About Us


Planktown Hardware & More is definitely not your typical hardware store as you will quickly notice when you walk in the door and see the beautiful pine barn siding on the walls and the large wooden pergola featuring some of our newest items. Since the hardware opened just a few years ago in 2008, we have nearly doubled in size and in inventory! You will likely be greeted by Biscuit, a chocolate lab/customer service manager, or Stanley, a friendly gray cat who will probably follow you around the store.

Pets & Livestock Biscuit and Stanley oversee the expansive pet department, featuring grain free pet foods, Natures Farmacy Dogzymes supplements, all natural shampoos, toys, and USA made treats. We also carry livestock supplies, including ADM feed, supplements, feeders, flat back buckets, horse halters, show sticks, medications, Red Lake diatomaceous earth, chick supplies, and more.

Garden & Yard Our garden section is especially helpful in Spring and Summer, providing tools, fertilizers, heavy duty tomato cages, and organic pest control aids, as well as a large selection of seeds, bulk seed corn, vidalia onions (both plants and sets), sweet potato starts, and seed potatoes with emphasis on heirloom and hard-to-find varieties. We also carry the pond chemicals you need to keep your ponds clean and beautiful!

Cast Iron Cookware There are Lodge cast irons skillets and dutch ovens, Blackstone Griddles, camping cookware, and large cast iron kettles with tripods. Plus let’s not forget the old-fashioned heavy duty cast iron pie irons just like you used growing up as a child.
