  • Hutchinsons' History

    Hutchinsons' History

    Thomas Hutchinson had been involved in farming and corn and scutch milling in Druminard since the late 1800’s. After the demise of scutch milling, his son Sandy founded the present mill on the site of the original scutch mill in the 1940’s. During the following years the new idea of compound feed milling was developed and replaced the old inefficient corn mills. Production in those days consisted mainly of pig feeds, and as the company grew and expanded it took on the name of Thomas Hutchinson & Sons Ltd in 1956. In 1974, Ian Hutchinson joined the family business and the mill grew from strength to strength with the installation of its first pellet press in 1982 and a consequent doubling in production.

    Growth continued through the following 2 decades, but with a shift in focus to ruminant sales. Since 2008, Hutchinson’s Feeds, as we are now better known, has been a dedicated ruminant feed mill and we pride ourselves in being specialists in Dairy nutrition. With the 4th generation of the family now involved, the company has continued to grow and develop with a highly skilled workforce from ordering to manufacturing and delivery. Support for our farming customers is also provided from a strong team of experts in ruminant management and nutrition.
