Agway is a farmer owned cooperative and we have done business with them for over 50 years. It started as a purchasing cooperative through the efforts of the New York State Grange, The Dairymen's League, and the New York Farm Bureau. It was known as the GLF until about the 70's. It is operated by professional managers, although the Board of Directors are all active farmers in the northeast. In recent years they have opened and operated a series of Agway Lawn and Garden centers located in the northeast. Agway has guaranteed quality control and I have never had any difficulty resolving a problem with them. My personal experience rates them excellent!
