In the 1970's William Millier logged his forested land to send the logs out to be milled to make his hay wagons. Shortly after he started milling the logs himself on a portable band-saw. The production of hay wagons occurred on the farm and as interests grew, they expanded. The addition of a single cut band-saw and moving the equipment to the other side of the road, Bill began producing 60,000 board feet a week.
With the help of his son Andrew Millier and the addition of the new double cut band-saw in 2015 production has increased the average to 100,000 board feet per week. With a soon to be addition of the new re-saw, production should be over 125,000 board feet a week. All of the byproducts from the production of lumber; sawdust, woodchips and bark mulch have many different uses and eliminates the idea of "waste" in the production system.
