Chamber Chat featuring Harvest Land

The Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce recently called the office and asked Harvest Land to appear on their weekly Chamber Chat series, which highlights upcoming community events and businesses. Typically, we’d go to a small TV studio on the campus of IU East to do this interview, but because of COVID-19, this was done virtually through Zoom. 

During the interview, we were able to give a general overview of our cooperative business, discuss how we handled the COVID-19 pandemic, and also how the pandemic will go on to affect us down the road. There is so much to consider daily as we navigate today to prepare for the future in this changing world.

“Wow. Every time I talk to someone from Harvest Land, I learn something new about what you’re doing and who you’re serving, and it seems like that number just continues to grow,” responded Roxie Deer, Director of Professional Development.

While there are many pressing things that cover our desks, truck dashes, and to-do lists at work, we think it is still important to answer these calls in order to tell our story. Not only because of our rich history in countless small communities in Ohio and Indiana, but also because we have a lot to offer.

We kept construction projects running by fueling machines when other areas of the country shut down. We hired more than 70 employees when other businesses laid people off during COVID-19. We continued to make huge contributions to fire departments with grain rescue tubes to ensure they’re prepared to serve communities. Our work doesn’t slow down and we’re quite fortunate to employ more than 300 people who have never let their foot off the gas since March. 

This week we invite you to watch the interview, now on YouTube. The first part talks about the approaching Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce Farm Tour. We’re proud to sponsor this annual event which is organized to educate the general public on all areas of agriculture. It will be held at The Barn at Helm on August 27 (REGISTER HERE!)

If you fast forward to 12:20 you can watch our interview and learn even more about our evolving business climate.

Co-Alliance and Harvest Land to Pursue Merger

Indiana-based agricultural cooperatives Co-Alliance, LLP and Harvest Land Cooperative announced on Thursday an agreement to pursue a merger.

“This merger will offer exceptional opportunities to our farmer-owners in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Illinois. The expanded resources, more robust product line and extension of quality service will extend beyond what the two co-ops could offer individually. Together, we anticipate great success in cultivating opportunities for our members through this historic merger with the Co-Alliance team,” said Scott Logue, CEO of Harvest Land.

The merger would bring efficiencies to the agronomy, energy, grain, swine, and animal nutrition services of each company and is representative of the importance of scale in the cooperative model serving local farmers. “The opportunity to merge with Harvest Land brings both companies a chance to enhance their customer experience and meet the growing demands of the ever-changing agriculture industry.  We are excited to bring this powerful combination to our grower members,” added Kevin Still, CEO of Co-Alliance.

Due diligence will begin in the coming months with hope to complete the merger in 2021.

Co-Alliance and Harvest Land are already partnered on United Agronomy Services, LLP, a full-service agronomy retailer in Summitville, Indiana. This location is consistently a top performer for both parent companies.

Harvest Land Co-op is a local, farmer-owned cooperative, providing innovative agronomic and energy services in east central Indiana and southwest Ohio. Originally organized in the late 1920’s, they continue to specialize in providing farmers with the products and strategic opportunities they need to operate effectively and profitably. Their business is focused around four key areas for their members: agronomy, energy, grain and feed. Harvest Land works diligently to reduce risk for the sole operator, whether that be through fuel or propane contracting, grain marketing insight, crop protection products or providing a balanced diet for livestock.

Co-Alliance LLP is a member-owned supply and marketing operation delivering innovative solutions for farmer-members and customers across Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois specializing in agronomy, propane, fuels, grain, seed, hog production and feed. The customer-focused company strives to fulfill its collective mission to lead with people and technology, grow profitably, give back locally, and remember it is a cooperative.
