Co-op Matters

Farm-City Salute


Franklin Co. Co-op is recognized as Organization of the Year by ACES.

The Franklin County Co-op in Russellville was presented the Organization of the Year award by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System at the 59th Farm-City Banquet held at the A.W. Todd Center in Russellville on Nov. 24, 2014. The program had this about the Co-op:

"The Franklin County Cooperative was formed in Russellville in 1939. This farmer-owned cooperative was established to provide the supply needs of Franklin County farmers. This cooperative serves the farm, home and business needs of Franklin County. Manager Karen Linker and staff provide customers with quality products and service with a smile.

"Karen has been a major source for Agricultural Community projects in the Franklin County area. Without her generosity and willingness to help, many of the projects would not have been successful."
