Culpeper Farmers’ Cooperative is fast approaching 100 years in business and offering services to the communities and surrounding areas. CFC has remained a constant in the lives of local farmers, ranchers, 4-H Clubs, horse enthusiasts and other members of the community. Personal service has always been the hallmark of the Co-op, as we recognize that our customers are our neighbors and family.
In all the years of its operation, Culpeper Farmers' Cooperative, Inc. has had only seven presidents and nine general managers. Some of the names on the original roll of officers and directors are still familiar 85 years later: President A. Gordon Willis; Vice President Lee Blankenbaker; Secretary Walter Pierce; and members C. E. Griffith, H. H. Hitt, W. B. Kilby, William J. Smith and E. Turpin Willis.
In the spring of 2005, the retail stores' names were changed to CFC Farm & Home Center, to reflect the changes in the Co-op since its origins. No longer just for farmers and ranchers, the Co-op now sells clothing and hats, house paint, cookbooks, specialty toys and many other items for both farm and home.
