Murdoch’s Ranch and Home Supply

Read on to learn more about Murdoch’s mission and why it’s so valuable to 4-H members in Colorado and other western states. 

Please describe your organization…

Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply is a modern day mercantile devoted to three hard-working, honest ideals: carry lots of down-to-earth merchandise, be a place that the whole family loves to visit and let our gratitude for our customers be evident in every interaction.

The Murdoch’s family of stores are currently located in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Idaho, and online. In our stores you will find quality merchandise, great values, and most importantly, knowledgeable, friendly staff who are there to help. Not only will you find everything a working ranch needs, but we also cater to the needs of a regular do-it-yourselfer and the outdoor enthusiast. Take a look around: you’ll find everything from hardware and fencing, to animal feed and health products, to toys and tack, plus much, much more.

What is Murdoch’s history of supporting 4-H in Colorado?

Murdoch’s has long been a proud supporter of 4-H – We have over twenty years of history together!

How is Murdoch’s currently supporting the Colorado 4-H Foundation? 

Each Murdoch’s store works directly with clubs in their communities to help fundraise, build club awareness, recruit new members and volunteers, and provide opportunities to share their work and practice their skills. Murdoch’s also supports Colorado 4-H by providing a discount card for active 4-H members, allowing them to save on various items for their projects throughout the year. In addition to the discounts and support at the local store level, Murdoch’s donates $5,000 in scholarship money each year to the Colorado 4-H Foundation.


Why is it important to your business to support Colorado’s 4-H youth?

Building lasting partnerships and relationships, uniting with those who dedicate their time and energy to strengthen their communities and families, is part of our core values. We know that you put a lot of time and energy into your 4-H projects, and we want to help because we believe in the positive impacts they create. In addition, 4-H is a large part of who we are! A large number of Murdoch’s team members grew up in and with 4-H.

How does the mission/vision of Murdoch’s Ranch and Home Supply align with 4-H values?

We are committed to family, working with a positive attitude, embracing change, and delivering value. This commitment to our family and communities is a long-standing tradition at our company, and it forms the foundation from which we operate. We believe that, when possible, we can all contribute to making the lives of those in our communities better.

What have you found to be the most rewarding part of supporting our state’s 4-H program?

We love seeing and hearing from current 4-H members – whether in stores or out and about in the community and following them through their projects, from beginning to end.

Were/are you or other employees involved in 4-H?

Many of our employees are former 4-H members!
