Deep Roots, Dedication & Drive

Community Involvement

At CFE, we drive to share success with our customers, partners, and farming communities by providing first-class information, service, and solutions. We recognize that we are important members of the communities where we live and work, as employers, as citizens, and as volunteers.

We do our best to support and advocate in every community we serve. We take pride in being the local, trusted coop.

Connections Assistance Program

Farming is a stressful life even in the best of times. But when challenges outside our control begin to take a toll on your well-being, it's time to take action. Experts agree, the best way to deal with increased stress in your life is to talk with someone.

As a member-owner of your cooperative, you are a part of an extended co-op family that cares about you and your well-being. That's why we've arranged for Connections services to be provided as a shareholder benefit, free of charge and completely confidential.

Rest assured, no one from CFE will be involved with your sessions and only you will be privy to any information you share.
