Children and adults alike LOVE our store experience!  Since 1928, Quality Feed & Garden has become a Houston tradition, but many “city people” never had the chance for a close and intimate personal experience with a bunny or chicken.  A tour of our store offers that and so much more!  If your school or group is interested in touring the store, contact us for details.  There’s plenty of parking for cars and buses alike, and facilities for an afternoon picnic after the tour.  Tours include hands on contact with livestock, the feed animals eat, seeds farmers plant, and more!  Ask about the Quality Feed & Garden coloring book for children!
