We’re celebrating the changing of the seasons by welcoming another new dealer into the Valley Irrigation network. It’s been busy here at Valley as we’ve added an Arizona dealer, a Kansas dealer and now a new Washington dealer in the last month.
Last week, Yelm Farm and Pet joined our dealer network. The team traveled from Yelm, Wash., to Valley, Neb., to meet our team, tour the plant and complete the process of becoming a Valley dealer.
Yelm Farm and Pet is a family-owned business that specializes in farm supplies, livestock feed, general pet necessities, pet feed, fencing supplies, farm equipment, propane and vet supplies. Owner David Brueske, who has worked in plumbing and irrigation since he was a kid, says the business sells pumps and well supplies, and recently became interested in expanding its irrigation offerings.
“We got to a point where we just wanted to do business with Valley, and Valley was accepting, which surprised us,” Brueske jokes.
Actually, Valley is lucky to have this small business with a large customer base join its network.
“We’re a really customer-oriented business,” Brueske said. “We take a lot of pride in how we take care of our customers.”
Yelm Farm and Pet also takes good care of its employees, many of whom have been with them since the beginning.
“We try to take care of our employees as well as our customers.”
That’s a philosophy that fits perfectly with the values here at Valley.
