I have shopped at Houles before and was surprised that they had what I wanted (mostly) for a good price.

However, trying to find what I am looking for today without driving unnecessary miles, I called to inquire. Sure enough, the "friendliness" of the person answering the phone was non-existant. In fact, if he would have said they had it in stock, I would have not gone there anyway. Obviously they do not need my business.

I love Houle's! We have guinea pigs and I drive 24 miles each way to buy our timothy hay from them. I also get my premium cat food there. Great service! Nice people!

I would give the store 5 stars, if not for the service. The store itself is quite nice, with a good selection of feed and pretty decent prices. However, one time in particular, the staff was very inappropriate. I had this boy (I forget his name, but I believe it was Darren or Dylan, something along those lines) carry some feed to my car. When we got there he just threw the bags on my car hood and walked off. I called him back and he began getting belligerent. He began directing insults against my face and mother, before finally waving his private parts at me and returning to the store. I was rather suprised by this behavior. So overall, I recommend giving the store a try, just keep an eye on the staff.

Okay I dont get how you could say they have crabby staff.. Greg, the owner is often nice and knows alot about what he is talking about.. Krista, the little red head knows so much about horses.. Kelly knows alot about horses.. Duane always has birds to sell and is helpful.. Dave isn't really a people peson but he is a hard worker.. Joey carries the work load, Doesn't smile much but he will load your car, no problem, very strong too! Jared helps alot behind the counter and is always working.. Kimberly is very helpful when I come in, she knows alot about horses and is always smiling and happy.. So I dont understand how they are rude.. they are the best people ever!!!!

We have started buying our dog food there, because they sell high quality foods at the lowest prices I have found anywhere (including on-line). Also, they are extremely friendly and helpful. The kids love to visit because there are so many interesting things to look at.

I don't understand who the rude employees could be because I have always had outstanding service. I have gotten good advice on dog food, cat food, horse food and bird food. I have bought horse tack there. I got advice on which breed of chicken to buy also. They know everything and are very nice people.

I had tried calling the store to ask a question about hay bales, an employee picked up the phone and hung it up 3 times in a row. I assumed that the phone was not working correctly, as I have never heard of a business answering the phone only to hang up on potential customers. So, I called a 4th time the guy answered the phone in a very irritated tone "Houles" when I asked him my question he simply said " I don't know like $5.99" and hung up on me!! I could not believe it! If this is how they treat customers before you even make it into there store I think I'll have to pass! And I recommend anyone reading this do the same!!

We have shopped there for several years.
The bird seed can be purchased in any amounts.
I have found the staff extremely helpful-the prices reflect the good service and good advise.
You can order any type of chicks in the spring and pick them up there instead of the post office.

I have been going to Houles for years. They have an outstanding selection of food and accessories for all types of animals and birds alike. Some things are a little more expensive than the big-mart stores, but supporting the little local business is a priority. They have always been friendly and very helpful. And you never know what type of cute, 4 legged creature you may find curled up next to the counter. I recommend them to whomever is looking for an animal specialty store.

If you are looking for a decent (sometimes over priced) place to buy horse tack Houles Farm and Garden is worth the trip. They have a unique collection of tack, including horse sheets and blankets that are hard to find at Petsmart, but don't ask the staff to help you...God forbid they would have to do any work! They are often rude and put off by customer questions. If you know what you are looking for, and don't talk to any one, you should be fine! Sometimes I hate to give my business to such cranky people but when you can't find it anywhere else what are you going to do?!

PROS: Great selection of horse tack
CONS: Employees often forget to take their "Nice Pills"

Don't pass up the Stillwater Farm, Garden, and Pet amongst all the antique stores in Stillwater. They have some neat gift ideas like bird feeders, flags and windsocks, as well as pet food and bird food. They will help you select the right food for whatever animal or bird you are looking for. Items are a little pricey though.
