The Conqueror Flour Mill building has been a landmark in Cootamundra for more than 100 years.
Patrick Scott and Michael Mullaly, who lived in the mill house across the road, established the first mill on the site in 1875.
In 1890, a group of local grain producers and businessmen created a new business named the Cootamundra Co-operative Milling Company, which refitted the mill at a cost of more than £10,000.
David Stratton, an enterprising Irishman who had previously operated flourmills in Bendigo, Ballarat and Echuca, purchased the business three years later.
In 1914, the original mill was replaced with the current four-storey red brick building featuring the Conqueror Flour and Stratton and Sons logos.
Other improvements over the years included a rice mill (1941), a stockfeed mill (1943) and a rolled oats mill and two concrete silos (1952).
The mill was operated by three generations of the Stratton family until it was sold to Clifford Love & Co, the then manufacturers of Uncle Toby’s Oats, in 1966.
M.C. Croker Pty Ltd, a family-owned grain marketing business, purchased the complex in 1984 and expanded its storage operations to include cereals, oilseeds and pulses.
Since then, the complex has been significantly redeveloped to include a lupin de-hulling plant (1994), a palletisation plant (2001) and a new silo complex (2004).
In 2006, the mill was renamed Conqueror Milling Company and commenced trading as a stand-alone business division of Croker Grain.
