Crop storage forms a major part of our business, and you may be pleased to hear that we have crop storage available for independent farmers and grain merchants for harvest 2019 at our 82,000-tonne facility at Scotland Farm, Dry Drayton just outside Cambridge.
Capable of managing over 5,000 tonnes of incoming crop a day during harvest and the capacity to dry 1,200 tonnes per day and clean 480 tonnes per day, our facility includes high-tech monitoring in each store that cools whilst aerating and maintaining temperatures at less than 5°C.
We also have a weighbridge and sampling services that enable us to process a lorry in nine minutes and load out up to 180 tonnes per hour.
And there’s more.
We were recently awarded coveted organic status by official UK certifying body, OF & G Organic. This means that we’re now able to meet the increasing demand for organic and even vegan farming production.
Additionally, we offer a collection, cleaning and delivery service for out of spec crops through our Grain Hospital, which uses state of the art cleaning equipment to provide full colour and size sorting, and fine cleaning. This means that we’re able to help with admix and ergot removal, bushel weight improvement; pea colour sorting; premium enhancement; preparation of commodities; and cleaning all combinable crops.
This flexible storage solution can be rented annually. Independent farmers can use this storage to sell their crop to whomever they wish, whilst grain merchants can have their grain delivered from all their farms and stored in one place.
So, if you haven’t got crop storage in place for this harvest and want to learn more about our offering, please give us a call on 01954 210211 option 3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
