Poole Milling/Miles Farm - Poole, KY

Somewhere in the rolling hills of northwestern Kentucky there is a place where the grass is green, the water is crisp and the land is healthy. This is the land watched over by the Poole Milling Co./Miles Farm Supply, Inc. Their new fertilizer plant is the largest business in Poole and it is a center for economic activity.

If the growers aren’t buying fertilizer from the plant, then locals are stocking up on dog food at the mill across the street. Dewayne Hunter is the manager of this thriving business and does everything he can to show his community members that he cares about them and about the land.

A key feature of the Poole facility is the dry fertilizer handling facility. The blender is under roof and the runoff can be collected and spread in the field.
