Wheat Market Expansion in Culpeper, VA

Ardent Mills here in Culpeper intends to buy soft red wheat this growing season and seeks to alert growers of their interest - they need 30,000 acres.

In the past this Cargill mill used only hard red wheat.  Recent upgrades to storage and truck unloading facilitate this change, interested growers will want to attend.
