About Us

In January, 2019, Reynolds United Cooperative and Halstad Grain Elevator Co. joined forces, agreeing by a vote of their members to move forward under the Valley United name. 

Headquartered in Reynolds, ND, Valley United employs roughly 75 full time employees, 100 during the busy season with seasonal help, and serves more than 500 customers in the Red River Valley of Minnesota and North Dakota.


The Board of Directors of our newly merged cooperative unanimously approved the following mission statement: 

Our mission at Valley United Co-op is to be the leader in providing quality products, services and markets to our customers while optimizing value to our patrons.

The communities we serve include Ada and Halstad, MN, as well as Buxton, Grandin, Hatton, Hillsboro, Mayville, Portland and Reynolds, ND.

At Valley United, our employees and board feel a deep sense of responsibility to be good corporate citizens and neighbors in the towns where we operate, partly because it’s the right thing to do. And partly because we live in these communities too.

It is in that spirit that our cooperative has long been a long time financial supporter of local initiatives, including Dollars for Scholars, fundraiser walks and golf outings to raise money for Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease research, and providing Shrine Circus tickets for Central Valley kids. 

We have also partnered with Land O’Lakes, who matches our contributions dollar-for-dollar, to fund our local fire and rescue departments, purchase iPads for local schools, and bleachers and baseball equipment for local youth sports teams.
