The Farmers Milling Company was a flour mill established in 1918[2] on town lot #28.

The mill's first directors included Bernard W. Zapfe, George M. Scheidler, Anthony Meyer, Bernard Hoeing, John H. Wheeldon, Frank Klosterkemper, and George Fry. $7000 was raised in capital stock for its founding.[2]

The mill would later be known as Smith Bros. Feed Mill after being purchased by Alvin Smith.[1] It was demolished in 2019 and is now a parking lot for the Knights of St. John Hall.
