storage



To achieve the optimum quality and yield of a crop, it is critical for farmers to cut their crops when they are ready. Any delay in harvesting can severely reduce income and removing any obstacle to completing harvest is essential.

Unfortunately, harvest time doesn’t always coincide with the best weather conditions or when consumers can take the product and farmers do not always have the facilities to move and store their grain. Dewing Grain provides the best service available to the local farming community and to the expected guaranteed quality that end users demand. We use our different locations locally to accommodate grain excess.

Farmers don’t have to rely on consumer need to harvest, move and store their produce as we can provide our superior facilities for their benefit. All our storage facilities are TASCC registered to ensure we meet the feed and food safety requirements.

Aylsham (20,000 tonnes)
Andrew Dewing is the managing director for this farmers’ co-operative store at Aylsham. Once delivered to store, the crops are managed by the Dewing Grain team, from testing the specification of inbound and outbound commodities to providing bespoke products and blends.

Currently all storage space at Aylsham is taken up. If at any time in the future space becomes available we will make it known on this website.


Cantley (18,000 tonnes)
Yaregrain has recently finished a £1.9 million building project at Cantley which encompasses an advanced processing unit (APU) and has increased storage capacity to 18,000 tonnes. Dewing Grain are the sole marketing agents for the site where you can store wheat, barley, OSR and peas/beans.

Storage space is currently available in 100 tonne lots at £100 per tonne. These are linked to shares in the business and offer EIS tax benefits which can reduce the net cost considerably. Please contact the office for a copy of the business proposal and plan.

Fransham (5,000 tonnes)
Another brand new store for this year, Fransham, is owned by the Salmon family and Dewing Grain are adding tonnage to the farms' own produce to maximise storage income.

Holkham (24,000 tonnes)
This site at Egmere was originally a grain merchants store which was taken over by the Holkham Estate 20 years ago. Dewing Grain has an exclusive contract with Holkham to maximise the use of the store and create premium prices for grain delivered to the site. The estate fills a significant volume of the storage and Dewing Grain fills each bay to capacity.

Recent investments via the estate have significantly upgraded the facilities with a new entrance and weighbridge. A sampling system was added this year to the ongoing investment.

Honingham (21,000 tonnes)
This store, along with weighbridge and intake sampling system, has a state-of-the-art aeration linked to a humidity control, giving store temperature via a modem to the trading office and direct to the farm managers. It is a registered futures store adjacent to the Anglia Farmers' office at the Honingham Thorpe complex and is available for wheat and OSR storage.

Oulton (2000 tonnes)
Oulton has worked with Dewing Grain for the last 5 years and is a similar model to Fransham in that Dewing Grain adds to the farmers own capacity and maximises the storage income.

Plumstead (8500 tonnes)
The store has several segregated bays which offer a wide variance of product storage. It is our third year at this site and as with other stores is proving popular with local farmers.

Salle (4000 tonnes)
The storage facility at Salle has become recognised as the place to go with Oil Seed Rape at harvest in North Norfolk.

South Pickenham (26,000)
This store is brand new for 2015 and represents a £2.5 million investment by the farm. It includes two 13,000 tonne sheds, a new dryer, weighbridge and laboratory and is situated just to the East of Swaffham on the A47 offering easy access for West Norfolk farmers. We will be filling it this year with wheat.

Stoke Holy Cross (5,000 tonnes)
This store also works on the basis of the farmer building a store greater than his own requirements and we fill the site to capacity and add value to the wheat by registering it and managing it as a futures store.
