Our sand and gravel are in many of the roads you drive on, and many of the concrete structures you see. The rock goes through a log washer that cleans the rock, then to a shaker that screens the rock into 3 different sizes from 1 1/2" to 3/8". Below is a PDF of the type of materials we're producing at the plant every day! If you have any questions contact us!
The Gravel pit was purchased from the Baker family in 1954 by Truman L. Flatt and operated by the name of Buckhart Sand & Gravel.
Buckhart Sand & Gravel is located 4 miles east of Rochester, IL on Buckhart Blacktop. The gravel pit operated with cranes and trucks for many years. The gravel pit was purchased to ensure that Truman L. Flatt & Sons had an ample supply of high quality building materials for its road business.
Buckhart quickly became one of the premier gravel pits to supply high quality building materials to construction companies around central Illinois.
In loving memory of Christine Flatt
Buckhart Sand & Gravel's legacy will continue for a long time to come!
Buckhart Sand & Gravel has evolved through out its long history. From its beginnings of being operated by cranes and trucks to now using modern state of the art equipment, the future of the gravel pit will evolve with the passage of time and we will be at the forefront of the evolution.
