Capital Credits Notification:

Farmers Telephone Company, Inc. is in the final stages of paying out the capital credits on account for the fiscal years 1981 through 1985. If you have not received a capital credits check earlier this year, and feel that you may be owed funds associated with these years for service while we were a coop; please call the office at 970-562-4211 for further information.


Billing Fee Restructure Notification:

You spoke, we listened! Farmers has recently implemented a new offering for on-line payments to meet the requests of our customers; however, the fee structure was not well received. We have listened to you, our valued customers, and have simplified the process by moving to a flat fee per transaction of $1.50. Farmers absorbs the balance of all associated costs. We hope this brings you comfort knowing that we truly appreciate our customers! Thank you for your support. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Let Farmers connect you to a world of possibilities.
