HUGHES FARMS ADDS BARLEY STORAGE
Nestled in the heart of picturesque Skagit Valley in
Mount Vernon, Washington, U.S., Hughes Farms was
in need of storage for barley and other grains.
This fourth-generation farm turned to SCAFCO
Grain Systems' dealer Scott Rock of Rock Steel
Structures, based in Moses Lake, Washington, U.S.
The top-of-the-line storage and handling equipment
was constructed within a matter of months. SCAFCO
supplied four 1,146-tonne bins, 250 tph galvanized
chain conveyors for easy loading and unloading, and a
galvanized catwalk for safety.
As a large-scale farm with many rotating crops,
Hughes Farm will take full advantage of their
SCAFCO bins' versatility to store not only barley, but
various other types of grain as well.
The farm focuses on fresh market crops such as
a variety of potatoes and broccoli, and rotates with
wheat, barley, corn and seed crop.
