History:
I can’t find any history or information on this site however apparently it is believed to have been built in the 1900s and then it was updated in later years. Its purpose was to dry grain for the local main farm. A new larger and modern grain dryer was built a few miles away and the farm went downhill. It has apparently been abandoned for 20 years!

Grain farmers grow grains such as corn, wheat, rye, and others, including grain sorghums. Farmers generally specialize in two or three types of grain. ... Grain farms range in size from 375 acres to more than fifteen hundred acres. Grain farmers grow crops used for animal feed or as food for people.

Visited with @Seany Explores :p
I’ve had this pin for a year now and I’ve never got round to going as it’s rather inland and quite a distance from me. Anyways we hit up this place as we was in the area... it was way better than we thought. I had seen very little images of this place about a year ago so the explore was a surprise in a way. We literally parked outside the farm... this is what is so lovely about these out of the way explores is that you can park on the site and it not cause any attention at all.... access was obviously very easy as there was no security or fence or boards up everything is just wide open.

The grain silos were really cool and was fun to photograph! In most silos, gravity causes grain to flow from the top of the silo and out through an opening at the bottom near the center. At that opening, a machine called an auger transports the grain to a vehicle or another grain storage facility. As grain flows through the auger, it forms a funnel shape at the top of the silo. If workers stand at that location, flowing grain can pull them into the mix, causing injury or loss of life. Concrete stave silos, a type of tower silo, usually use a slightly different unloading method. Augers at the silo's top blow grain toward the structure's center and then out through doors on the silo's side.

To my surprise that the farmhouse was actually quite a decent add to the explore. An abandoned farm isn’t one to tickle my pickle when exploring however this form was relatively interesting to me.... The farmhouse was empty and basically it up however I liked the fireplace. The place is quite ripped out and there isn’t really much to look at however it was like I said a nice add-on so I’m not complaining.

Nonetheless an interesting place! :thumb

Great shots.. Its a shame the base of the Silos were in too poor condition to stand inside and photograph for long..
Great write up, you've obviously been reading up on the functionally of grain farms!
