WE BELIEVE IN THE FARMERS COOPERATIVE DIFFERENCE.
Farmers cooperatives abide by the following seven cooperative principles. These standards ensure the best member experience for everyone and makes our customers proud to do business with us.
We Share Our Success Each Year by Providing Cash Back/Patronage
Each year, Medford Cooperative shares its profits by returning a percentage of what you spend at our many locations. The percentage is calculated based on the amount you spend and our profit for the year.
To receive patronage, your total purchases must exceed $1000 (e.g. $20 in your gas tank each week throughout the year). Patronage is returned to you each year in a combination of cash and stock.
WE’VE BEEN A FARMERS COOPERATIVE FOR OVER 110 YEARS.
If you’re looking for a reliable company, with a rich history – you’ve found it.
Medford Cooperative company signed the articles of organization on March 31, 1911, which makes it among the oldest cooperatives in the state of Wisconsin. The founders’ vision was that by buying cooperatively, the availability of goods and services could be assured. Like the formation of many cooperatives, this created the concept of a company owned by the people, for the people.
Over the years, growth and development of the Medford Cooperative has frequently taken place to ensure our customer needs are met. One cooperative, with everything you need from groceries and hardware to agricultural services and fuel. Our retail departments provide our customers with groceries, hardware and convenience stores. Customers can work with our agricultural services for animal nutrition, grain services and agronomy. Our energy department is a trusted supplier for fuels, propane, and lubricants in a 12,000 square mile territory.
Keeping in mind the concept of cooperatives being owned by the patrons, it is important to remember when you support your coop, you help your neighbors, your friends and, most of all, you help yourself. Each year Medford Cooperative shares its success with our customers in the form of patronage. In 2020, we gave over $2 million back to our customers. We continue to grow and work together toward the future, allowing us to reinvest in our communities, provide employment and give back to our customers. That’s what sets our farmers coop apart from the rest.
