Directory of Co-operatives
Pathfields Business Park
Mole Valley Farmers was started in 1960 by a small group of farmers around South Molton who were concerned by the discriminatory practices and the large margins being taken by many of their input suppliers. From the outset it was decided to treat all members equally, subject only to quantity allowance and that the Company would operate on the minimum margin to allow continuity and growth. Today it remains one of a few true co-operatives in the supply industry. You do not have to be a member to shop in our branches. For many their first visit is a unique experience to see such a diverse and wide range of quality products on sale at our competitive prices. More and more rural dwellers and members of the public are realising the advantage of purchasing goods from this co-operative at farmers' prices.
