Historic M & W Milling property up for auction (Sponsored)
This history of M & W Milling is sponsored by Golden Rule-Wilson. Bidding for the historic M & W Milling property is taking place in an Online-Only, Absolute Auction that ends this coming Tuesday, November 1, 2022.
M & W Milling has been serving Adair County and the surrounding area for over 50 years now. M & W Milling came to be in 1969 when the owner of a local feed mill, Tom Tabor, approached local farmer Harold Willis about selling him the mill. Soon after that meeting, Mr. Willis teamed up with Bill McClendon, and M & W Milling was formed.
McClendon and Willis first operated the feed mill on Hudson Street in Columbia, near where Udell's Fruit Market is located today. Mr. Willis sold out to Mr. McClendon about 4 years later, and Mr. McClendon continued operating the mill through the 1970s, when he sold it out to Homer & Bertha Goodin.
During the Goodin's ownership, in 1981, they moved the M & W Milling operation to its current location at 510 Short Street in Columbia.
Charles Barnes was operating an existing feed mill at the Short Street location when the Goodins purchased the property. They moved M & W to the new location, and, of course, the well-known name of M & W also moved with them. The Goodins and a partner, Burkmann Feeds out of Danville, continued operations through the 1980's, 1990's and into the 21st Century.
In 2005, Mark and Cinda Meyer purchased the property and continued the long-standing tradition of using this well-known location to supply quality feed, minerals and other farm supplies to Adair County and the surrounding area. The Meyers also added Kentucky Proud Products along with local meats to their storefront. The Meyers family has continued operating M & W Milling through the current date. For the past 5 years, they have been partnering with Burkmann Feeds, who has leased the storefront.
It is worth noting that not many businesses make it as long as M & W Milling has. The big question is, "Will M & W remain a feed mill?"
Local auctioneer Chris Wilson and coordinating agent Logan Sandusky say, "the 2.25 Acre, m/l, site near Lindsey Wilson College and Fairground Street offers a location with enough acreage for many other types of business or other applications. The proximity to the college alone could make the property highly desirable for other uses, and that much acreage in one contiguous parcel is hard to find in town. This is a well-known established business and versatile location. We are sure that whoever has the winning bid Tuesday will find this property to be a great future investment".
All bidding is taking place in an online-only absolute auction that ends this coming Tuesday, November 1, 2022. The real estate auction ends around 6pmCT, and the equipment ends around 7pmCT.
Wilson stated, "With M & W's long history, we wanted to give this a good chance to remain as a feed mill so we are ending the bidding on the real estate first so whoever wins the bid will also have a chance to buy the equipment they want".
