HIGHLAND, Mich. (WXYZ) — Maher Feed and Pet Supply in Highland and Holly is doing its part to help sustain agriculture during the coronavirus pandemic.
“The reason we are able to be open during this time is we feed upwards of 25 and 30 ton of products into the product on a weekly basis be a horse, poultry, bedding for animals, dog food, cat food,” said owner Mike Maher.
They also sell seeds to people looking to build their own gardens.
Customers are now encouraged to do business over the phone. People can choose to have their orders delivered, or have items brought out curbside.
“Now we’re been purposefully distant, and, you know, dealing with costumers through cracked windows and loading without any interaction at all,” said Maher.
There is a $5 delivery fee; however frontline workers can get their orders delivered for free.
“What can we do as a small family business, let us bring you a bag of dog food, let us carry out your pin shavings and horse feed and bring it to the farm, just let us help you,” said Maher.
Their hours at both locations have changed during the pandemic. Their Holly location is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. In Highland they are open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Both locations are closed on Sundays.
