MFA Farmer’s Produce Exchange of Lebanon

In 1914, a group of 7 farmers from Brunswick, MO recognized the need to unify in order to save money and increase profits. They formed the first Missouri Farmer’s Association cooperative, commonly known as “MFA”, which quickly grew to be one of the largest agricultural co-ops in the nation. Over the last hundred years, MFA has established locations throughout the state of Missouri as well as across its borders into Kansas, Iowa, and Arkansas. MFA has led agriculture in establishing businesses, organizations, and other co-ops with one purpose: Serving the everyday farmer.

Farmer’s Produce Exchange #139 is a locally-owned cooperative that has been affiliated with MFA since July 24, 1920. Farmer’s Produce Exchange #139 is headquartered at the Lebanon MFA store and also includes the MFA stores in Richland, Grovespring, and Conway. One benefit to being a locally-owned co-op is increased flexibility to customize our products and services in order to better serve our customers. MFA was instrumental in the development of Lebanon and is a true staple of the community. Many of our long-time customers reminisce about their childhood memories of buying feed and walking through the old grocery store. We strive to be a place where needs are met, memories are made, and smiles are familiar.

New Beginnings for an Old Legacy

In February of 2019, the nearly 100 year-old store building caught fire and burned to the ground. Knowing the needs of our customers, we were back up and running within two days in a small building across the street behind the old store.

In October of 2020, our new building opened for business. Improvements for the modernized 11,000 square-foot showroom include a True-Value hardware section containing thousands of products to serve the needs of our customers and exchanging the dock platform loading system for a convenient covered drive-thru.
