October is National Cooperative Month, a time to recognize and celebrate the impact we, as cooperatives, make in our communities. A recent article published in the Pierce County Journal highlighted Ellsworth area cooperatives, including Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery.
St. Croix Economic Development Corporation and Pierce County Economic Development Corporation acknowledged both Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery and Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services for exceptional contributions to our region and how we have demonstrated our commitment to the seventh Cooperative Principle, “Concern for Community,” by actively engaging in various community projects and initiatives.

Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery and our staff take our “Concern for Community” seriously. In addition to supporting local organizations like the Chambers of Commerce and various civic groups, we support our regional higher education institutions such as Chippewa Valley Technical College and the Universities of Wisconsin, as well as educational opportunities for local youth. We also lend our leadership and support to local projects by serving on committees to problem-solve community challenges.
We’re proud to be part of communities that value cooperation, leadership, and community engagement. Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery is committed to continuing our role in making each of our communities a better place for everyone.
This observance isn’t just about us—Instead, we celebrate National Cooperative Month with everyone in the communities we serve. Let’s celebrate the positive changes we’re making together as we look forward for how we can make our communities even stronger in the days to come.
