More Construction?! You told us, and we listened!

That’s right, Bladenboro Mill is at it again.  Not only have we improved your unloading time by adding a new grain pit, we’re adding a second outbound scale!  Now we’ll be able to receive your grain and get you back to the field faster than ever.

We’re currently booking new crop wheat and new crop corn.  Ask us about our Clarkton/Bladenboro marketing program for those who might farm close to our Clarkton facility on Baldwin Road.    Call Robbie Montgomery 910-260-1633

We can’t wait to show off the new additions at the mill, call us today to book your grain!     See you at harvest!

Cover your “Basis”

More and more farmers are taking advantage of our Basis only contract offer.  At any time between now and delivery of your crop, you can lock the Basis portion of your total price per bushel (Basis + Futures = Total Price per bushel).

Futures prices fluctuate for many reasons - weather, speculation, supply/demand, etc.  Basis contracts allow you to harvest and deliver your crop, and wait to price the futures when you are ready.   You set the bushels and delivery period, we lock in the basis, you deliver the grain, and then call us when you’re ready to price the futures – you have 1 year to price.

Call us today to learn more about this offer.

MBgrain updates mills, unloading processes. Grain delivery tips too.

Brown would like to thank all the farmers and distributors for trusting us with their continuous business.  We appreciate it and continuously strive to exceed your expectations.  Click on the link to learn more about what changes we've made at our mills and tips on how you can have a better experience at our delivery locations --  MBGRAIN
