The mining of sand and topsoil at 16575 Ida West Rd Petersburg MI. became Herkimer Sand in 2012. It had been a sand mining operation previously so Jerry Herkimer continued with the original plans. It is a natural sand vein left from glaciers that provides good quality fill sand, yellow sand and sandy topsoil. We load with a John Deere 844J that has a 10 ton bucket to keep the trucks moving.
The Herkimer family has been pleasing return customers for over 60 years in Lenawee and Monroe County. It started with Perl Herkimer Backhoe and Trucking in the 1950’s by Perl Herkimer in Maybee MI. Jerry Herkimer worked with his Dad for many years and took over the business in 1998. The name was changed to Herkimer Backhoe and Trucking LLC. Jerry continues the family tradition of honesty and top quality service.
