​​Our History

When the late Arthur Ventura opened Ventura Grain in 1924 it was to make and sell feed to dairy and chicken farmers, as well as other regular folk who kept animals in their backyards either for food or labor.  The original building at 148 Longmeadow Road in Taunton, MA was a two-stall garage. Over the years, however,  the building grew to include a 95-foot elevator and overhead bins.   Now, in 2018, with family still behind the show and now some new ownership,  we still continue to manufacture and  sell our own brand of feed "Everyday Quality Feeds"  to animal owners on a large and small scale.  

Feed Mill

Our feed mill in Taunton, MA produces animal feed mixtures 6 days a week for chickens, meat birds, horses, game birds, rabbits, llamas, goats, cows, sheep, guinea pigs, emu and much more.  Raw ingredients are shipped into our production facility via rail or truck on a daily basis.  The integrity of our formulas is very important to us and is never compromised due to cost or availability.   Our feed mixtures are shipped to local farms in our own bulk trucks and blown into silos.  Bagged grain is also available for pick-up at our retail store in 50lb bags.
