Our Name

Agriculture has always been about two things: land and the people who work it. Nothing in farming is possible without good, healthy soil—just as nothing is possible without strong, forward-thinking farmers to make it productive. Working as one, we will carry our heritage forward and step into the future with confidence and vitality.

This is where we come from, why we are here and how we will create a better tomorrow. We are the land and the land is us.

Together, we are Landus Cooperative.


Our Logo

With a big, bold font and stacked words, the logo communicates strength, stability, authority and size. The logo mark depicts rows coming together, creates movement and emphasizes the “us” in the name through placement and color.
