Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in Arden, on the CPR Minnedosa Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne, was formerly operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators. After a period of intensive cleaning, it reopened in January 2003 as an organic commodity processing facility. It operated for a short time then the elevator sat vacant for a few years before being purchased by the Rolling Acres Hutterite Colony and used for its private grain storage.
