Starting immediately, and continuing through August, FCE will not be taking any more deliveries of grain at our Echo location. Echo is undergoing a $6 Million reconstruction project that will add a new bin, bulkweigher, pits, overheads and conveyers. This is going to be a great addition to FCE and we are looking forward to dumping grain there again this Fall.

 

If you have questions about this project, grain deliveries or on the farm pickup, please reach out. Thank you!
