Our story began almost a century ago, with a daIry co-op, a mission for fairness, and a vision of a thriving agricultural industry.
And though a lot has changed since then, both in the Co-op and in the world around us, our dedication to the farmers and families in our area has only grown stronger.
Today, we continue as a co-op, expanded far beyond dairy, serving locals through an expansive product range and expert agricultural services.
When we look to the future, we hope to see a resilient and SUCCESSFUL agricultural community that has not just survived change, but thrived in the face of it.
We know our Co-op is integral to making that happen, so every day, we will continue to bring agricultural people together in one community.
We will empower you with quality products, cutting-edge services, expert knowledge and the connections you need to overcome emerging challenges, embrace innovation, and build resilience and success.
Co-op CEO, Mark Freund, is known for his commitment to the community — to every member, every customer, and every person our business can serve and support.
For a while, co-ops seemed to go out of fashion, but they’ve made a comeback in a big way! Why? Because now, more than ever, we really need to work together to look after our land and our people. That’s what our Co-op does. It’s not just a shop; it’s something so much bigger and better, and it’s here to empower our community as we pave a path to a collective brighter future.
