Orchards Feed Mill ...
The Orchards Feed Mill (Store), located in Orchards, Washington, is located on the corner of NE Covington Road and Rosewood Avenue, in T2N R2E. It is owned by Loren Carlson, who purchased the business in 1989.

"Est. 1889" is also posted on the Orchard Feed's new building. According to Vancouver's The Columbian (September 19, 2013), the Orchards Feed Mill was built in 1889.

"The company recently opened a 22,000-square-foot store next door to its 124-year-old feed mill."

However, according to D. W. Freece, in his 1984 Masters dissertation, "A history of the street railway systems of Vancouver, Washington, 1889-1926" (Portland State University), the Orchards Feed Mill was built in the early 1900s. It was located along the tracks of the Vancouver - Orchards - Sifton electric streetcar line.

"In Orchards the feed store that was built alongside the railway tracks still stands ...

In 2013 a new 22,000-foot store opened north of the original building.
