In 2017 The Mill began a company wide FFA Day. Maryland State Officers, Pennsylvania State Officers and local chapters have the opportunity to tour Mill facilities and learn about the company. FFA members typically meet at our Bel Air location to understand the operations and the history of the company. They speak with Mill President, Henry Holloway and then disperse amongst our other locations. While in our stores, members speak with customers about the organization and fundraise for their chapter.

Many Mill employees were former 4-H and FFA members. During the two FFA days, they hang their jackets in the stores. They enjoy peeking back into their pockets and finding old banquet notes and other trinkets. Some can even still fit in their jackets! David Holloway won the award "Oldest Hips and It Still Zips."

This Year's FFA Day Promo Items

  • "Buck a Bag" $1 from every bag of Mill branded livestock and horse feed and $1 from every Mill horse supplement will be donated towards the chapter.

For years, Black Horse 4-H Club chose a day in May to sell pit meats and activities for customers. As the event grew in popularity, The Mill's "Black Horse 4-H Day" changed to The Mill's "4-H Day". Every store hosts a local 4-H club and members spend the day selling items and talking to the community about the program. Some locations have petting zoos, pony rides, games and bake sales. Contact your nearest location to know what they have planned!

The Mill values the experiences and skills children gain when participating in 4-H. Mill President, Henry Holloway, and Partner Ben Hushon purchase numerous animals at 4-H livestock auctions every year throughout the summer. The Mill also has livestock experts to help 4-Hers develop a nutritional plan for their animals.
