Blair Grain Co. was founded in 1964 by Blair A. Erigero. The company began buying corn, wheat, oats, and barley from growers throughout the Northern San Joaquin Valley. Blair Grain Co. grew by offering customers personalized and quality service that continues to distinguish its efforts through the present day.
In 1968 Karen Stedman joined Blair Grain Co. In 1979 Karen took over the management and subsequently became the owner in 1993. Karen's activities in the industry include serving as Director of the California Grain & Feed Association, Director of the California Wheat Commission, and President of the Northern California Grain Exchange. In 2014 Karen retired and the business was purchased by Patrick Klingler and Western Milling. Then in September 2020 Pat took sole ownership of Blair Grain and is running it today. Pat has been in the grain business in the area since 1993 and has been a part of Blair Grain since 2006.

We continually look for specialty crop options to provide growers with greater diversification. All of us at Blair Grain Co. look forward to meeting your grain merchandising needs in the years to come.
