About Us


In 1982, Lloyd Shoppa founded Shoppa’s Farm Supply, Inc. by purchasing his first store in Bay City, Texas. Five years later in 1987, he purchased a John Deere dealership in El Campo and expanded Shoppa’s to a second location. Chris Shoppa, Lloyd’s son, joined the company as president in 1996 after many years in the banking profession; that same year, Shoppa’s acquired two existing dealerships in the towns of East Bernard and Eagle Lake. By 1997, Shoppa’s grew to five dealerships with the purchase of another existing dealership in Edna. 

In 2007, Shoppa’s became the official tractor provider for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo – a title it still holds to this day. In 2009, the company added a sixth location in Victoria and, by 2012, had built a new store and consolidated the Edna location to Victoria. That same year, the Eagle Lake store was also consolidated to East Bernard, bringing the total number of store locations to four.

In 2014, Shoppa’s purchased John Deere dealerships in both Beaumont and Liberty – increasing locations back up to six. The strategic purchase of these two locations in East Texas gave Shoppa’s the ability to sell into Houston and its surrounding counties for the first time. Finally, in October of 2016, Shoppa’s added the Giddings and Shiner locations – bringing the company to its current total of eight John Deere dealerships. 

Lloyd Shoppa retired in 2018 and turned the reigns of the company over to Chris and his son Will, who entered the business in 2014.
