My Great-Great Grandfather, George Brown, purchased a water powered grist mill that was built in 1843 (it's featured in the illustration above and protected as a national historic landmark that still stands today). He used mill stones to grind the grains to produce farm animal feed and flour from the wheat he grew on his farm.

Company Profile Request update info.

Franklin Brown, one of George’s sons, joined his father in the business that he directed until he retired in 1920. As our country was celebrating the dawn of the 20th century, Brown’s business started on its path of expansion and growth with the addition of Franklin Brown’s four sons, the third generation, into the family business. The four sons formed a partnership called F.M. Brown’s Sons that was later incorporated in 1948. Each son successfully established separate but supporting divisions of F.M. Brown’s including a large animal food division in Birdsboro, PA; the flour division in Sinking Spring, PA which later moved into a new plant in Fleetwood, PA; a working farm in Douglassville, PA and a fuel oil and coal division in Reading, PA. Later, their sons, the fourth generation of Brown’s, entered the corporation. In 1960, Harvey Brown, my Father and a member of the fourth generation of F.M. Brown’s, moved his family to Sinking Spring, PA and began selling large animal foods that were produced by his brother in Birdsboro, PA. Harvey enjoyed a thriving business and had many trucks lined up waiting to be loaded with feed for their farm animals.
