Farmer Direct is a big part of the Hancock Seed way, meaning that the fewer steps between your seed and the farmer who grew it, the better. Ask anyone who swears by “Farm-to-Table” dining and they will agree!
Hancock is combining the thought processes behind Farmer Direct and Farm-to-Table in the form of our vegetable seeds! There’s no doubt that buying vegetables directly from a farmer at a local market is a delicious option, but there’s an extra ounce of pride when you grow it yourself. And pride is a “secret ingredient” that can’t be replicated!
Hancock Seed has long sold Corn, Radishes, Turnips, Beets, and Microgreens among our home vegetable offerings. We’re proud to announce that we’ve added five more products in the “Vegetable Seed” category!

We offer several varieties of corn, but this is the first to earn the “Hancock” name! What sets Hancock’s Jackpot apart?
This corn satisfies on three levels: taste, size, and length.
First, this will be the sweetest, best-tasting corn you’ve ever tasted. You may need to think twice before you put butter on it! Secondly, there will be plenty to go around. These ears average between 9 and 10 in. long. And finally, this corn just plain looks good! White and yellow corn cobs that look like they’re right out of your dreams.
If you dream about corn, I guess. Well, you might after trying Hancock’s Jackpot Bi-Color Corn!
The options are endless for what you can do with Hancock’s Bush Beans. Butter them with garlic, add some Mexican spices for across-the-border flair, or sweeten them with cinnamon. Here’s an expert tip, though: They taste delicious by without any help! Just rinse and snack!
This is also the go-to option if you’re interested in canning or freezing. Plant in succession throughout the year and you’ll have multiple harvests!
Oh…and share your recipes if you come up with a good one!
Our Bush Lima Beans are another great option for those looking to can or freeze their homegrown vegetables. This product also offers a variety of ways to eat them, based on harvest time. Pick them while their plump for tender “Green Shellies,” or let them dry on the vine for “Dried Limas.” You don’t earn a nickname like “butterbean” if you’re not delicious!
If you’re a Southerner, you already know all about Okra. Whether it’s fried or sprinkled over stewed tomatoes and rice, this member of the mallow family is delicious. The spineless pods on this variety make them especially easy to pick. This is another option that will can or freeze nicely for later consumption. If you pick continuously throughout the season, you’ll promote reproduction and, lucky you, more Okra!
These greens are another popular dish in the South, and can be added to meat dishes, sandwiches, or used as the base for an alternative salad. Granted, humans aren’t the only species that are scrambling to get at our Mustard plants. This veggie makes a winning addition to any food plot, from deer to game birds, to domestic chicken patches!
