Our Story

Founded In Community

Founded in 1950, Miller Farms is a fourth-generation, community-driven business that believes Everyone Is Family. With humble beginnings selling eggs door to door, Earl and Margaret Miller prided themselves on listening to the needs of their neighbors and making time to help others.

The tradition lives on at our landmark location in Avon, Connecticut and beyond with our all-natural pet food brand, Oma's Pride. As active members of the community, Miller Farms is a member of the Avon Chamber of Commerce, Avon-Canton Rotary, Avon Historical Society, and Connecticut Business & Industry Association. 

Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday. Family. Friends. Food comas. And in the middle of it all...turkey! For over 70 years, we've brought people together with our signature Thanksgiving turkeys. Yes, over a million people have enjoyed a Miller Farms turkey since the 1950s. 

In 2020, because of COVID-19 uncertainty, we had to pivot and move the celebration and store online, while launching a new tradition called the Thankful Turkey, partnering with other multi generational family farms to source the best turkeys in the country. 

Since 2020, we've partnered with Connecticut Foodshare & Feeding America to help alleviate the pressures of food insecurity. This Thanksgiving season, we aim to to feed 100,00 people in need with every purchase & donation made.
