Our extended Retail store hours will remain beyond the spring growing season. Those hours are:
We also would like to clarify, our former facility located at 79 Mountain Avenue in Troutville, will remain open to serve the needs of our core producer (needing bulk fertilizer, seed, crop protectants and petroleum products). This location will be referred to as our Crops Location moving forward. As the spring planting season comes to a close, our operating office hours will be limited, however our fuel, spray and fertilizer trucks will be available during the day. If you need services beyond the normal office hours, we ask that you call the new store directly. We will arrange to meet you at the Crops Location to serve your needs. As always, our trucks will remain in the field as long as there is work to be completed.
Feel free to ask any questions you may have to any of our sales staff. Change is difficult for everyone, so we are very thankful for everyone's faithful support as we make the transition to the new facility.
Southern States Roanoke Cooperative, proudly serving Farmers in the Roanoke Valley since 1935. Our new location is yet another seed that has been planted for our continued growth in the greater Roanoke Valley.
Southern States Roanoke Cooperative has proudly been serving needs of farmers in the greater Roanoke Valley since 1935. At one time, Roanoke Co-Op consisted of four retail locations: Downtown Roanoke, Salem, Troutville and our Crops Center in Wirtz (Franklin County). Our Board of Directors elected to close two of those facilities in the late 1990's in order to be more efficient and serve our customers more productively.
Currently there are two locations, the retail facility in Troutville and our Crops Center in Wirtz. Out of these facilities, we cover six counties (Roanoke, Botetourt, Craig, Franklin, Rockbridge, Bedford and Montgomery Counties). We also cover parts of the Greenbrier Valley of West Virginia
Our current retail facility in Troutville, Virginia was built in the late 1880's, and has seen several changes over the years. Southern States moved into the current facility in 1953. Since that time, the Botetourt County community has changed. With the sprawl of urban development in Southern Botetourt County, our agricultural marketplace changes every year. If Roanoke Co-Op is to survive to serve the needs of our core customer, our scope of business must change as well.
Our new 12,000 square foot retail facility at 8649 Cloverdale Road (Troutville) and 6,000 square foot full service Nursery and Garden Center is complete.
Our focus will always be on serving the needs of our core agricultural producer or part time farmer who may have a full time job away from the "farm". However we also realize we must expand our variety of available products and offer more customer friendly shopping hours to serve the changing needs of Botetourt and surrounding communities.
Some of the additions include the expansion of our landscape and homeowner product lines, the diversification of our pet and equine departments, and we proudly serve as a full service Nursery and Garden Center. We tentatively have plans to offer a "Farmers Market" for our members who want to market their farm raised/produced products seven days a week. Inside the showroom we will sell locally raised beef, lamb, chicken and other meat and animal products, raised by members of the Co-Op. It's a small way we can give back to the community we have served for many years.
