October is National Co-op and Pork Month

    Everything has its own month, week or day. Here during fall harvest in farm country, it’s fitting to recognize National Co-op Month and the benefits cooperatives provide through membership. We have been recognizing cooperatives nationally since 1964 when U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman proclaimed the very first National Co-op Month.  

According to Coopmonth.coop, this year’s theme of “Build Back for Impact,” refers to our society during and post pandemic and how we can be stronger through adversity.
