Community

At Skagit Farmers Supply we’re proud to be part of the communities that we live and work in. Support of our communities is at the heart of our cooperative mission and values. This isn’t new for us. It goes back to our founding four generations ago. Our cooperative is led by our farmer board of directors and respect and support of our communities is as important as the respect and care that is given to the land. It’s nurtured and fed and kept viable so it can be handed down to our next generation.  We believe that the local cooperative business model is still the best way to support agriculture in our country and the rural communities that we live and do business in.

About Country Store

Support of agriculture is at the heart of our mission statement. Our Country Stores are vital to this as they provide quality goods and services to our communities. As our communities change, we’re changing with them. We’re now located in suburbs and metro areas so our products are changing with them. Our busiest days of the year revolve around our four legged friends that spend so much of their days with us. We call it Pet-a-Palooza! We continue to offer products for those that want to raise animals and crops, but we’re adding to that with True Value & Ace Hardware, rugged and durable clothing and much more. We add in some expertise so we can help you when you have projects that challenge you. We hope you enjoy shopping at our County Stores.
