Braxton Farm Supply...another family-owned serving the community for decades


Definitely another of the local businesses on which many Braxton Countians depend, Braxton Farm Supply had its start with the Cole family. Later the Hutchisons acquired the business and have been operating it since that time.
Lois Cole, the daughter of one of the three original owners explained that her grandfather ——Simon Cole Sr., along with her father—Simon (Bud) Cole, Jr., and Harry Wright began the first Braxton Farm Supply when she was in elementary school. “They began what many at that time termed a ‘feed store’ because the only one in the Gassaway area at that time was Gerwig’s in Chapel,” she said.

Several different individuals appeared before the Braxton County Commission at their regular meeting last Friday, October 17. Mike Baker, EMS/9-1-1 Director was first to address the Commission.
Baker requested that Tony Rogers’ status with the EMS be changed from part-time to full-time. Rogers had resigned his full time position in recent months to take a position with the Town of Sutton. Baker asked that Rogers be made full-time at an hourly rate of $11.23 per hour with full county benefits. The request was approved on a motion by Gary Ellyson. Rogers will serve a 90 day probationary period.
