What Types of Grains Can I Buy From a Wholesaler?
Looking to stock your business? Do you need fresh cereals for your grocery store? Are you a baker or chef who needs fresh ingredients? Check out grain wholesalers for your needs. They typically sell cornmeal, couscous, rye grain, yellow popping corn and honey granola. You can also choose from thick rolled oats, long grain brown rice, basmati, wheat bran and wheat germ.
How Are the Grains Stored Until They Reach Me?
Grains are dried and stored in temperature controlled silos and warehouses until ready for distribution. They are sorted in mills on conveyors where they undergo several preparation processes, such as cleaning and drying. Some grains are destined for brewing at a brewery, while others are destined for cereal boxes or loaves of bread. In general, grain is sold by weight or volume.
Where Do You Get the Grain?
Area farmers typically supply the grain that wholesale dealers sell. During planting and harvesting time, farmers often contract with wholesaler dealers who agree to sell the grain that the farmers produce. With some farmers tending up to 1,500 acres of land, some of which is owned and overseen by large corporations, they must hire workers to harvest the wheat and other grains.
