About Us


We are a cooperative that has been serving the areas of Tioga and Stanley for over 70 years. Our unwavering commitment to the North Dakotan farmer and his business has resulted in the success and growth in our areas of business. Along with agricultural services, we also have energy and oilfield services available alongside our two truck stops in Stanley and Tioga. These stores have their own clothing departments, full-service kitchens, and hardware sections as well as your typical quick-stop needs such as gas, snacks and much, much more.
