DELAWARE, Ohio – Heritage Cooperatives announces the sale of their share of Lena Ag Center,

Harvest Land and Heritage, previously Champaign Landmark, entered into a joint venture for Lena Ag
in the early 2000’s. Lena Ag Center, which has been managed by Harvest Land since the beginning
of the joint venture, provides agronomy products and services and liquid propane to farmers and
residences in the eastern Miami and western Champaign counties.
