Leroy M. Sensenig was born July 25th, 1909, and grew up on a small farm near Blue Ball in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.  He was one of ten children, and worked on several different farms as hired help.  At the age of 19, he began working at Trupe's Feed Mill, near Terre Hill. In 1936, a friend of Leroy's father asked Leroy to manage a small mill he owned.  After 9 years of experience managing a mill, Leroy decided to buy his own mill and purchased the Hinkletown Feed Mill from Earl Sauder in 1945 and "Sensenig's Feed Mill" began. In 1959, Leroy's son, Ken, began working at the feed mill after working on several farms as a boy.  In 1961, Leroy's interest transitioned to restoring an old gristmill near Red Run Campground.  Ken took over management at the mill at Hinkletown, and in 1969 became part of the newly formed Leroy M. Sensenig Inc.  One year later, Martin's Feed Mill in Ephrata was purchased to assist with the


growth at the Hinkletown Mill. A few years later, Ken's sons began working in the business with Mike in 1979, Scott in 1984, and Karl in 1987.  In 1985, Sensenig's Feed Mill moved once again to New Holland, purchasing the Earl Sauder Feed Mill, which is where the mill is located today. Ken retired in 2003, at which point Mike, Scott, and Karl took over and continued to grow Sensenig's Feed Mill.  Today, Mike and his sons, Kyle and Kurt, continue to lead the feed mill "Great Grandpa Leroy" started back in 1945.
