Quality small grains

for the malting and distilling industries

We are excited about the growth of the malting and distilling industries in our region.

To meet the needs of the market, we plant and grow rye. These products are typically marketed in large, bulk sacks weighing 2,000 lb. As we cater to the needs of this expanding market we are adapting to produce a desirable, quality product.

Our place in the process from “farm to bottle”

Providing high quality grains that allow distillers and brewers to produce high quality products is our goal! We start by choosing sound proven rye varieties before preparing the seed bed to create the best possible conditions for germination. We monitor for pest and diseases throughout the growing and storing process. When harvested, the rye residue is tilled back into the soil to help replenish nutrients. The harvested rye is placed in a bin and dried to a level that allows for long-term storage.

Our drying process employs natural temperatures using grain moisture equilibrium as a guide. When necessary, ultra-low temperature heaters are used to avoid stifling the germination potential of the grain.

All our rye is cleaned using a 4-screen cleaner prior to bagging and is shipped in one ton super sack bags.

Our capabilities

What do we bring to the table? We can properly dry the grains, store the grains, thoroughly clean the grains and protect the grains from insects until you’re ready for delivery. In this way, you do not have to tie up your space with bulk sacks of grain and risk insect infestation.

We work hard to provide you a high-quality product. If you’re interested in any amount of rye, please contact us.

Angus beef

in Culpeper County, Virginia

In addition to growing rye, Fairview Cattle & Grain has a cow-calf operation of primarily Angus beef cattle. Our herd originates from purebred stock and has been 43 years in the making!

The cattle are raised on grass pastures and finished with a prepared feed ration consisting of grain and hay from locally grown crops. Our animals are not routinely given antibiotics, and we never use growth hormones. In the rare case that an animal needs an antibiotic, they are removed from our custom meat program.

Quantities are limited. If you’re interested, contact us today.
