About Sparr Building and Farm Supply

The magic began in 1947 on three acres, ten miles north of Ocala, Florida. Not all the roads were paved and the only other building nearby was a small church located just across the street. The surrounding agricultural community was growing and a need for building materials, farm supplies & livestock feeds emerged.

Mr. and Mrs. Elbert Griggs opened Sparr Building & Farm Supply with a vision to provide a quality product and willingness to treat each customer like family. The original store had gas pumps and groceries along with general hardware and lumber merchandise. Long-time customers still talk about materials being unloaded by hand from railcars and carried to the store and lumberyard. In 1981, the Howard family purchased the business from their aunt and uncle, the Griggs.

As the community grew from dominantly agricultural to semi-rural residential area, the customer base steadily increased. However, the family-oriented environment continued to be an important component to operating the store. Customers found it uplifting to walk in the store and be welcomed by their name from a sales clerk. Continued success allowed Sparr Building and Farm Supply to expand and build a larger store in 1990. It is located directly across from the original building.

Over the years, Sparr Building & Farm Supply has maintained a positive reputation throughout the area. Locally, when residents say, "I'm going down to Sparr," most are referring to the store instead of the town it resides in. Today brothers Sam & Paul Howard actively own and operate the business. By dedicating themselves to the business, working hard to keep the family values and traditions a part of the everyday operations has led to tremendous growth.

As of 1998, Sparr Building & Farm Supply had grown from a small retail store to the largest farm fence dealer in the state of Florida. The Sparr location covered 15 acres which includes a showroom, state of the art lumber yard, warehouse, and hay storage. A new statewide delivery service became available and also included drop shipments of merchandise throughout the United States and South America.

Expansions began again in 1999 with the addition of a second store in Williston, Florida. The location was perfect and the values upheld by Sparr's ownership and management fit right in with those in the community. The residents accepted and welcomed the new store because of the reputation Sparr Building & Farm Supply had built throughout the state.

In 2003, Sparr Building & Farm Supply acquired a third store in Wildwood, Florida and has currently moved to a 30,000 sq. ft. facility at 6000 Signature Dr., at the corner of Signature Dr. and Highway 44, in Wildwood. With three locations in North Central Florida, Sparr is better able to serve the state by continuing the tradition of providing quality products with genuine service.

The expansions of the Sparr and Williston locations were completed in 2004, giving both locations more warehouse space and a state of the art lumberyard. The Sparr location is currently covering 30 acres.
