In 1986 the Johnsons decided to start and operate a mill and feed store. We purchased a used hammer mill (a major piece of equipment that's needed to grind grains into livestock feed), built a building on a couple acres of Ross's land, moved in the hammer mill, and went at it. Three generations work side by side to keep this place going. The key players are Ross, who’s the head of the family and is referred to as the “head honcho”; his wife Lorene; their son Jeff; Jeff’s wife Donna; and Jeff and Donna’s sons Justin and Bradley. Although Ross and Lorene’s daughter, Tina and her family live miles away from Taylorsville; Tina, and her husband, Hugh, along with their children, Thomas and Amy, help out when needed.
