Communities We Serve

The communities we are a part of include Marion, Freeman, Salem, Dimock, Montrose, Canova, Lyons, Viborg, Irene, Scotland, Springfield and Tyndall. Each is a thriving community with excellent schools, housing, events and more.

Part of our responsibility, and privilege, as a cooperative doing business in rural America is to help support the communities in which we do business. Whether it's grilling burgers at a community function or a student receiving a scholarship to help pursue their Ag education, we make a conscious effort to give back to our local communities.
