Scratch & Peck Feeds moving to larger production facility in Burlington

Nov 2nd, 2016 | Category: News

BELLINGHAM – Local feed company Scratch and Peck Feeds announced they are relocating their production facilities from Bellingham to a larger location in Burlington. According to owner and founder Diana Ambauen-Meade, the company is expanding to meet demand and will be relocating in early 2017. The new facility in Skagit County is more than double in square footage from the current mill and production work area, and the space includes the addition of indoor and outdoor silos for grain and ingredient storage. scratch and peck feeds moving web

“We are grateful to have found the right place after a long process of searching for a larger facility that allows us to continue growing as a business,” Ambauen-Meade said. “Ensuring that we have a safe and functional work environment is a top priority. The size of this new facility gives us room to increase our efficiency and productivity to meet increased sales, while also better serving our employees and customers.”

She continued, “With growth comes new challenges, and we are looking forward to addressing those in the new space by offering a shorter production window for our wholesale and online orders, increasing automation in our production system, and adding more warehouse space – not to mention, being in Skagit County locates us closer to many of our organic grain producers and farmers.”

The search for the company’s new space, located in Burlington off Interstate 5, took several years. The facility is 40,000 square feet compared to the current 15,000 square foot mill and production space at 3883 Hammer Drive in Bellingham. The new space will bring increased automation for milling feed and bagging all products. There are seven grain silos in total, loading docks for loading and unloading trucks, larger office space, more electrical capacity, and yard space for truck maneuvering.
