Since 1934, Grange Co-op Members and Partners have received millions of dollars in dividends. Proven to be a stable, visionary company, Grange Co-op has continued to adapt to meet the growing needs of our customers. With our Agricultural Membership or Partner Program, you will not only enjoy great values, but share in Grange Co-op’s profits as well.
What are Dividends?
Dividends are profits that are returned back to our Members and Partners in direct proportion to the amount of their Grange Co-op purchases. The Board of Directors determines the dividend percentage based on the profitability the co-op achieves.
†For illustrative purposes only. Dividend rate varies each year based on annual profitability. Dividend checks are typically mailed out in April. Total equity credit for Agricultural Members revolves out in 10-11 years, Partner revolve time is undetermined. Dividends are only declared in profitable years.
Can Anyone Receive Dividends?
Yes. Since farmer/rancher members changed Grange Co-op policy, thousands of our customers have taken advantage our Grange Rewards Program by signing up as an Ag Member or Partner.
