In 1972 Lester Rovey started Rovey Seed Company, Inc. along with three of his sons Glenn, Leonard, and Stanley in Farmersville, IL. The company initially cleaned public soybean varieties for farmers. One year, though, Lester started growing white corn on his farm and the white corn and food grade grain sales quickly became the primary focus of the operation. Today we contract and process white, yellow, and blue corn and food grade soybeans.
Over the years Rovey Seed Company has become a trusted source of high quality food grains and ingredients. We are continually investing in the latest cleaning technology and equipment to improve our products and improve our efficiencies. In 2009, Rovey Specialty Grains, LLC was formed when we purchased a cleaning facility serviced by the railroad in Inland, Nebraska.
This new facility allowed us to offer our grain products further west. We now are able to cost effectively ship throughout the entire US and Canada and overseas. Also, our Nebraska production is produced under irrigation which ensures our customers a steady supply of quality grain products.
Today the owners still grow food grade corn and soybeans on their own farms. We also offer competitive grower contracts for producers who are looking to add to their bottom line.
