West Side Seed Co. was founded in the early 1960s by Jack Brian and Jack Holt. A few years later, it was purchased by Samuel Quinton "Q" Johnson and was renamed Johnson's Seed and Feed. Fast forward to 1981 and Johnson's was purchased by Steve Ashcraft. After a few years, Steve brought on Randy Johnson (no relation to Q) as a partner. Randy then bought out Steve in 1991. In 2006 Cale Ashcraft (Steve's son) bought Johnson's Seed and Feed from Randy Johnson and the rest is history.
