Tennessee Valley Co-op
TFC is a federated cooperative system, which means there is a pyramid of ownership. The farmer members own their local Co-ops; those local Co-ops, in turn, own TFC. This gives the farmer true ownership of his or her own farm supply and service organization. Any savings above the cost of doing business are returned to the members on a patronage basis. Because savings are distributed locally, the money remains in the area where the Co-op is located. Of course, you don't have to be a member of the Co-op to shop there. Co-op offers quality products for everyone!
