NuWay-K&H Cooperative is a local, member-owned, customer-focused company supplying agronomy and energy products and services. With the main office based in Clear Lake, IA, principle place of business in Trimont, MN and operations based in Welcome, MN; NuWay-K&H Cooperative employs over 85 people full time and 50 seasonal who serve in excess of 5,500 farm and non-farm customers.

As opposed to a private business, which focuses on generating profits for shareholders, a cooperative is owned and controlled by the customers it serves and operates for their benefit. The cooperative provides goods and services needed and requested by its customers who, at the end of the day, divide any profits.


Our Leaders: Visionary and Grounded in Reality

NuWay-K&H Cooperative is controlled by a board of 13 member-elected directors and 1 appointed advisory director that makes policy decisions, approves major expenditures of capital and hires a President/CEO to guide the company’s day-to-day operations. Chosen for their vision, these directors realize the harsh realities of the agricultural industry.

Our Team

Giving Back: A Value Central to NuWay-K&H Cooperative’s Culture

NuWay-K&H Cooperative provides for and gives back to the communities in which our members and our employees live and work. As a major employer offering good-paying jobs and career opportunities, we’re a force for good—attracting local talent to stay and raise their families and new talent to settle here.
NuWay-K&H Cooperative is also an engaged corporate citizen, sponsoring and participating in local government, education, service organizations and events with the aim of preserving and enriching lives. 
Each year, NuWay-K&H Cooperative participates in and donates to many community events such as parades, 4-H achievement days and county fairs. We purchase thousands of dollars in premiums at livestock auctions held during these events, supporting the important role 4-H plays in the developing future ag leaders.
“We’re not just good corporate citizens. Our members and employees donate hundreds of volunteer hours as local firefighters and EMTs, scout leaders, team coaches, town council members and church deacons—to name a few roles. We’re proud of the way our people give back to their communities.”
Whether corporately or individually, we do everything with generosity, integrity and an unswerving commitment to the towns and cities in which we live and work. This dedication stems from the core values of NuWay-K&H Cooperative's Brand Vision: “We want to be a diverse partner to you and your community, delivering exceptional value through knowledge and innovation.”
