The Feed Mill

The Feed Mill

There was another mill located off the TransCanada Highway, close to Eliot River School.  It is said that this feed mill was established by Rollie Hyde in the late 1950’s or early 60’s.5  Gordon Nicholson bought this mill from Rollie Hyde in 1980.  He ran the feed mill until 2005 and it was torn down only a few short years ago.  During the time Gordon owned the mill, he employed approximately seven people and was in the business of making mostly custom mixes, including pig feed, horse feed, and beef feed. When the hog industry started to decline in the mid 1990’s, Gordon’s business unfortunately also started to decline.  The hog and cattle industry was the main source of business for the mill.  As the years went by, the need began to decline.  As a result, the business declined as well, and the mill shut down in 2006.6

Although there was no mill in North River, there was a mill that ran for many years in Warren Grove.  There were also several mills in Clyde River which ran for many years as well.
