At 1st Choice Seeds, we are focused on serving our customers and providing them with seed that is 1st in Seed Quality. We sell hybrid seed corn, soybean seed, private label seed wheat, and cover crop seed. We are a business partner for farmers who are focused on raising the most bushels possible per acre. But we also like to have fun!

Throughout the year, we plan several events for team members, dealers, and customers! Our Seed Specialists attend farm shows, we typically host four different field days, an annual Christmas party is held for our local customers, and more! One of my favorite events is our team Kick-Off.

Customers toured the test plot during our 2020 Ohio Field Day at David Woodruff‘s Farm in College Corner.

Every year, we host a two-day event for our Seed Specialists, Office Staff, and Production Team to “kick-off” the next season. Of course the event is planned around our sales meeting to reflect on last season, learn about new products, and build our relationship with team members, but we add some fun to the event for our team and their families.

We love that family is included and that we get to be part of the yearly kick-off each year. Our favorite part is that there is always something fun planned for the kids.” – Crystal & Joey Benningfield

This past week, our team gathered at Brown County State Park in Nashville, IN for our 2022 Team Kick-Off. It was a great time for our team to bond with each other, and our families, to prepare for the next season.

Our team Kick-Off at the Abe Martin Lodge, July 2021.

We always enjoy getting to be together as a family, even for a work meeting. We also like visiting with the other team members’ families. During the meeting, the children and I were glad to walk trails, visit a fire tower, catch critters in the creek with a park naturalist, and do other park and nature center activities.” – Hope Longwell

Upcoming events include our annual Field Day Friday in Rushville, IN on August 27th and our Ohio Field Day on September 1st. Our Kentucky Field Day will be scheduled for September as well. As always, updates can be found on our Facebook page and invites will be mailed. Stay tuned for more events!
