Polk County Farmers’ Co-op dba Ag West Supply is a farm supply cooperative that originated in 1932 in Rickreall, Oregon. The formation of the Cooperative was through the efforts of several farmers/members throughout Polk County who contributed both time and money.
The purpose at that time was to stabilize both the supply and price of fuel to those growers in the area.
Over the years Ag West Supply has expanded to also include the retail sales of fertilizer & chemicals, hardware, tires, oil & grease, machinery, parts and service.
Like all cooperatives, Ag West Supply is governed by an elected Board of Directors and is supervised by a General Manager who oversees the day-to-day operations. Although the members own the business and elect the Board of Directors, the Cooperative is open to the general public and everyone can take advantage of the same competitive pricing.
