About Us

BCA Products has been manufacturing lawn care fertilizers and ice melt for businesses in the Midwest for over 30 years. We service the professional turf markets and retail merchandisers through branded and private labeled products sold through distributors.

At BCA Products, we have designed our facility to allow the production, storage and ordering process for our lawn fertilizer and ice melt products to be seamlessly efficient while still manufacturing a quality product and providing excellent customer service.

Our facility has a 65’ x 150’ hoop storage shed to provide roughly 5,400 tons of raw product storage capacity. We are able to buy large quantities of professional turf grade bulk ingredients for our customers and maintain the quality of those products until they are blended into a bagged product. We are able to convey the bulk ingredients directly to our blending and bagging facility, saving time and increasing manufacturing efficiency. We have a state-of-the-art DW (decreasing weight) blender that utilizes separate load cells for each ingredient and weighs each ingredient as it is blended off every 15 seconds. Between our blender and production staff with an average 20 years of service, BCA Products guarantees quality and accuracy in producing bagged fertilizers for the retail market.Facility.png

For finished product, we built a 120’ x 300’ (36,000 sq ft) warehouse which can store approximately 125 semi loads of total finished product. We can make labor sensitive products 6-10 weeks in advance and have a whole season’s supply ready and waiting in our warehouse allowing us to process orders on a next-day basis if necessary. We can also take a customer’s full order ahead of the busy season and store it in our warehouse until the customer needs it delivered.Warehouse1.png Our warehouse features two new loading docks on the east side, enabling us to load two semis at one time. Our upgraded facility helps us gain the efficiency we need to remain competitive in the lawn fertilizer and ice melt industries. In addition to expanding our storage, we have also expanded our distribution to the 5 state area of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Iowa and northern Illinois.

BCA Products was purchased by River Region Cooperative and has since been branded a division of River Region Cooperative since 2007.
