Supplying Northern and Central Minnesota's Homes and Businesses With Quality Energy Products and Services.
Since opening its doors in 1922 as the ‘Farmers Exchange’ to the present day, the Northern Star Coop has grown from a local group of farmers to a large business that has over 11,000 local patrons in Northern and Central Minnesota. Our main office is in Deer River, Minnesota. We also have facilities in Backus, Hill City, Littlefork, Long Prairie, Northome, Pine River, Remer and Walker to provide services to this large area.

Thank you for patronizing your cooperative.

The equity retirement checks sent in June of 2015 are another benefit of buying from the Northern Star Cooperative. The checks represent 100% equity of 1995 & 2% of your total equity in the cooperative from 1996 to date. By purchasing products from the Northern Star Cooperative, and using your account number, you receive equity in the co-op automatically. Since 1996 we have paid out nearly 15 million dollars in cash. 100% of all equity earned has now been paid in-full up to 1996. As you can see, it “pays” to buy from the Northern Star Cooperative!
