Crystal Valley History

With our recent and exciting changes, we have decided to take this opportunity to update "Our History".  Stay tuned for our story to be shared on this site.  In the meantime, here's a little bit about us:

Crystal Valley’s focus is on agriculture for the purpose of helping farmers and livestock producers thrive. Our core businesses remain:

  • Agronomy – seed, crop nutrients, crop protection products, and custom application services;
  • Energy – gasoline, diesel fuel, lubricants, and propane;
  • Feed – animal health and nutrition products and livestock feed production services;
  • Grain – handling, drying, storage, and marketing.

Today, we have over 240 full-time employees and add 70 to 90 seasonal employee’s during the peak demand seasons of spring planting and fall harvest.

As a cooperative, Crystal Valley is owned and controlled by the agriculture producers who do business with us. We have approximately 2,500 producer members, who then elect a nine-person board of directors to govern the company and represent our entire trade area. These directors are entrusted to safeguard the members’ equity, hire and supervise the General Manager/CEO, provide direction through strategic planning, and approve major expenditures.
