The trusted name in buying and selling organic grains.
With elevator locations throughout the United States and Canada, we utilize long lasting producer relationships to provide North America with high quality Organic Grains.
F.W. Cobs Company was founded in 2006 by Shaun Brooks. Shaun had recently graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Animal Science at the time of founding the company, but had always possessed a lifelong passion for agriculture. Raised with involvement in his father’s feed mill and the family dairy farm, Shaun developed his interest in animal science and farming at a very early age. Shaun’s father, John Brooks, helped Shaun build F.W. Cobs Company with his strong knowledge, having over 40 years of experience in the grain business – founding Brooks Feeds Inc. in Swanton, VT, now owned by Poulin Grain, and also managing feed mill businesses for ADM and Renaissance Nutrition.
F.W. Cobs first started in the Northeast, but quickly grew to having a large North American presence. Utilizing five strategically located grain elevators throughout the US and Canada, F.W. Cobs buys and sells both feed and milling-grade grains; buying directly from the grower and delivering to feed mills and milling companies throughout North America. F.W. Cobs is committed to supplying the best possible Organic, Non-GMO and Conventional Grains that help feed the world through building strong relationships with industry leading growers, thus ensuring premium quality products for its customers.
Now, more than 10 years later, F.W. Cobs serves a diverse customer base ranging from multi-national conglomerates, locally owned and operated feed mills, and family owned and operated farms. We strive to understand our customers’ needs and goals, to build strong relationships based on trust, reliability and competence in the markets we serve.
Our focus is on supporting the Organic industry right here in North America. This philosophy makes us one of the only Organic Grain suppliers that supplies grains grown in the United States and Canada exclusively. We believe in the integrity of the Organic Standard, and we believe in supporting our producers and customers with local markets. F.W. Cobs does not import any Organic Grain from overseas, and we will continue focusing our support on growing the industry only from North American suppliers.
We understand that it is hard to find a knowledgeable and dedicated team who is committed to helping you achieve your goals. As farmers ourselves, we know that finding a trustworthy supplier for quality products often can be complicated and time consuming. We work diligently to obtain the best outcomes for all by streamlining transportation needs, managing logistics with a focus on timeliness and reliability.
Our objective is to serve our producers and end users with honesty, integrity, and respect, in turn creating trusting relationships for the future.
