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.
