Located in unincorporated Rising, Illinois, and on Rising Rd. — the Rising Farmers Grain Company elevator is most impressive considering it’s history and place in Illinois’ grain processing game. It endures even though it is an old wooden elevator and their man lift still functions by rope. Plus, it’s completely farmer owned. The elevator produces 30,000 to 34,000 bushels of grain annually and they are the smallest co-op left in the state, with three locations across Illinois.
