Our Core Values
Our core values are at the heart of everything we do. We believe in putting our customer first, being tenacious and leading by example. To us, these are more than just words – it’s the MFA Oil Way.
As a cooperative, MFA Oil is controlled by our co-op members, who elect delegates at annual meetings each fall. These delegates, in turn, elect an eight-member Board of Directors to establish company policy and set operating guidelines.
The company’s executive team works in tandem with the Board of Directors to meet the energy needs of our co-op members and other customers.
How We Give Back
MFA Oil believes in giving back to the communities where we do business. The company supports local charities and causes directly and through the MFA Oil Foundation.
How to Become a Co-op Member
Are you a farmer, or do you own land used in agricultural production? Become a member of the cooperative to earn patronage dividends on qualifying purchases and vote for local delegates.
