Four generations and over 100 years of agricultural production in Pennsylvania’s Susquehanna Valley.
Boyd Station, LLC is the result of four generations of farmers and nearly 100 years of agricultural production. Its roots in local agriculture began in 1912 with the purchase of 181 acres of farmland in Rush Township, Danville, PA. Today, that original purchase has evolved into a corn and soybean farm, egg layer operation, grain merchandiser, and soybean processing facility.
Soybean Processing & Commodity Distribution
2002 – Present
2002: Boyd Station begins operations as agricultural commodity and transloading facility. Feed ingredients are sourced by railcar and distributed by truckload to area feed manufacturers.
2004: Extruders and presses are installed to begin processing local soybeans into feed ingredients. The processing facility enables the business to complement its existing conventional feed commodity product line with a unique line of expelled soy products, made with local soybeans and all-natural processes, to serve premium all-natural feed mills.
2008: Additional extruders and presses are added to the soybean processing facility to meet the local demand for an all-natural chemical-free expelled soybean meal feed ingredient with vitamin-rich vegetable fat.
2010: Obtained organic certification and began purchasing and processing organic soybeans into organic feed ingredients to serve the growing poultry and dairy feed market.
2015: Production begins at a new 100% dedicated organic processing facility that operates separately and independently from the existing processing facility, adding capacity to meet organic demand and providing complete segregation of organic processing, handling, and storage.
Egg & Feed Production
1972 – Present
1912 – Present
Today the farm manages approximately 1,500 acres of corn, soybeans, and barley according to the same principles of soil conservation and sustainability that earned these accolades in earlier years. 100% of the grain that Cotner Farms grows on its farm goes into the diet enjoyed by the laying hens on the property, either directly into the feed or indirectly through the expelled meal and soybean oil purchased from Boyd Station.
Our extensive history in Pennsylvania agriculture has provided the necessary foundation for Boyd Station’s current operations. We hope to use our diverse experience and continuing innovative spirit to provide value to local soybean producers, feed manufacturers, and poultry and livestock farmers. It is our goal to improve the economics of PA’s agricultural industry.
