Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures for ever.
Chad Nickels a fifth-generation farmer born and raised in the Texas Panhandle. After graduating from Lazbuddie High School he married his best friend, Kayla and they soon began custom harvesting. In 1998, Chad began working as plant foreman at the Muleshoe Pea and Bean, the Nickels family owned business that included growing, cleaning, storage and transportation of black-eye peas. Kayla began working in the office learning all aspects of the business. Pulse crops such as black-eyed peas and pinto beans proved to be a great alternative to corn when the water supplies in the area began to decline. Muleshoe Pea and Bean processed and shipped these pulse crops for customers all over the world including Russia and Iraq.
Chad and Kayla now own and operate two locations in Muleshoe, Texas. The west plant of CK Nickels offers a variety of services. Small grains such as wheat, milo, rye and triticale or a variety of pulses can be cleaned and packaged. The product can then be stored at our location or shipped. CK Nickels offers local growers contracts on black-eyed peas and other pulses.
The east plant of CK Nickels is located right next to the BNSF railway. Your commodity can be transloaded from the rail to our storage facility or directly on a truck ready for transport to another location. CK Nickels offers storage of organic white and yellow corn.
