Southern States Cooperative History

Southern States Cooperative was originally founded as Virginia Seed Service, a conglomeration of 150 Virginia farmers to help distribute seeds, farm equipment, and fertilizer. This cooperative allowed Virginia farmers to receive and investigate better quality seeds.

Today, the company is an agricultural powerhouse, with more than 200,000 members and more than 1,200 locations in 23 states. The company sells almost everything for the homeowner and farmer, including animal feed and fertilizer; seed processing; grain marketing; equine health; diesel, propane, and home-heating services; wholesale farm supplies; financing; and even bib overalls.

Southern States continues to encourage farmers and is looking towards technology. In late 2014, the company began enlisting the help and technology of Real-Time Kinematic (RTK), one of the newest high-tech tools to allow satellite information from GPS networks to guide field equipment with higher rates of accuracy.
