We Believe We Should Feed Our Animals As Well As We Feed Ourselves.
Union Point Custom Feeds gives small to mid-sized farmers and homesteaders access to custom-milled, high-quality feeds that are normally available only to those ordering many tons of feed at a time.
We mill in relatively small quantities.
One or two tons are common orders. You can get your own custom feed in ton lots, or you can get individual bags or whole tons of our proven formulas that we keep in stock.
well known for OUR consultative approach.
We pride ourselves on formulating wholesome, nutrient-dense feeds that make sense for the family farm. Many of Oregon’s most respected small farmers and hobbyists look to us for their animals’ feeds, and we’re proud of their confidence in us. They can count on quality, consistency, and strict adherence to formulas. Our formulas are developed for farmers who want to feed their animals in a way that matches their overall farming goals.
Ingredient quality REMAINS paramount.
We are dedicated to using the highest quality ingredients available. Many of our ingredients are grown locally. Many are even human-grade.
We offer a range of Non-GMO, conventional, herbicide and pesticide-free and organic grains in formulas we develop to suit the unique needs of your farm.
We were pioneers in making corn and soy-free non-GMO feed, and not only do our waste-free feed formulas work, but we know exactly why they work so well when others disappoint.
we offer complete services and have the ability to perform nearly all grain processing operations.
Our equipment is versatile and precise, clean and simple. We can chop, crack, grind, mix, sweeten, pellet and bag all kinds of feed. We are proud of our high standards and quality control. Lots of mills can make lots of cheap feed. We can make limited amounts of high quality feeds.
As family farmers, we understand the unique needs of our customers.
We strive to make the very best feeds possible in a way that works for your animals, your beliefs, and your rural lifestyle. We farm ourselves. That’s been our approach since we opened our doors in 2001, and is exactly why we continue to enjoy a solid and growing presence in the sustainable agriculture movement.
We take it personally — and professionally.

She will advise you on what works, as well as the technical aspects of feed production.

How it began: History of the mill.
In operating Union Point Ranch, near Brownsville, Oregon, we regularly wished for a reliable source for the high-quality feeds we wanted for our horses, poultry, sheep, cows, and other animals. In our search for the right feeds in the right amounts, we found that we were not alone. There was no longer a source for small quantities of fresh, high-quality custom feeds in our area.
So, in 2001, we went to work. We applied our knowledge of animal husbandry, belief in the central role nutrition plays in the animal health equation, and 25 years of experience in the business world. We talked to the animals’ owners about their feed needs and concerns and we researched the best ways to fill feed orders of all sorts and sizes. We built our own mill to ensure we could meet the demands we had identified. Soon after, we began turning out small amounts of feeds in an old-fashioned tradition that puts quality first.
We named the mill after the location of our ranch and the pioneer townsite on which it was built. But after all these years, it's also an appropriate name for what we do as we build each feed: We're always in search of the perfect union of ingredients, source, nutrition and form for our animals
