Building Our Community
The Finley Farmers Grain & Elevator Company has a couple of big additions coming up in the community! They have not only had a business merger with Farmers Elevator of Cooperstown effective September 1. 2016, they are building, building, building!
First, there is a new truck receiving system coming up on the south side of Finley. It will include a two-story probe building and an inbound truck scale. Trucks will be probed, graded, and weighed south of town (next to Archer bin site) and be dispatched to various dumping locations in town. The outbound scale will be placed north of the north elevator. Second, you will notice a locomotive shed in town to house the second locomotive the Finley Farmers Grain & Elevator Company acquired.
Third, and the largest of these projects are the construction of the new grain load out facility where the old fertilizer plant was located. The project began in August of 2016 and has an estimated completion date of September 2017. This big project will bring efficiency and many benefits to the elevator, farmers, and the community. Great projects that only make Finley better!
