Co-op Matters

Responsible Ag

Jackson Farmers Co-op in Scottsboro achieves Responsible Ag certification.

Congratulations to our newest recipient of the Responsible Ag certification, Jackson Farmers Co-op in Scottsboro. They are located 30 miles from Georgia and Tennessee, and in one of the most beautiful places in Alabama – and, yes, there are a lot of them in our state.

Jackson Farmers Co-op employees are, from left to right, (top row) Manager Lloyd Nelms, Richard Rogers, Mike Gifford, Paul Lee, Ramsey Prince, (bottom row) Sarah Greene, Angie Hill, Maggie Roberts and Audre Gilbert.

The Co-op carries a variety of supplies to cover everyone’s needs. If you are camping in the mountains or around the lake, Lloyd Nelms, manager, and staff can help you with solar decorations or a strange-size connector for the camper. If you live in the area and need something a little more substantial, check out their various products, including a large selection of mowers, trimmers and saws. With the location being so close to several rural communities, they can also supply any and all land needs.

While driving to check on the changing colors of the leaves, don’t forget to include this area. With views of the mountains and lakes, and the Soda Shop in town, it is a great place to catch your breath. And don’t forget to stop and tell Nelms and everyone at the Co-op congratulations.
