Patron Note Program


The Patron Note Program allows members additional opportunities to invest in their cooperative. The program, established in April 2019, includes two interest-bearing certificates.

*ONLY AVAILABLE TO WISCONSIN RESIDENTS

  • Demand Certificate: Requires a minimum of $2,500 and bears interest at 2% per annum. The interest rate will be reviewed periodically and adjusted to market rates at our discretion. Funds are available for withdrawal within five business days of execution of the demand certificate.
  • Three-Year Certificate: Requires a minimum deposit of $5,000 at 3.25% interest. Interest is accrued as simple interest, and the interest rate is locked for the three-year term of the certificate. There is an early withdrawal penalty of six months of interest on the principle.

Additional details about each interest-bearing certificate can be found in the FAQ by clicking on the link below.

Countryside Cooperative


The people who use Countryside products, supplies and services are the same people who own the cooperative.

While cooperatives vary in type and membership size, all meet specific objectives set forth by their members and adapt to members’ changing needs. Our communal function is to see that farmers, producers, workers and consumers accomplish more collectively than they can individually.

History

Countryside Cooperative formed on September 1, 1998, when Durand Cooperative and Mondovi Co-op Equity Association consolidated.

Countryside is west-central Wisconsin’s premier member-owned cooperative. We are dedicated to service and committed to success, governed by integrity, and driven by a passion of excellence toward a future without boundaries. As an agricultural cooperative, we are owned and controlled by our members-patrons-owners who work together for the common good of the community.

Profits are returned to Countryside Cooperative member-patrons-owners in proportion to the amount of their patronage.

Countryside Cooperative now serves the communities of Alma, Amery, Baldwin, Blair, Burkhardt (Hudson), Cochrane, Durand, Elmwood, Ellsworth, Fall Creek, Foster, Glenwood City, Gilmanton, Luck, Milltown, Mondovi, Menomonie, King’s Valley (Osseo), New Richmond, Pepin, Pigeon Falls, Rock Falls, Strum, Spring Valley, Waumandee, and Whitehall.

Membership


Countryside Cooperative is member owned. Members are not just those whose principle occupation is production agriculture; in fact, anyone can become a member. By patronizing Countryside Cooperative, you have the opportunity to become a member and share in the pride and benefits of cooperative membership.
