    I have never stepped foot in there but I drive past it quit often. The next time Im over there I need to make it a point to go inside.
    Prepare for the worst, hope for the best

    Really? You've lived here all this time and never gone to the co-op? It's an awesome place for just about anything you would want. Food, animal feed, plants, seeds, both pkged and organic loose seeds, gardens supplies, tack, livestock meds, tools and implements, and so on..You can buy in bulk or singles.
    They also sell some meats. Both wild games and domestic. I love the home smoked and cured slab bacon. Bison, pork and deer sausage. Seasonally they have dove and quail.

    They process all their own grains from local farms. You can pre-order your own mixed feed grain if you choose.
    If you have 5 acres or more, you can become a member and of course tax exempt and you collect reward points for end of year purchases. I've been a member since 1994 and have saved tons of money.

    Also, have you been to Redfield meat market on Texas Ave? That place is a 'must go to' as well! Oh my gosh that place is fantastic! I refuse to buy our meat from the grocery stores. I go to Redfield about once every 3 or 4 months to stock our meat locker for the season. Can't beat the quality and service!

    Remember what Einstein said:
    I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

    looks like China might be foreced to buy some pork from us irregardless or the trade war.

    "China is killing a third of its pigs because of a gruesome and incurable fever, which could drive up the price of pork around the world"
