Lansing Grain Company, LLC, today announced that it has finalized an agreement to purchase selected Idaho grain-handling facilities from General Mills
Under the terms of the purchase agreement, Lansing Grain will acquire grain-handling facilities in Bliss and Glenns Ferry, Idaho, and leasing rights to a third elevator located in Hansen, Idaho.
