Carolina Eastern-Crocker, LLC
20 Year Anniversary 3/19/1999-3/19/2019
CE-Crocker celebrates its 20th anniversary since it was established as a partnership between Bill Crocker and Carolina Eastern, Inc. Prior to this union, Bill's grandfather, Clarence Crocker, started the original farm store in 1930 at the current LeRoy location. Later, Bill's dad Jim, and uncles Louie and Judd would all be instrumental in continuing and growing the original business.
The 2019 season will now be the 21st season for CEC and 90th season overall that the Crocker family has been serving the farming community in Western New York.
The entire staff at CEC thanks you for your patronage and support through the years, making this all possible.

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.

2016: New dry fertilizer load-out building constructed in Stafford
2015: Our Stafford Office
The most exciting recent change at CEC is the completion of our new office building in Stafford, NY. We relocated our office personnel, dispatch, and salesmen to this new modern space. This move will improve our efficiency while still allowing room for growth. Having all salesmen and dispatch under one roof, at the same location as the vast majority of our other employees, plus fertilizer, crop protection products, and equipment, has been a long-term goal that finally reached fruition in January 2015.
