Farming is one of the oldest professions in the history of mankind, and the most basic element of farming is the seed. It’s easy to get jaded when, as a species, we’ve been putting seeds into the ground for more than 100,000 years and getting delicious returns from the soil.
Hancock Seeds has never been one to fall into a rut. That’s why the Hancock family has been working for more than four generations to improve our methods, as well as working since 1978 to offer our seeds at the best prices through Farmer Direct pricing. Over the years, our blending and breeding has resulted in the best seeds you can find. There were still improvements to be made, however, as the Hancock family entered the 21st Century.
Chris Hancock (affectionately known around here as the “Seed Man”) knew that the internet was a revolutionizing force for businesses of all varieties, including agriculture. Unfortunately, he realized, the World Wide Web of 2006 didn’t reflect that.
And so HancockSeed.com was born.
It was a natural progression. There was a point in history when farmers could only buy seeds by driving up to the marketplace. Hancock Seed, as founded by Chris’s father, took phone calls to make orders. The next step was to order seeds online.
Staying ahead of the curve has paid off. We do business with farmers across the United States, and are able to offer photos, detailed descriptions, production guides and other information for our customers to consider at their convenience.
We realize that a website, no matter how attractive, can only be as successful as customers allow it to be. That’s why we’re celebrating HancockSeed.com’s 11th Birthday by rewarding all of our friends and clients who use it!
From March 10 through March 31, customers purchasing Hancock Brand seeds via HancockSeed.com will receive 11 percent off of their order. This applies to online orders only.
Thank you for using HancockSeed.com. The agricultural industry is not stagnant, and neither is the way it does business. Whatever the next big trend is after the internet, you can bet that Hancock Seed will be there.
