About Us » Our History

Federation Cooperative was started in 1929. At that time, the cooperative began with three employees and provided bulk petroleum and a service station to farmers in Black River Falls and Jackson County.

In 1963, the downtown location was purchased and the hardware store, convenience store and automotive department were opened. A year later, the first bulk fertilizer warehouse was built. The Black River Crossing Travel Center opened in 1973, and the 4 Seasons Quik Stop was purchased in 1997 along with a full service car wash.

Federation Cooperative opened the Cranberry Supply in Warrens in 2003. The Transport Division became Federation Trucking, LLC in 2004.

In June 2012, the patrons voted to merge Federation Cooperative with Hixton Fairchild Farmers Coop. With this came the Cheese Hut, Northfield Town Mart, Double T Quik Stop, and Fairchild C-Store. This merger became effective October 1, 2012, retaining the name Federation Cooperative.

In partnership with CHS, Federation Cooperative built a propane terminal in 2014. Then in 2015, the new fertilizer plant was completed. Both of these services are located in Hixton.
