About Us

Jim Davern, Owner

Beck’s Garden Supplies is a wholesale distributor and manufacturer in the lawn and garden market. Celebrating 40 years in business, we are an industry leader in supplying independent garden centers, farm markets, nurseries and landscapers with high quality products at fair prices and exceptional service.

Originally founded by Bob Beck Sr. in the late 1950’s as a wholesaler of feed and peat moss, Becks has continually evolved its product line to meet the needs of a constantly developing industry. In 1977, Bob Beck, Jr. joined his father in a partnership, which would lead to his eventual take over of the company in 1982. Building a business on honesty, respect and a high level of customer service, Bob successfully managed and grew the business for more than 30 years. Also, Bob developed highly diverse product lines ranging from bagged and bulk commodities alike to truly make Beck’s Garden Supplies a one stop shopping experience for its customers.

After managing the day-to-day operations of Beck’s Garden Supplies for over 30 years, Bob’s son-in-law Jim Davern, joined the business in 2007 and spent two years learning operations and developing relationships with the current customer base and vendors. In 2009, Jim purchased the company.

Although the name on the door has changed, Jim continues to uphold the same core business philosophy that has made Beck’s an industry name synonymous with customer service, high quality products and competitive prices.  From one location you may choose from over 40 items to make a trailer load. This distribution facility is located in close proximity to over 95% of our active customer base, which allows for timely delivery.
