    We currently have STOPPED taking orders for salt via rail car!
    Due to the recent salt shortage and extreme demand, rail cars have become very scares; this has delayed the shipping of salt from 4 weeks to approximately 10 weeks or more. For this reason I have chosen to suspend orders via train.
    We are still taking orders for barge loads of salt. We have secured 14 barges that are due in St. Louis and Chicago by the end of December. These barges are sold on a first come first serve basis.
    When these barges are sold we will not be bring in any more for this year.
    Each barge holds approximately 1500 tons of salt.
    Cities we are currently serving:

    • Chicago
    • St. Louis
