Old Tyme Feed: May Small Business of the Month

The Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce is proud to recognize Olde Tyme Feed as the May 2018 Small Business of the Month. This Fairhope staple has been a longtime partner in the community. They are constantly involved in community-wide fundraisers and charitable events and even willing to loan plants for high school signing day and photo opportunities. Owner, Cecil Christenberry has served as bingo caller for the Eastern Shore Chamber Young Professional’s Pencil’s and Glue fundraiser. Old Tyme Feed has also been the graduation sponsor for the Student Training and Exploration Program for many years.

"I have always felt that to be successful in a small business, it is absolutely imperative to "give back" and really be involved in the entire community.  We have so many wonderful opportunities to do this very thing and the Chamber helps us in this matter.  We are grateful for the support of our wonderful customer base and we desire for them to know that the support we receive allows us to donate to special causes through golf tournaments, school events, chamber events and embracing the shop local attitude,” said Christenberry.

The Christenberrys moved to Fairhope in 1984 and opened Old Tyme Feed three years later. "Linda and I felt a strong sense of comfort, joy and confidence in the Fairhope community,” said Christenberry. "We remain inspired today with the small town feeling of love and support as we now have been blessed with three grandsons and a granddaughter all living in Fairhope and "growing up" in the same small business that their mothers grew up enjoying!  We LOVE being a part of this special place!”

Cecil served eight years on the Fairhope City Council and has served on the Baldwin County School Board since 2014. He served as President of Fairhope First, runs the auction for Taste of Rotary and for library fundraisers.
