The business assets for sale include: Accounts receivable, inventory, vehicles, grain bins and tanks, equipment, customer, farmer and supplier arrangements, and all intangible assets- (tradenames, technical “know-how”, personal and corporate goodwill).  These assets should support substantial acquisition-financing.  

The Company's grain storage facilities are available for lease or purchase.   The Owners are committed to assist with a smooth transition and all key employees are expected to remain.
