Ninety-nine Rogue Valley farmers invested $10 each to form a cooperative. Little did they know 85 years later Grange Co-op would grow into a multi-million dollar business providing services to patrons throughout Southern Oregon and Northern California.
Committed to the agricultural community, Grange Co-op continues to expand with new products and services every year. In 1996, Grange Co-op merged with Josephine County Growers Co-op in Grants Pass (started in 1927). In September, 2005, Grange Co-op acquired the American Feed & Farm Supply store in Klamath Falls. In 2008, the cooperative added a retail location in White City. In 2017, Grange Co-op opened its first store in California. The Yuba City location opened in March 2017 and is currently the co-op’s largest store.
Grange Co-op’s feed mill is the only certified organic mill in Southern Oregon. It provides farmers and ranchers with sacked or bulk Rogue Quality Feeds and certified organic feed produced locally to best meet the needs of the agriculture communities served. Grange Co-op has Rogue Feeds available for horses, cattle, sheep, goats, hogs, and poultry as well as a complete line of straight grains.
Since the 60’s, when the bulk fertilizer plant was built next to the feed mill, Grange Co-op has been providing farmers with top-quality Rogue Fertilizers. Grange Co-op offers conventional and organic fertilizers that are blended at the plant to meet the demands of the region. Other products offered to the agricultural community include crop protection products like herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides, and rentals of fertilizer spreaders. The local agricultural community and landscapers not only trust Grange Co-op for the best products, but also receive expert advice, consultation and other services from Grange Co-op’s Fertilizer & Professional Products including field calls and soil samples.
