Created in 1936 by farmers for farmers.

Originally, Dekalb Farmers Cooperative consisted of two locations in Rainsville and Crossville, AL.  Then, in December 2011 the Albertville, AL location was added to increase our customer reach.

We are a cooperative in the truest sense of the word.  Each member co-ops shares in the financial proceeds from AFC operations and benefits from the research and marketing services of the entire co-op system. In turn, this gives our company a unique customer base that allows us to create and maintain relationships with our customers.

Paired with an unselfish dedication to the mutual objectives of growth and success for its member farmers. We are proud to serve in our communities and welcome challenges that may arise with one goal in mind: To better the community.

Which results in long-term business, customer relationships, and allowing local and regional economic growth success.
