Pinnacle Agriculture Acquires East Bernard Milling

The new Sanders location will be managed by former East Bernard Milling co-owners, Brady and Britt Whitley, and will remain located at 106 Jones St., East Bernard, TX 77435. The current employees of East Bernard Milling will retain their positions under the new ownership.

East Bernard Milling has been a vital part of the East Bernard community and its history for 60 years. The father and son team of Henry and Johnny Viktorin started East Bernard Milling Co. in 1954 to provide quality feeds and friendly service to farmers and ranchers throughout Wharton County and beyond.  The Whitley Family purchased East Bernard Milling and took over operations on July 1, 2000.

East Bernard Milling co-owner, Britt Whitley, said, “The Whitley family would like to thank all our customers for their support while we were stewards of East Bernard Milling.  We have been blessed with the opportunity to serve an industry filled with honest, hardworking people we call friends. Pinnacle’s acquisition of East Bernard Milling provides the next step in offering a wider range of products and services to our customers.”

“Pinnacle and Sanders are very pleased with the recent acquisition of this highly-regarded business and welcomes its staff to our family,” said John Williams, Area Operations Manager.  “The Whitley family and the team at East Bernard Milling bring valuable expertise in the farm and ranch markets and will complement the existing Sanders business in Texas.”

Coupled with the existing Sanders locations in Combes, Hearne, Knippa, Marlin, and Taft, this will be Sanders’ sixth retail location in the southeast Texas area offering custom fertilizer blends, seed and crop protection products, and award-winning precision agriculture services through Sanders’ proprietary OptiGro system.
