Supporting Organic Products & The Birkett Mills!


In July FLEDC closed a loan to help finance the purchase by The Birkett Mills, one of the oldest mills in the United States, of grain cooling and storage equipment.  The equipment financed by this loan will allow Birkett to cool and store organic grains, something that will support the expansion of the company’s production of the high quality buckwheat products that they have been making in downtown Penn Yan since 1797.
