Local vendors have been invited to many of The Mill's locations for this event.
An update from Emily Anderson, Andrea’s Mother,
Andrea is finally feeling better. The infection (Typhilitis) has responded to the antibiotics and her pain is under control. She still isn’t allowed any food or water by mouth in order to let her gut heal. We are still waiting for her body to start making white cells again. She is still at zero and has no immune system at the moment. Hopefully her counts will begin to climb and she can safely go home in a few weeks. Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. They have been greatly appreciated.
*The Andersons are Mill customers. Community members have gathered funds to help support the family and Andrea’s siblings interest in showing livestock.*

4-H DAY AT THE MILL
The Mill’s Annual 4-H Day brings members from local clubs in touch with our customers. Although every Mill store showcases their club differently, 4-H Day luxuries often include food, animals, coupons and more. Based on the day’s proceeds, The Mill will donate to each clubs and the remainder will benefit the Maryland 4-H Foundation.
BOY SCOUTS VISIT THE MILL OF BLACK HORSE
The Mill’s Ben Hushon gave a tour of our Black Horse Retail and Fertilizer Facilities to a local Boy Scout group. The Mill’s Crop department places a large emphasis on the importance of sustainability and good stewardship of the land in order to protect and preserve the crops, environment and our community.
FFA DAY AT THE MILL
The Mill’s Annual FFA Day brings members from Maryland and Pennsylvania FFA chapters into the industry. The members tour our Bel Air facility, Black Horse Crops Facility and spread amongst our six stores to fundraise. Thanks to Mill customers, this year the members raised $1,361.70!
FIRST PRESBYTERIAN PRESCHOOL VISITS THE MILL
The Mill of Bel Air hosted more than 25 preschoolers from First Presbyterian Preschool. The children pet a duckling and chick, planted a sunflower seed and created a bagel bird feeder!
NORTH HARFORD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
The Mill donated birdseed to North Harford Elementary school. Students created birdseed ornaments to take home and hang on a tree in their back yards. The entire school participated in the activity!
We welcome all friendly animals to our Pet Pictures with Santa! Each location hosts a 4-hour time slot for our community members to bring their pets in for a picture. There is a $5 donation. Donations are donated to local rescues.
The Mill proudly supports 4-H, FFA, and other non-profit organizations, local clubs and groups throughout Maryland and Pennsylvania. We enjoy taking that extra step to help children with their livestock projects and other exhibits. You can find our staff at county fairs and local parades.
