Mortimers specialise in purchasing commodities direct from farm and supply local feed and flour mills.
We have excellent relationships with local and national consumers and have access to export facilities, the pet food industry as well as national compounders and millers.
Grain can be collected from farm, or can be delivered for storage and drying. A well equipped laboratory ensures that all commodities can be tested and graded quickly and effectively.
Forward Contracts are available for most commodities. We trade Assured as well as Non-Assured grain. Collection from the farm is organised from one of our wagons or carefully chosen outside hauliers. A fixed wheel 20 tonner is available where necessary.
Feed Wheat / Barley
We buy both feed wheat and barley as grown and can also offer drying facilities or price reductions where necessary on damp grain. We offer forward contracts or spot movement to suit farmers needs including the flexibility of harvest movement.
We supply malting barley on contract or open market throughout the year to several maltings within the local area. We offer a range of contracts including Minimum Premium Based Contracts, which allow the farmer to fix the base feed price of his contract and agree the premium once the crop has been safely harvested or alternatively a fixed price contract.
Mortimers have historic strong trading relationships with both local and national flour millers within the UK. Mortimers offer Farmer Buy Back Contracts on Group 1 and 2 milling wheats. We also specialize in both hard and soft biscuit wheat grades.
