organic chicken feed

 

Since 2019, Mile Four has set out to create the highest quality organic chicken feed in the world. As our 100% family owned company has grown, the mission has remained the same. We continue to use premium Organic, Non-GMO grains grown on local US family farms. We hope you enjoy Mile Four as much as we enjoy making it.

Luke, Mile Four's owner, grew up four miles (hence the name) west of a little town in Minnesota on a 5th generation family farm that has been growing grains in the heartland since the 1800's. Like a classic tale, his older brother took over the family farm & he had to find his own path. With Mile Four he was able to pair his family farming roots with his ecommerce background.

Founder & CEO

Luke

Luke paired his past experiences on his family's farm (yeah rocking picking!) with this e-commerce experience to start Mile Four. His family's love for raising chickens as pets & for eggs is the main reason Mile Four exists. When he’s not running Mile Four, he loves to travel (42 countries visited), run (begrudgingly) & has delusions of running a marathon someday.

Humblebrag: Once swam in the Atlantic & Pacific Ocean on the same day.

Owner

Reelika

Reelika is Mile Four's media whizz! She runs pretty much everything that involves advertising & strategy. Reelika grew up next to a chicken farm in Estonia, & her love for chickens never left her when she moved to the US! When she’s not working, she does CrossFit, volunteers with a pet rescue, plays wih her dog Franky, cooks *delicious* meals, & travels.


Humblebrag: She grew up in Estonia & was one of the 2 million people to hold hands in the Baltic Link that helped gain independence for Estonia.

COO

Wayne

Wayne runs operations for Mile Four—making sure our feed is fresh each week & ensuring that all packages ship daily. When he's not pushing around pallets of feed, or answering your calls & emails, he's watching college hoops (Rock Chalk Jayhawk), fine tuning his amazing mustache, and working under his Jeep(s).

Humblebrag: He traveled to 43 States & 12 Countries with a Rock'n'Roll band in his 20s.

Warehouse Associate

John

John, Luke's younger brother, does "whatever helps the team" in the warehouse. He grew up with chickens as well. The flock thinned out a bit by the time he was old enough to help raise them, but he loves the process & the visible transformation between life stages. When he's not stamping bags and lifting the heavy stuff, he's attending med school.

Humblebrag: He can name any John Mayer song within 3 seconds after pressing play.

Graphic Designer

Erwin

Erwin generates Mile Four's logos, graphics, & all our lovely design work. He has an affinity for chickens & has been around them his whole life. When he's not crushing Adobe Creative Suite into a fine dust, he finds time for various creative endeavors & plays percussion in multiple bands.

Humblebrag: He was crowned "King of Kicks" for his football boot designs for the UEFA Champions League 2018-2019 tournament.

Operations

Will

Will is our operations extraordinare. From bagging & boxing orders to chasing down the UPS guy for 'JUST ONE MORE BOX TODAY' he is the man & gets things done. When not working or bending elbows at the local watering hole he's an avid traveler (Ireland is next!), & spends time with his family.

Humblebrag: Can spin a basketball on one finger on both hands at the same time.

Guard Dog

Franky

Franky, a good boy, is our warehouse guard dog... when he's not too busy being adorable. He's a master of greeting all visitors (or anyone that walks by) with maximum excitement. Almost a year old, his days are spent napping & playing fetch with our team when they need a break.

Humblebrag: Rescue dog from SafeHands rescue via Kentucky to Minnesota & a true mutt.
