The Family Center Story

Founded in 1965 by the Mills family, Family Center Farm & Home Stores remain family-owned and operated to this day. Family Center Farm & Home opened its first store under the name of Tractor Parts and Home Supply in Harrisonville, MO. Family Center’s largest store and corporate headquarters continues to operate in Harrisonville to this day as a part of the family-owned Mill-Walk Mall. Family Center stores also serve the Butler, Paola, Rolla, Ozark and St. Joseph communities.

Family Center Farm & Home offers customers more diverse products and services than other traditional “big box” stores. Family Center lives up to the moniker “The Everything Store” by offering top brand names like Ariat, Carhartt, Cub Cadet, Fire Chief, Priefert, Purina, Scotts, Stihl, and Weaver Leather to mention just a few.

“Family-owned” is not just a generic description for the Mills family. Bill and Blake Mills continue to play a vital role in everyday decisions and ensuring that their stores provide the best quality merchandise at the most competitive prices. Anchored by great employees and strong relationships throughout the communities they serve, Family Center Farm & Home provides for the heart of Harrisonville and its surrounding counties.

Family Center Farm & Home stand out from the competition by focusing on providing top-notch customer service. Family Center’s knowledgeable team members welcome customers with friendly greetings and big smiles the moment customers enter the store. Each Family Center Farm & Home employee is committed to meeting every customer’s needs, no matter how big or small.

Family Center Farm & Home also works to establish informal partnerships with other local businesses in our communities to give our customers extra values, services, and information.
