Haggerty Creek Ltd. was founded as a joint venture in April of 2001 by Chuck and Justin Baresich, with AGRIS Co-operative, in order to better service the four counties area. Our farming background is strong and rooted in the community. We sell and recommend the same products we use on our own farms.
Our primary customer base is located between Alvinston, Rodney, Newbury and Rutherford. The four counties area comprises of Dawn-Euphemia Township, (Lambton County), Zone Township (Kent County), Mosa Township (Middlesex County), and Aldborough Township (Elgin County), extending into parts of Brooke, Enniskillen, and Orford Townships (Essentially all the lands that are drained into the “Haggerty Creek”, hence our name.)
The market area primarily consists of a mixture of cash crop farms ranging from very small to very large. We also service specialty customers with vegetables, tobacco, nursery amongst other crops.
The Bothwell area is well known for its sharp sandy soil – so corn is king.
Haggerty Creek has a commitment to an excellent level of service, provided with hands on experience from staff who know the area and the people. We strive to be there for our customers when others are not, and that there is always a solution to our customers needs. This begins with a whole farm approach, from precision planning and application, ending with grain handling and marketing.
In 2001 Haggerty Creek constructed 270,000 bu of permanent storage with 10,000 bph unload capacity. In 2008 we constructed a 400,000 bu temporary corn storage area. In 2012 we added 400,000 bu of permanent grain storage.
The facility was constructed by local contractors, including Lambton Conveyor Ltd., Precision Concrete, and Honey Electric Ltd, which is in step with the operational model set for by the owners.
The grain system is designed to be efficient and easy to maintain.
