A wooden grain elevator in Dufresne, on the CNR Sprague Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Tache, was formerly operated by the Manitoba Pool Elevators and its successor Agricore. Closed in November 2000, the elevator was purchased by a group of four local farmers and has been used for private grain storage since 2001.
