Our Story

Began in Pigeon, Michigan...

Active Feed is a family owned business in their third-generation. During the mid-1950's, Joe Maust Sr., who originally owned a propane business, began to explore feed production and ultimately founded Active Feed Company in 1961. The company began by serving poultry producers, selling poultry feed and egg-laying systems under the first-generation. As of the third-generation, the business has expanded to sell dairy, beef and swine feeds as well, producing over 300 tons of feed per day. 



 Based out of the village of Pigeon in Huron County, Active Feed is a proud part of the "Thumb" community and the great State of Michigan. The company has served the state's farmers, wholesalers and grocery stores for decades, and will continue to do so for generations to come.
