Site Storage


Drying both safely and quickly is accomplished by the use of a Bryce-Baker and a Cimbria dryer with a capacity of 5% moisture reduction at 35mt per hour for feed cereals.
Working in harmony with the plant is a modern state of the art fully equipped TASCC approved Laboratory and weighbridge. All grain movement, both intake and outload, is vacuum spear sampled and fully analysed with samples kept for safe keeping in accordance with TASSC guidelines. The analytical equipment is checked continually as part of a testing ring network to ensure accuracy and consistency.
Harvest intake is currently handled by the use of 2 High Capacity Double intake pits with a resultant combined throughput of 1,000 mt/hr giving a potential to intake 4,500 mt per day to cope with peak harvest demands of the current membership.

Woldgrain Storage is TASCC registered and fully approved, alongside this we are also Coors/Vendor Assured for malting barley.


The currently available Physical Storage has progressively grown over the years to meet the demands of the growing membership which currently stands at 57,000 tonnes. The site is comprised of an array of varying sized silo storage which results in high segregation level in relation to the overall capacity. Such storage capability means we are able to meet the demands of strict levels of quality separation required by the memberships marketing partners. All Silos are fully ventilated and temperature monitored to ensured quality is preserved during long term storage. The member can be confident that the maximum potential return from his harvest is maintained by the store up to the point of marketing.

Storage Benefits

Woldgrain’s focus is to provide a cost effective storage option to the traditional on-farm based storage, whilst maximising the financial potential of all members arable crop production. Owned by the members and operated for the members gain and benefit.

The store is ready and able to keep pace with your harvest requirements which means you are in control of the critical “When to Harvest“ decision, with positive gains in the areas of both labour and crop quality issues. Improvements from Project Valiant ensure that all your crop will be cleaned, sorted, blended and graded beyond the capability of even the most comprehensive on farm setup.


Even in a extreme harvest the store has the capability to maximise the financial return on your crop. Long term storage presents opportunities by allowing you to choose the optimum time to go to market with your crop

Our Storage presents a realistic option to farmers whose own facilities may have outlived their natural lifespan, and are no longer cost effective to rebuild. Others may simple have outgrown their storage or lack the segregation to keep future marketing opportunities.

Better segregation of crops, therefore a reduced risk of admixture & contamination.
Handle and store a wide range of crops increasing your marketing opportunities.
Vendor assured preferred supplier status.
Ability to cope with extreme harvest conditions with high capacity intake systems.
A good long term and tax efficient Investment.

<p style=”color: #FFCC00″>Chris Dowse of Sutton Estates, Vice Chairman and a member of Woldgrain Storage Ltd speaks about his experience trying to build grain storage on his farm.</p>
<p style=”color: #00693c”>“Planners are becoming harder to please and it is becoming increasingly difficult to get planning permission. I thought it would be cheaper to run but I don’t think you can ever work out the real cost, I estimated building a storage system from scratch before running it would cost <span style=”font-weight: bold”>£170-£180 per tonne.”</span></p>

<p><span class=”textbox” style=”color: #FFCC00″>Richard Milligan-Manby of Manby Farms, the Chairman and a member of Woldgrain Storage Ltd explains why he decided not to renovate existing buildings on his farm into grain storage facilities.</span></p>
<p class=”textbox” style=”color: #00693c”>“Using central storage is buying into a vision of the next 20 years. The supply chain is changing and becoming more sophisticated and regulated and will demand that grain comes from a central store like Woldgrain Storage. Before committing to this investment we reviewed the options of converting modern cattle buildings into on floor bulk drying. This basic storage was priced at <span style=”font-weight: bold”>£125/t.</span> The Woldgrain investment will be far better value and will increase our marketing opportunities as we will have access to high specification facilities which will allow us to add value to our end product.”</p>
