We are limiting access at all locations and have eliminated walk-in traffic. Our staff members are available via phone (calls and texts) and email to fully serve your needs during this time.
If you are visiting a CHS location, please remain in your vehicle and call the location phone number you are visiting.
We have restricted face-to-face meetings. Our sales staff will conduct business via phone, text or email. As a company that prides itself on the relationships we have built, this will be a difficult change. However, face-to-face meetings pose a greater risk for all parties. If you need to conduct critical business that requires an in-person meeting, please call for an appointment to confirm access to the facility and availability of staff. All visitors to our office will be required to complete a questionnaire before entering our facilities.
For seed deliveries:
Those seed orders requested to be delivered will have the receipt either emailed or texted to them. You will have 48 hours to confirm the order by replying to the emailed receipt or the order will be automatically approved
Once order is delivered to your property, the employee delivering the order will take a picture of the receipt and the load delivered
For any questions, call Tim Gehling at 507-923-3066 or Jordan Thiel at 507-951-8125

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz has issued a Stay-at-Home Order related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The order will be in effect from 11:59 p.m., Friday, March 27, through Friday, April 10, 2020. Consistent with guidance from the United States Department of Homeland Security, the order exempts certain essential infrastructure and services, including agriculture and food.
After a full review of the order, CHS has determined that its operations fit within this exemption and we will continue to operate to provide essential products and services so cooperatives, retailers and farmers can plant and grow crops, raise livestock and bring the food they produce to market.
Below is a note from CHS to our customers in Minnesota.

Denise Montgomery is retiring January 12. Denise started with Ostrander Farmers Cooperative in 2010 and has been in Wykoff for her entire career with CHS. Denise, thank you for all that you have done for CHS and the Wykoff area. Over the years she has developed strong friendships with our farmer customers, which has supported our business. Developing relationships is as necessary as having a good bid, and she will be missed. Enjoy retirement, Denise!
