P7090041This is the mill that we buy our organic chicken feed from. Modesto Milling mills organic feed for many farms as far away as Petaluma. In previous postings i listed what was in the feed. Each of the ingredients need to be mixed together and then pelletized. trucks drive under the hoppers and are loaded and weighed before departing for the farms. The ingredients arrive by truck or rail car. There is a rail track next to the mill.
Our long term vision is to have all our feed grown locally and store it on the farm. We will then roll or crack the grains the day we feed them to the chickens. This will make the feed fresher and maybe save us a little money in the long run.
