Lothian Grain Elevator Opening

Lothian Grain Elevator opening Friday, October 13

The Lothian Grain Elevator is opening on Friday, October 13, 2023. 

Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman issued the following statement regarding the opening of the Grain Elevator in Lothian, MD.

Friday’s opening of the Lothian Grain Elevator is probably the most impactful local government action on behalf of agriculture in the history of our county.

When it’s time to harvest the corn, the beans, or the wheat grown on over ten thousand acres of our county, it needs to get trucked somewhere for storage on its way to market. The closer that somewhere is, the quicker that field can get harvested. 

Without a local elevator, growing grains just isn’t feasible. We’ve already lost thousands of acres of our county’s farmland, and we can’t afford to lose more.
