    Good for you! Its to far for me to travel too, but I wish you all the best- these events are just so much fun! (and no one tires of you talking about chickens all day! ha ha)

    Remember to bring fresh eggs to sell too! Not just chicken people come, non chicken folks love to look and learn and fresh eggs are the BEST! mmmmm!

    Aroostook Milling Company

    What can you tell me about Aroostook Milling Company? Do they mill local grains, mix feed, that sort of stuff? Or, is it just a fancy name for a farm and garden store?

    I have googled, but I can't find a website for them.​

    Tim-- they have a mill and sell all kinds of grain, etc. They also have the 'usual' farm and garden supplies there. They seem to have quite a bit of stock on hand considering 'the county' doesn't have a huge population. They are no TSC, but they do well. And their customer service is great.

    Aroostook Milling Co -
    15 Hillview Ave, Houlton - (207) 532-6130

    They dont' have a website ( I wish they did!)
