Birkey's Farm Store Announces the Opening of New Urbana Facility

Birkey's Farm Store has announced the opening of its new store facility on High Cross Road in Urbana. The company is hosting a grand opening celebration on Friday, April 4,and a community day on Saturday, April 5th.

All day, visitors can view more than 30 vendor displays, including Case IH, Case Construction, Exmark, Kubota, and Wacker Neuson. Customers can also attend four educational clinics on planters, equipment leasing, Advanced Farming Systems, and Viscosity Oil/Fleetguard. Equipment demonstrations will take place at 2:30 p.m. A schedule is available on www.birkeys.com.

Community members are invited for coffee, pastries, and a store tour from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

Snacks are available during the day, and a free lunch will be served from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

About the New Building

Birkey's owners toured dealer facilities across the Midwest and worked with general contractor Drake Homes to incorporate the best features into the new Urbana store. The design focuses on safety, efficiency, and a comfortable experience for both customers and employees. The shop has a heated floor, energy-­-saving geothermal temperature control, and an overhead crane spanning the length of the building that will allow employees to easily move heavy items.

Birkey's new location is convenient to customers and offers space to bring equipment in and out.


Unlike the previous store, the new Birkey's location will be incorporated into the city of Urbana. “We are part of the community now and will support it in many ways, including tax dollars,” says Jeff Hedge, Birkey's Regional Manager.
