History of The Old Mill

The Schomberg Feed Mill

Opening as a working feed mill in 1884, connected by rail network to the rest of Canada, The Schomberg Feed Mill was the Main Street supply store servicing farmers in the surrounding countryside. The Schomberg Feed Mill, now home to The Scruffy Duck Restaurant, still stands on its original footprint. The feed mills original structure is still centrally located in the town of Schomberg, representing a connection between the past and present and always a favourite place for King Township residentsand tourists to visit.

1884- Mill opens

Built in 1884 by Anderson Tegart, The Old Schomberg Feed Mill originally operated until 1927 when the lower cost of trucking straight to market became more advantageous. Since it’s closing, it has been home to many shops and restaurants, a few of which are still open to this day.

Late 1980’s –

Sheena’s Kitchen

For over 25 years Sheena’s Kitchen was the spot in Schomberg to drink tea and savour simple lunches. A place to sit and chat with friends over Sheena Henderson’s famous Lemon Cake, quiches and hearty stews. Situated within the original Schomberg Feed Mill building, the tea room closed after Sheena’s retirement, her lemon cake still a secret recipe.

In 2008, The Scruffy Duck officially opened it’s doors in Schomberg. Led by owners Janet Hill and brother Paul, Councillor Bill Cober and former King Township Mayor Margaret Black were in attendance for the grand opening. The Scruffy Duck continues to serve great food and offer unique live events for everyone to enjoy. We hope to see you soon!
