Willow Creek Farms Trucking began in 2001, with two day cabs pulling an augur trailer and hopper bottom within the state of Michigan. Since then, we have grown to over thirteen power units and use twenty-five trailers. We run all the continuous 48 states but primarily operate between Iowa and Pennsylvania. All trucks and trailers are late model and are satellite tracked.
Willow Creek uses hoppers designed by The Wilson Trailer Company with the lightest specs possible to allow customers a greater payload. All hoppers are less than three years old to ensure they maintain food grade standards and reliability. Our Hoppers primarily haul bulk commodities and food-grade products.
Both full-framed and frameless dump trailers are utilized by the Willow Creek fleet. Our framed dump allows us to haul 33ton of product in Michigan and 24ton of product out-of-state. Our frameless style trailer allows us to haul 25ton of product in or out of Michigan. The dump trailers can haul a wide range of products which includes commodities, fertilizers and grain. Both dump trailers are equipped with coal chutes that allow us to restrict the flow of product when dumping.
Utilizing 53’ x 102" vented dry van trailers with swing doors, Willow Creek specializes in hauling agricultural products throughout the Midwest.
Liquid Manure Tankers
The Willow Creek fleet uses 8,000 gallon tankers that can shuttle liquid loads from farm sites to field applicators. These tankers are also equipped to top dress fields as well. Tankers are available for hire or rent.
