Through the years, TFC has purchased and established subsidiary companies to provide additional services, extend TFC's reach into the other markets, and grow TFC's business. Though these companies are not operated as cooperatives, the revenue they generate and the services they provide strengthen the entire Co-op system. These subsidiaries are:

  • ADI (Ag Distributors Inc.)was formed in the fall of 1992 when TFC took over the lease at a wholesale fertilizer terminal on the Cumberland River in west Nashville. Today, ADI consists of two business units, ADI wholesale and ADI Agronomy. ADI wholesale is a provider of bulk and bag crop nutrients to independent retailers across the southeast.

    In 1995, ADI Agronomy was created by the purchase of a network of independent retail farm supply stores and fertilizer terminals in the Bootheel of Missouri. After TFC's purchase of several former Agriliance locations in 2009, ADI Agronomy now includes 12 locations in Missouri, Arkansas, and Kentucky. Reflecting the area's rich crop production of corn, cotton, soybeans, wheat, and rice, these facilities offer mainly seed, fertilizer, crop protection products, and custom application services. Recently, several of the retail stores have added a larger selection of products, including home, lawn, and garden supplies, hardware, and clothing.
  • Fort Loudoun Terminal Co., Inc. - The Fort Loudoun river terminal near Lenoir City was purchased in 1995 to help provide a steady, dependable source of fertilizer materials to farmers in East Tennessee. With a barge-unloading capability, the facility provides both river and rail access and additional storage of product.

  • Stockdale's LLC - Stockdale's: America's Rural Outfitter® is TFC's retail initiative, established in 2006 as a way to better serve the rural lifestyle market. Currently, TFC has Stockdale's® stores in Hixson and Covington, Tn and a third store in Bowling Green, Ky. These attractive, conveniently designed stores provide a comfortable, welcoming environment and a large selection of quality products for the home, farm, and family. Product lines include clothing and footwear, pet and horse supplies, lawn and garden items, feed, fencing, tools, outdoor equipment for hunting and camping, gifts and home decor, and much more.
