Petersen Farms (also known as Anoka Independent Grain & Feed) is one of the oldest family run businesses in the Anoka area.
Ernest Petersen began the family farm in 1948, specializing in feed and grain. What began as a simple elevator eventually grew into silos which lead to metal grain bins in the 60s. The mill mainly produced grain for farm animals, but also carried products for pet food as well.
Eventually, Anoka County began developing the farm lands into suburbs and the Anoka Independent Feed and Grain’s focus shifted from animal feed to specialized feed such as food for hobby farms, pet food and wild bird food.
The farm has now been passed down through 3 generations with numerous family members working at the farm. The family has loved hunting on the land and enjoying the peaceful nature throughout their time there.
Anoka Independent Grain and Feed has been a family owned business for three generations, and has continued to service the community since 1948 in downtown Anoka. Kevin Petersen currently leads the team - providing a huge variety of feed for wild birds, horses, dogs, cats, poultry, exotics, and deer.
