The AFC Grain Division, as it is known today, started out many years ago as AFC Marketing Service. This company was set up to purchase and market grain and soybeans from member cooperatives that ran local elevators. This arrangement lasted for many years and continues to have a few members who operate this way today. Over the years, as farms got larger and trucks got bigger, many farmers bypassed the local elevators and took their grain to river terminals and end-user facilities. AFC Grain recognized this trend early on and made adjustments that would position them for the future. We closed many of our small satellite elevators and acquired more river terminals with larger capacities and unload speeds. AFC Grain has also built some state-of-the-art facilities. Today, AFC Grain is poised to handle the needs of the large farmers and small grain companies alike. We offer a variety of marketing alternatives and pride our business relationships on honesty and integrity. Our origination footprint has evolved to include much of the Southeastern United States. We also handle a variety of feed ingredients at several locations that serve our member-owners and other independents. With the ever-changing trends in the grain industry, AFC has positioned itself to be successful in order to serve the needs of its customers for many years to come.
