HISTORY


The Farmers Cooperative Elevator and Mercantile Association of Dighton was started in 1916. At this time, not much is known about the history of the Dighton Co-op.

The Dighton Elevator was built in 1930. It now has a licensed storage capacity of 1,751,000 bushels.

The Dighton Elevator became a part of the Garden City Co-op on April 1, 2005 when the Farmers Cooperative Elevator and Mercantile Association of Dighton merged with the Garden City Co-op. At the time of purchase, there was also an “air dome” which held approximately 1.3 million bushels capacity but it was destroyed by an ice storm in 2007.
