Kit number 190 is our interpretation of the classic Stave Silo, variations of which are still seen doted across the breadbasket of America. Our easy to construct silo is based on a typical 50 foot high x 20 foot diameter vertical structure. The Stave silo was constructed using wood or concrete planks that were then tightly banded together to form a ring. To increase the strength toward the bottom of a silo, bands were installed at greater frequency. The typical use of this type of silo is not for the storage of harvested grain, but for the creation of feed called silage. Silage is made from grass crops, including corn or other cereals, using the entire green plant (not just the grain). The plant is then shredded and blown into the silo through the fill tube on the side. Once loaded, the top is covered in plastic and is allowed to ferment. The farmer would then unload the silage through the large unloading chute on the side and feed it to cud-chewing animals like cattle and sheep during the winter. The unloading chute typically discharged into a small house at the bottom, as on our kit, or directly into the barn.

The Farm Silo with Shed kit features 100% laser-cut wood components for a perfect fit plusTabbed & Slotted construction with Peel & Stick windows, doors, trim, roofing material, and support bands for ease of assembly. Detail parts include cast resin dome and unloading chute as well as plastic filler tube, laser-cut access ladder, white metal band clamps, and laser-etched “cracked” glazing offering the Shed an aged look. The Silo may be finished as either a wood or concrete structure. When assembled, the Silo with Shed measure 4 inches long x 3 inches wide x 8.5 inches high and compliments our very popular #178 Midwest Farm Combo or #119 Country Barn kits.
