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.
