A New Mexico seed and supply store is celebrating 121 years in business. John B. Gill founded Roswell Seed and Produce back in 1898 and it’s been in the family ever since. 

Now, the business is operated by John’s great-grandson, James Gill, and his wife, Shirley. This Saturday, the couple is hosting a come and go celebration with donated cake and pizza, and a performance from a local dance troop.

They hope the community they’ve supplied with baby chicks, seeds, plants, and gardening tools for years will join them.
