There are several CountryMark Cooperative Inc. fuel terminal stations in Indiana, located in the towns of Mount Vernon, Switz City, Jolietville and Peru. The co-op has 18 members that deliver CountryMark products in the Hoosier state, and 90 gas stations in the midwest carry their fuels. Each member co-op is controlled and owned locally, unlike many other fuel refiners. This means that all profits remain in local communities, and benefit local residents.
The co-op began in the 1920s, originally named the Farm Bureau Cooperative Association. Originally, the founders were all farmers, and they formed this co-op in order to collectively purchase oil for their farming equipment. Soon after forming, the Farm Bureau Cooperative Association saw a need for higher quality fuels. In the 1930s and 1940s, the co-op became experts on drilling, refining and distributing their fuels.
