Originally brought by train from Ashland, WI in 1932, the Feed Mill has served the Hayward community since. We are currently a cooperative owned and operated retail pet store and grooming  salon. With a love of pets we subscribe to the highest pet industry standards in the care and grooming of your pet. All of the staff are personable and have many years experience around pets so you can be assured that yours will be in good hands! Our aim is to create an informal and lasting relationship with you and your pet.


We conduct our business with honesty and integrity and encourage owners to share in the

health and happiness of their pet.



Our Feed Mill has much to offer.

Let’s start with the history of our building…

This building was transported by train in 1932, to start the Northern Lakes Cooperative.history-1

Northern Lakes Cooperative was formed in 1932 by a group of sixty farmers that were fed up with paying high fuel prices to large petroleum monopolies. Through the 1930’s the cooperative added fuel outlets in surrounding communities, as well as groceries, farm supplies, and a grain elevator.

And now, here we are with a remodeled store, and up to date grooming space!
