EverGRO, formerly Orange Madison Cooperative, based out of Orange, Virginia, has been a supporter of the community, dedicated to providing quality products and superior service at the best possible value since its establishment in 1933. Thursday, September 1st, 2022 marked a new era for our cooperative. In order to promote the unification of Orange Madison Cooperative and Front Royal Cooperative, OMC has changed its name to EverGRO. EverGRO is a cooperative that is passionate about our customers’ success, trustworthy and ever-growing. Nine board members currently serve EverGRO. The value of agriculture to your family, to ours, to our immediate community and surrounding regions cannot be overstated. What started from a small group of Orange County farmers splitting supplies that were delivered by rail car to a nearby railroad station, has grown into a versatile, self-sustainable company capable of providing services in agronomy, energy, animal health, and farm supplies in five locations spread across Virginia.
In 1977, the Madison location was moved to its’ current location on North Main Street in Madison, Virginia. A decade later, our Orange store made its final relocation to James Madison Highway in Orange, Virginia. The Gordonsville location closed in 1997 leading to Orange Madison Cooperative leasing the Louisa Feed Service in Louisa, Virginia. At the time, the facility was owned by the Marshall Family. It wasn’t until 2017 that Louisa Feed Service was purchased by Orange Madison Cooperative officially adding it as the company’s third location. In 2022, Orange Madison Cooperative and Front Royal Cooperative entered a merger agreement allowing Orange Madison Cooperative to acquire two farm stores located in Front Royal and Upperville. Today, all five farm store and warehouse locations offer services in agronomy, farm supply, and animal nutrition. The merger between Orange Madison Cooperative and Front Royal prompted OMC to change their name to EverGRO in order to promote the unification between the two cooperative’s and its ever-growing territory.
In 1991, Orange Madison Cooperative entered a management agreement with Southern States Cooperative located in Richmond, Virginia. Southern States provided services to OMC including accounting, IT, Human Resources, and Safety. This agreement was dissolved in 2020 which led Orange Madison Cooperative to internalize services that were previously provided by Sothern States Cooperative. In 2020, Orange Madison Cooperative joined GROWMARK, Inc. as a Member Cooperative. In this agreement, GROWMARK provides EverGRO with crop inputs, fuels, propane, and a variety of customer support and marketing services.
In 1993, the Orange Madison Cooperative established a propane operation. In 2006, the Cooperative purchased Carlton Brook Petroleum, a refined fuels distributor. This was a Southern States private dealer located in Charlottesville, Virginia which is currently home to our petroleum division. In 2013, Orange Madison Cooperative purchased UTZ & Shepherd Fuel Oil Business in Madison County, Virginia aiding in the expansion of the Cooperative’s energy service department. Today, the cooperative provides energy services out of our Orange location and supplies petroleum out of our Charlottesville facility.
