Who We Are


Welcome to Empire Seed!

Empire Seed Co. began as a feed store in 1937. Today, we're a 30-year supplier of STIHL –the industry leader for both the homeowner and professional markets in the central Texas area.

We are committed to supplying the finest outdoor power equipment possible in a fun and professional atmosphere. With a broad range of knowledge in an ever-changing industry, Empire Seed Co. employees can answer almost any question you have and can fit a piece of equipment to any situation. Quick and quality service is our goal.

Whether you're in the market for reliable STIHL outdoor power equipment – trimmers, blowers, legendary chainsaws – or looking for installation and service of lawn sprinkler systems, or even if you're just browsing, you'll get a warm welcome at Empire Seed Co.

Empire Seed Co. is located in downtown Temple, TX, at the intersection of East Avenue A and North 2nd Street. From I-35, take the Central Ave exit, and head east on Central Avenue to make a right on North 2nd Street. From there it's only two blocks to our intersection. Come visit us today!

Independent We Stand
We are very proud to be a retailer of the STIHL product line. As an independent Dealer, we can provide many services that the big box chain stores just can't match. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always ready to help you select the equipment that meets your specific needs. We can offer fast, professional service for your STIHL equipment after the sale. Your equipment comes fully assembled and ready to use, and our staff can give you in-store safety and operating demonstrations so that you can get started on your tasks as soon as you get home.

In support of independent retail stores across that country, STIHL is a proud sponsor of Independent We Stand - a nationwide movement supporting independently owned businesses and the role they serve in local economies. You can continue to support the cause by shopping at your area's locally owned businesses, including your neighborhood independent STIHL Dealer.
