|TO OUR CUSTOMERS:|
First, we would like to than all of you for continued support and business over the last few years. We have always tried to sell you a quality product at a fair price. Unfortunately that feed comes from a very old and worn out feed mill. There are many pieces of equipment that are required to make the feed, and all must be in good working order to make the end product. Two of the main components of this process are beyond repair, and must be replaced to be able to continue to make feed. The bids to replace just these 2 pieces of equipment are more than $250,000, and even if replaced, the rest of the feed mill will still be old and worn out, and will require additonal large capital investments in the future.
After looking at all our options, we believe it will be in our best long term economic interest to close this feed mill and feed store as soon as we can use up the ingredients that we have on hand. Because we are not exactly sure when this will occur, we will try to keep you informed via our web sight leonriverfarms.com, signs on the doors, and messages on the answering machine. Our best guess is that our last day of continous operation will we Saturday, June 11. We will then probably reopen for a few days the next week and sell all the odds and ends left at greatly reduced prices.
Again, Steve, myself, and my family want to thank you for all of your support over the years !
