We’re committed to your growth and success.

Welcome to
Allied Cooperative

Allied Cooperative has a long and proud history of serving farmers in West Central Wisconsin. With roots that date back to 1918, our co-op was formed when a group of farmers joined together in order to gain greater purchasing power and maximize potential for success in their farming operations. We take that legacy seriously. Though we have had mergers, acquisitions and many changes over the years, our shared commitment to our member-owners has never wavered. We exist for our members! 
 
Today Allied Cooperative has operations in Adams, Arcadia, Blair, Galesville, Mauston, Mindoro, Plainfield, Plover, Tomah, West Salem and Wisconsin Rapids. We provide a wide variety of products and services including agronomy, feed, grain, LP and refined fuels, auto parts, hardware, tires and convenience stores. 
 
Allied Cooperative is a great place to work, and it's a great place to do business. Let us show you the Allied difference!   

Our History

While the Allied Cooperative name is young, our co-op is anything but. Our roots go way back to the late 1910s and early 1920s, when farmers in several local communities formed 
cooperatives to help improve their purchasing and selling power and improve stability in their farming operations. 

Over the years, these cooperatives merged and acquired new business units to improve efficiency and enhance services – ultimately forming Allied Cooperative in 2013. While much has changed over the years, our commitment to our members and the co-op tradition continues to stand the test of time. It’s a tradition we are proud of and one that we plan to build upon well into the next generation.
