CELEBRATING 100 YEARS OF COOPERATIVE SUCCESS

Providing "Service from the Ground Up" for 100 years

Founded in 1917, Elkhart Coop has been the area farmer’s business partner for 100 years.  Elkhart Coop employs local residents, makes purchases from local businesses and hires local contractors when updating facilities. Elkhart Coop is part of the community; our employees are from the communities we serve, and we’re active in supporting causes in our communities. From supporting area schools and raising money for local food pantries to helping local FFA chapters and bidding on 4-H’ers’ animals at county fairs, Elkhart Coop is embedded in our communities. Being local, your co-op knows you, your family, your land, and what it takes to make your operation successful.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

 

If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.

What is a Co-op?

Cooperatives are owned and controlled by the people who use them. Cooperatives differ from other businesses because they are member owned and operate for the mutual benefit of members.
