Lounge Lizard worked on two websites for Cooperative Elevator Co.: a customer-facing site and a grower data portal. The approach for both websites was highly visual and dynamic. The imagery and overall aesthetics reflect the cooperative’s history and vision of fostering long-term relationships with customers and the community.

The two websites allow the over century-old Co-Op Elevator to catch up with technology trends and match the operations of modern agricultural cooperatives. The website will allow both customers and growers easy access to digital resources.

The customer-facing site effectively presents how the cooperative sources, handles, stores, and transports their products. The site highlights a unique operation that is distinct from the operation of corporate-owned farms. The grower portal empowers the cooperative’s grower-producers with market news and updates, market trends, weather forecasts, cooperative services access, and DTN text messages.
