Boyle, Alberta

Boyle is located on Highway 63, about 1.5 hours NE of Edmonton. This elevator is known as a Buffalo Bin, and there are only three of this type in Alberta, although this one appears to be slightly different in design from the ones in Lyalta and Foremost. It was built in 1986, and was closed in 2000 when Agricore-United opened the elevator in Star, which is about 50 miles to the south. The elevator was bought by two local farmers, and ironically... this elevator is now leased by Agricore-United.
