Bringing people together when we have to be apart

computer screen video call technology

The farmers, businesspeople and other residents who founded our cooperative knew technology could help them keep in touch with others near and far. For decades, technology has helped them create and maintain these essential human connections.

Building our phone network connected the people of our communities like never before.

Today, I think those founding members would be amazed at the ways we use the technology highlighted in this issue to stay connected.

Thanks to the broadband network Farmers and Federated provides, we upload photos of our gardens, craft proj ects or baking creations to share with friends and families within our community or around the country.
