Lester's Material Service - A Strong Family Business
We are part of the community, not just a business!


Second Generation Sales & Service

Although things were financially bad, through hard work and determination, as well as the help of their understanding vendors and bankers, loyal customers, and most of all God’s gracious miracle, they have come through the storm and into the sunshine.

Today, “Lester's Material Service, Inc. is a stable company that has ‘weathered the storms’ then and today during these rough economic times because of loyal customers, vendors and bankers who have grown up with us and put their trust in us and of our history with them. We thank all who have stood by us and all those who will allow us to service their topsoil, hardscape and landscape supply and installation needs now and in the future.”

NOTE:  Do not be fooled by imposters, our primary company color is red with yellow/black/silver lettering with the buffalo logo.  If you don’t see that, then it is not us. 

Whatever happened to the buffalo you ask?  In early 2000 a second herd was located in Salem, WI.  Harvard Farm was sold and on May 2004 the Harvard herd was reunited with the Salem, WI herd and are there today.  Ron Lester renovated one of the barns on the farm so he could sell the meat in Salem, WI off of Hwy K just east of Hwy W and north of Hwy 50 where he welcomes visitors.  If you go in the spring you might catch a baby buffalo being born.
