Our History

Nestled in the scenic farm country of County Kilkenny in South-East Ireland, Connolly's RED MILLS has been the home of the Connolly family business since 1908. RED MILLS is quite literally the feed of champions, and is trusted by leading racehorse owners and trainers worldwide.

Today, we are one of the most trusted global names within the areas of high performance horse feed, pet food and agri products. Our brand is known and trusted from the UK and Ireland to Continental Europe, the USA, Japan and elsewhere in the Far East. But despite our global footprint, we’re still a company that has family values at our very heart. After five generations, the founding family is still at the helm – and making sure that while we’re big enough to supply a world market, we’re very much in touch with core values.
