FOGLE’S, a family owned and operated business was founded in 1977 as Fogel Forest Products by founders Don and Sharon Fogle. The bark mulch was processed and sold from the Fogle residence on Hoffa Mill Road, Lewisburg, PA.
In 1988 a property at 160 Hoffa Mill Road was purchased to provide a building for the maintenance and repairs of equipment, and in 1992 it also became the site for the coal business. A scale was purchased and added to the property and rice, buckwheat, pea, and chestnut Hazleton hard coal are sold there.
The Fogle’s son, Kent, joined the business in 1989. Kent is a graduate of Ohio Diesel Tech and is the Director of Operations.
In 1999 the Lord provided an opportunity to purchase the 78 acre Musser farm located three miles west of Lewisburg along Route 45, which enabled the expansion of the business.
In 2000 a retail store was opened to expand the line of mulch products and to introduce bagged mulch, decorative stone products, mushroom soil and topsoil. Over time the business became known simply as “FOGLE’S”.
Kent’s wife, Cris, a graduate of PA College of Technology, joined FOGLE’S in 2001. Cris presently is in charge of product development, involved in office management, and has added custom stone engraving to our services.
In 2006 a 60’ x 100’ storage building was erected on the property to house equipment and supply additional storage space, and in 2009 the wholesale end of the business along with the actual processing of the mulch were relocated from the Fogle residence to the retail site along Route 45.
The growing interest and popularity in hardscape with pavers, wallstones, kits, and lights for outdoor living resulted in FOGLE’S obtaining dealerships for Cambridge Stone, and Yukon Valley Natural Stone in 2013.
In 2014 the store product line was expanded to include hardscape as well as landscape supplies. This was also the year Derek Fogle, a grandson, joined the business full time. Derek is primarily responsible for mulch bagging and property maintenance, as well as assisting in other areas.
The goal of all employees at FOGLE’S is customer satisfaction with prompt and friendly service, quality products at fair prices, and professional advice provided year round.
