    History

    In 1975, Richard and Myron Smith began selling feed at Smith Bros. Inc. to friends and acquaintances. As word of their feed business grew, an addition was put on to the existing Feed Room to handle the larger volume of sales. With the addition to The Feed Room came two massive Saint Bernard’s named Barry and Trinket, who were sure to greet customers with wagging tales. Richard Smith always had raccoons that would nest near the building, and soon enough they too became pets in The Feed Room.

    With business continuing to grow, Dave Lenaberg was hired in 1990 to run The Feed Room. The Feed Room’s first box truck was purchased in 1995, allowing a feed route to be established for further customer convenience. Following in Barry and Trinket’s pawprints, Dave introduced Lacey, the lovable Yellow Lab, to The Feed Room in 2004. After many years of service together, Dave and Lacey both retired from The Feed Room on December 31, 2018.

    In 2019, Christina Salerno was hired to take charge of The Feed Room. 2019 also brought the addition of Zoey and Riley, a brother and sister feline duo. The Feed Room is still constantly expanding in product lines and services, and remains a reliable, steady source for animal nutrition in Northeast Ohio.

    Zoey and Riley Smith

    Zoey and Riley are The Feed Room’s very own mouse enforcers and quality assurance team. Rescued from the Medina County SPCA, Zoey and Riley are an unstoppable, and lovable, brother-sister duo. However, these two are no ordinary cats! Zoey and Riley are polydactyl, meaning they have an extra toe on their front paws, making it look as if they have thumbs. In their off time (which is roughly 23 hours per day), you will find them lounging around various spots throughout the farm, eagerly waiting for head and belly scratches from our customers.
