Since the beginning of our story way back in 1955, every generation of our team has been continuously focused on being the best possible resource for anything and everything agriculture in West Texas. We’re proud of where we’re from, we’re proud of our culture, and we’re pleased to serve such an essential part of them both.

Here’s a quick glance at the history of how “Your Local John Deere Dealer” got to where we are today!


L.J. “Red” Hurst opened the first Hurst Farm Supply location in Lorenzo with the mission of providing his local community and its surrounding areas with John Deere equipment and unbeatable customer service.


After nearly 20 years of perfecting what it meant to provide customers with the very best products and services, our Crosbyton location was added to serve as an additional sales and service center.


Fast-forward another 17 years, and Hurst Farm Supply has grown substantially with the acquisition of Lubbock and Slaton locations from Bryant Farm Supply.


Time to head north! 2004 saw the addition of our Abernathy location, which was purchased from Joe Thompson Implement as a way to serve the agriculturally-rich community that has been celebrated there for generations.


The 2012 purchase of our Snyder and Colorado City locations from Key Bros. allowed us to pursue our mission of providing exceptional products and services in places beyond the homes that we had grown accustomed to.


Now, 65 years later, Hurst Farm Supply has grown into a seven-store dealership that employs a team of over 130 people. As we continue to grow and evolve year after year, so too does the technology, equipment, and service that we provide. With the incredible support of our loyal communities behind us, we are blessed to be bigger and better than we’ve ever been before.

But, as long as you need us, our mission will never be totally accomplished. We are eager to continue to work hard, serve humbly, and grow in our ability to help you thrive. After all, we succeed when you succeed!
