About Acira

Farmer’s Mutual Telephone Company and Federated Telephone Cooperative are pioneers in bringing state-of-the-art technology to our rural communities. In fact, Farmers and Federated were among the first rural telecom cooperatives to provide fiber optics to every cooperative member, literally plowing the way for advancing technology — nationwide.

While our services continually evolve, our foundation of innovation remains. That’s why we formed Acira, creating a partnership to bring the best communication, technology and smart services to our entire community.
