Shawn is the oldest of 3 boys raised on a hog/cash crop farm near Drayton Ontario. Bridget the youngest of 6 children raised on a Dairy Farm south of Harriston Ontario. Both of us are dedicated and interested in a farming future. We married in 2000 and settled in Arthur Ontario. With a growing cash crop operation and a growing family it was soon time to take the next step.
With our first son 1 year old in 2003 construction began. Our initial decision to build was to accommodate our own crops, but with the buzz of construction, our neighbors soon showed interest in delivery. Once construction was complete we partnered with Palmerston Grain and are now one of 3 satellite receiving facilities and all grain marketing is done through Palmerston Grain. In 2014 Palmerston Grain sold out to south West Ag who then took over operations.
We were blessed to have such loyal neighbors, the bins began to multiply as did our kids!
Our first daughter arrived 2004, second son 2006 and lastly another daughter 2008, our family was complete and showing intense excitement to farm!
Undergoing a sizeable expansion in 2012 with high speed receiving ability and a total capacity of 1,814,000 bu we are equipped to handle all your commodity needs as fast and as efficient as possible. Surprisingly enough we are very fortunate after nine years in the grain elevator business to still be drawing new customers to our location. We draw customers from as far as Dundalk ON, across to Orangeville ON and down to Drayton ON.
