The Hancock Seed Story
Richard and Francine Hancock, the founders of The Hancock Seed Company, originated the concept of “No Till” wildlife food plot, and Hancock Seed has been constantly introducing innovative ideas and custom seed solutions for our customers since our founding. Our true roots date back 4 generations when Francine Hancock’s grandfather, Harmon Townsend, settled in Florida from Poland and began to farm different varieties of seed.
We’ve grown tremendously since 1978: Richard added new buildings for processing our seed on site, warehouses for storage, and facilities for shipping the seed directly from the Hancock Family Farm in Dade City, FL. His son, Chris Hancock, pushed the innovation further by bringing Hancock Seed to the digital world, so that seed shoppers across the world can order the best we can offer.
Despite our commitment to progress, two things will always remain constant: Farmer Direct will bring you the highest-quality seed at the lowest prices, and we will provide helpful customer service to make sure you receive the ideal solution for your needs.
It has been 40 years since Richard Hancock began the company under this philosophy, and we plan to continue them for the next 40.
Hancock Seed is dedicated to delivering the best seeds possible to our customers. Hancock Seed grows and harvests many of our products, and we acquire the majority of the rest from other family farmers. All these seeds are processed, packaged and shipped from Hancock Farm. This helps us ensure that our high standards are met. Unlike much of the competition, we refuse to sell you a seed that was not gathered during the last harvest. You will always receive fresh product from Hancock.
Every seed we grow comes with 40 years of experience behind it...you can rest assured that all of our products are cultivated in a method that assures its potential for growth.
