Historical Drawing of Dexter MillDexter Mill is proud to sell Purina Mills® feed products. We stand behind the products we sell and the services provided by our knowledgeable staff.

Since 1919, Dexter Mill has been serving the needs of customers in Dexter, Michigan and surrounding communities. In November of that year, a group of about 50 farmers agreed to found the Dexter Agricultural Association, later renamed the Dexter Co-Op. Using the railroad access to ship and receive farm supplies and products, the Co-Op sold to members at low mark-ups and helped them to market their own products.

The Co-Op was ultimately sold to Washtenaw Farm and Garden Center in 1969, and is currently run as the Dexter Mill. It provides many of the same services as the old Co-Op did, including making feed, selling supplies like fertilizer and feed, and providing for the needs of the community.

Services and new products have been added, including the greenhouse which opens in the spring and offers a wide variety of perennial and annual plants.  We cater to recreational  hobby farms, pets and working farms.

Dexter Mill continues the tradition by offering lawn and garden products, wild bird and pet feed and supplies, equine supplies and feed, Carhartt clothing, boots, tack, and nearly anything else that you might need.

We look forward to serving you in the future.
