Stewart Grain acts as a steward of grain collection, processing, and marketing for midwestern US farmers. The family-owned company processes and sells at wholesale prices corn, beans, and wheat from four grain elevator locations in Illinois and Indiana. Its facilities have the capacity to handle more than a million bushels of grain, and it has access to three local railroads, which transport harvested grain to and from the elevators. Stewart Grain was founded in 1922 by Bert Etchison (with original partners Joe Weaver and A.J. Miller). His grandson, Burton Etchison, has been the company's president and CEO since 1982.
