Big Rapids Farm and Garden was founded in the fall of 1968 by Richard Millis and Ken Draper. After returning from the Army, in 1971, Ron Millis took over as manager. In 1980, the first grain dryer bins were constructed. Five years later a scale and warehouse were added to hold bulk fertilizer and weigh bulk grain, lime, and fertilizer. Then in 1998, a brand new storefront was constructed. In the Summer of 2016, Steve Cramer purchased Big Rapids Farm & Garden from Ron Millis.
