CO-OP Month Coloring Contest for Kids

October is Co-op Month and we are celebrating along with 40,000 other cooperative businesses serving more than 120 million people nationwide. Cooperatives see the future and commit to Agriculture is the theme of this year's celebration.
As a member-owned and member controlled business, this year's theme is right on target. We are shaped by our past and committed to our future. At CFS we are committed to our members, agriculture, sustainability, and building stronger communities.
Join us in celebrating cooperatives during co-op month.

This year we will be giving away 3 bikes (1 per age group) so send in your coloring page by October 31st to qualify!

The Power of Progress

Formed by the union of strong, successful ag-focused cooperatives with rich traditions and deep roots in the communities we serve, CFS turns progress into powerful solutions for our customers. We are shaped by our past experience, not bound by it. We use what we have learned as a foundation that allows us to work efficiently in the present, and we are focused on shaping the future. In all we do, we are guided by five core principles.

1 WE CONSIDER OUR CUSTOMERS FIRST.

2 WE HARNESS CHANGE FOR THE BENEFIT OF OUR MEMBER/OWNERS.

3 WE GIVE BACK TO OUR COMMUNITIES. 

4 WE PROVIDE AVENUES FOR EMPLOYEE GROWTH AND SUCCESS.

5 WE ALL OWN THIS.
