1: Grain Receiving and Storage
is received at our mill by both truck
and rail delivery year round with the July wheat harvest
being our busiest. The majority of the wheat comes from the eastern shore
of southern New Jersey, Delaware and
Maryland. The remaining wheat comes locally from eastern
Pennsylvania. Each incoming load of wheat, both by truck
and rail, is individually sampled
and quality tested for moisture, test weight, foreign
material, insect infestation and sprout damage. Any
load not meeting our quality standards is immediately
testing is completed and the quality is acceptable, the
wheat is then unloaded in one of our four grain unloading
pits. During harvest time any wet wheat (moisture
exceeding 13.5%) is transferred to our continuous flow gas
drier where it is dried to less than 13.5% moisture for long
is then transferred to our 100' Concrete Silos where it is
fumigated and then cooled to maintain quality while in
long term storage.
