Farmers represent fewer than one percent of the U.S. population, yet they are responsible for feeding a population of 450 million by 2050 amid increasingly challenging conditions. As local producers navigate various challenges in the industry, Northern Country Cooperative’s goal with this new facility is to offer farmers more efficient, effective services that meet the needs of modern agriculture today and into the future.


Grand Opening of New Facility | July 20, 2023

Northern Country Cooperative celebrated the grand opening of its new, state-of-the-art agronomy service center on July 20, 2023. Iowa Secretary of Agriculture, Mike Naig, joined the cooperative’s farmer-members at the open house, which highlighted the facility’s automation and hub-and-spoke model to provide farmers with 24-hour access to the latest agricultural technologies and products.

Agriculture serves as economic engine of rural America, including in the Stacyville area. The new cooperative facility, which plays a critical role in fueling the industry, will serve farmers in an approximate 50-mile radius of Stacyville. The new facility includes features like liquid fertilizer storage capacity of 3.25 million gallons to better serve today’s large farming operations, new operations offices, seed, crop protection products and bay areas, plus 24-hour access for growers.

Congratulations to our drawing winners!

Rural cooperatives may look like any other business, but inside, they are very different. They create jobs and a reliable tax base for Iowa’s rural communities, they share profits with local farmer-owners to reinvest in their businesses and local communities and give back to their towns and communities through philanthropic giving. The $10 million investment by Northern Country Cooperative is more than just a building, and it is more than an offering to make farmers’ operations more efficient. It is also an economic fire that will burn for years to come.
