Focused on Growing Your Agribusiness

After more than a century of doing business, one thing is clear: We don’t treat our customers like there’s no tomorrow. We strive to keep them for generations — by utilizing the latest technology, expanding our offerings, and providing only the highest quality products and services.

The Arthur Companies operates diverse agribusinesses, including grain elevators, a birdseed company and a wholesale fertilizer company.

"We continually innovate to help growers meet the challenges of global agriculture."

Brooks Burgum

Serving Past, Present and Future Generations

When J.A. and Jessamine Burgum began managing the Arthur Farmers Elevator in 1906, their customers delivered grain by horse and wagon. Harvesting a cash crop of wheat on a 160-acre homestead took weeks.

Today that same land is harvested in hours.

While agriculture has changed dramatically, The Arthur Companies still manages our family business with the same focus on pioneering innovation and responding to our customers’ needs.

The strong management that stabilized a struggling elevator a century ago and brought electricity to Arthur with the installation of an electric generating plant also helped farmers survive the Depression by offering credit and sharecropping arrangements.

We built North Dakota’s first retail bulk fertilizer business and the state’s first anhydrous plant. That same pioneering spirit drives our focus and commitment to customers today.
