Our Story

Ever wonder about the back story of the people behind the counter, works in the warehouse or delivering your feed from Pittsboro Feed? Meet the David & Christine and their family who started Pittsboro Feed & Pittsboro Pet Supply.

Hello friends & Welcome to Pittsboro Feed

We're so happy you made it to our website and found interest in getting to know us a little better. Well, we are the Miller family and we are so blessed to be part of agriculture our entire lives. From growing up on farms, our first jobs of working in a feed store or driving semi-trucks with feed in them to now owning our own store. Both David & Christine purchased their first store in 1992 in a little town called Highland, Michigan called Highland Feed & Water. We owned & operated and our children grew up that store until November of 200 (our family friends still own that store to this day).

As you may know, it gets a little chilly in Michigan throughout the winter months so we decided to pack up and move to Pittsboro, North Carolina where we purchased another small store called Pittsboro Farm & Garden. Over the next 10 years, we outgrew that little store and decided to open a secondary store right across the street called Pittsboro Pet Supply in December of 2015.

Meet the Miller Family

Having the three kids growing up in the store has been so much fun. Watching them grow up in the feed stores by riding their bicycles, helping our customers and learning many different lessons is why we do this. Our family has grown from the three kids to now a son/brother-in-law and a grandson (the Holland's).

Meet the owner, David Miller

David has always worked in the world of agriculture. ALWAYS. He started at the very young age of working on his grandparents farm. Grandpa Geil was always boasting of his extreme hay stacking skills. (No favoritism there). He worked late evening hours after his regular job plowing fields preparing them for planting. The majority of his time was spent at Rochester Elevator which he started at the age of 18. It was at that job that Lawrence Smith kindly suggested that he should “spread his wings” and go out on his own. With much support and guidance from Lawrence that is what they did. Highland Feed was purchased in 1992. After many Michigan winters Christine and David decided to move south, Pittsboro Feed was purchased in 2005. Fun fact about David, he has never ever been interviewed for a job, and if you come in for a visit, ask him about his hats.

Meet the owner, Christine Miller

Christine has been in love with agriculture since the age of 8. One would think that it is not possible for one to know at that age, but she would kindly disagree. Christine’s father took her to their local “feed store” when she was just a young girl to get rabbit pellets for her pet bunny. The smell, the environment, and the lifestyle is one she never forgot. Fast forward to her desire to work in the agricultural industry, times were different back then. She ended up graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in Elevator and Farm Supply. During her college internship at Oxford Cooperative Elevator she met David, and knew from day one that he was the one. After getting married they decided to purchase Highland Feed in Michigan in 1992.Tired of the cold Michigan winters they decided to move south but continue what they loved. Pittsboro Feed was purchased in 2005, and continues to thrive with the help of their now grown children and the best staff around.

Meet Josh Miller

When Josh was one-month old, David & Christine bought their first farm supply store. His entire life has been in the industry; from riding my bicycle around the store when he was young, to now helping people find the correct nutritional plan for their animals to perform their best!

Outside of work, he likes to try new, local restaurants (I'm a sucker for a good burger), hang out with friends & family, fly drones and play with his two dogs (pictured below)!

Meet Stella

I was born in January of 2015 and came from Farm Friends Rescue in Chatham County, North Carolina. I am a lab, cattle dog mix. I love to come out and visit everyone's farm. Some of my favorite memories include driving across the country to the Hoover Dam and visiting the North Carolina mountains with my dad.

You can find me hanging around Josh, sun-bathing in the yard or with anyone that has food. I love all the treats!

Meet Nova

I was born in September of 2021 to a friend in Pittsboro and I was the last of the litter to be adopted. I may be a tiny Australian cattle dog (blue heeler), but I love to play. I can keep going with the best of them and jump about six feet high.

I also love the water, hanging around Josh, bothering my sister and definitely finding the person who has the treats!
