How We Began
Muenster Milling Co. was founded in 1932 by the late Joe Felderhoff. Joe would buy grains from local family farms we still work with today and mill their wheat into flour. Unfortunately Joe passed away in a car accident while Arthur was still in his teens. However, that didn’t stop Arthur from taking over the business at an early age.
Soon after taking over the business, Arthur was drafted into the military, and spent 4 years over seas as a member of United States Military. Upon returning to Muenster in 1947, he discovered he could buy flour cheaper in Kansas than he could make it in Muenster. So, he converted our flour mill into a Feed Mill. For the next 30 years Arthur focused on making high quality livestock feeds for local farms and feed lots all over North Texas.
In 1974, Ronnie Felderhoff took over as president of the company and continued to grow Muenster Milling Co. in new areas such as show feeds and horse feeds. In 1989, Ronnie made a bold decision to completely change the course of Muenster Milling Co. forever and put in a pet food extruder.
At that time, pet food was mostly manufactured by a few large companies around the country, but Ronnie decided to enter the industry. Since that time Ronnie has led Muenster Milling Co. to create some innovative products such as the Muenster Natural pet food line in 1999 that was one of the first all-natural pet food diets.
In 2007, Mitch Felderhoff joined the company to head the sales and marketing department of the company, and his brother Chad Felderhoff joined in the summer of 2013. With the company now firmly in the 4th generation of Felderhoff’s, our commitment to excellence is stronger than ever.
