Establishment of a Production Line for Food Grade Rolled Organic Oats

Project Overview

Project Type: Farmer
Funds awarded in 1994: $5,200.00
Projected End Date: 12/31/1994
Region: Northeast
State: Vermont
Project Leader:


  • Agronomic: oats


  • Crop Production: food processing
  • Farm Business Management: budgets/cost and returns

    Proposal summary:

    We believe second-hand equipment to clean, toast and roll oats can be acquired for a cost of around $5,000. We project this would reduce our processing costs to about $.10 per pound, excluding labor cost per pound to run the equipment.
