The MERL Archives contain an array of records of agricultural and rural co-operative organisations. Some of the larger archives, such as Berks, Bucks and Oxon Farmers Ltd and Landscape Settlement Association contain records of company activities. You can see these listed below.
Within these, and other smaller archives, are examples of material from other co-operatives not listed below. If you are interesting in material from a particular co-operative, you can use our online search catalogue to search for their name and identify if we have any related material.
