Don’t Take Our Word For It

We’ve been processing beans and peas since 1992. Over those years, we’ve been lucky enough to have a lot of good customers who are also great people. Here’s what a few of them have had to say about us:

Jim Enger – Star of the West Milling Co.

“Our main plant is a pinto bean processing plant. Our old plant was for blacks, but the blacks I had on hand were too fragile to run through it. With the way all of their spouts are lined with rubber and the minimal product free fall compounded by the gentle way Northwest Seed Cleaning handles my products, I had them come and process my blacks for me. Northwest Seed Cleaning and its employees are a great bunch of people to work with.”

 

Rick Harpestad – SRS Commodities

“Northwest Seed Cleaning has been a good way for our plant to clean and ship out different commodities when our buyers need them. For example, by using Northwest Seed Cleaning services it allows me to ship out a car load of clean pinto splits for my buyers without shutting down my main pinto processing line just to fill a splits order. They are a good way for me to sell other products without taking time, employees or equipment away from our main processing lines.”

Mike Hallingstad - American Bean Company

“I’m primarily a pinto bean and black bean processing plant. A group of my growers wanted to raise navy beans and cranberry, but I did not have the ability to process what I currently handled, let alone a different variety. After talking to Gene Olson, I knew that I could have him come in and do the processing for me, thus allowing me to handle the changing needs of my growers without compromising the quality of my pinto and blacks processing line.”

Steve Holmgren - Cenex Harvest States

“Northwest Seed Cleaning helped us clean up our grain to a point that we could not have done ourselves. They separated good wheat from the scab wheat. Without them we could not have made this separation. If the opportunity arose, I would use their services again.”

Mark Johnson - South Dakota Wheat Growers Assoc.

“In 1992 I took in over 1.5 million bushels of scab wheat. Gene came in with his rig and cleaned 24 hours a day until it was all cleaned up. They helped me out when I was in a pinch, and I could not have asked for a better group of people to work with. They turned an unmarketable product into a marketable one.”
