About the Durham Farmers' County Co-op

Land Acknowledgement

The Durham Farmers’ County Co-op, comprising Orono and Grafton Co-ops and Wrights’ Feeds ‘N Needs, respectfully acknowledge that we are located on the Treaty and traditional territories of:

  • the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois),

  • the Huron-Wendat, and

  • the Michi Saagiig (Mississauga) and Chippewa (Ojibway) of the Anishinaabe (known collectively as the Williams Treaties First Nations).

The Co-op is humbled to recognize the longstanding and ongoing contributions made by the First Nations. We are grateful for the opportunities provided by these special lands that we all share, and we thank all the generations of people who have been, and will continue to be for generations to come, vigilant stewards and caretakers of these lands and waters.  

History of the Durham Farmers' County Co-op

The Durham Farmers’ County Co-op was formed on July 28, 1947 by a group of rural people wishing to provide a consistent supply of products and services at a competitive price. A co-operative is controlled by the people it services. Its profits are reinvested into the co-operative or community directly benefiting its members. 

From this agricultural base, Durham Farmers’ County Co-operative has expanded to be a major supplier of consumer goods and services. Our stores are staffed by experienced people, dedicated to serving both our members and the community at large.
