Moore Seed Farm is proud to serve our local community, hiring local youth to detassel seed corn since 1962.

Applications are available at the office or through the link below. They are also provided to local schools after spring break.

I came back to Moore Seed Farm year, after year, after year. I just love the family, they are some of the best people you will work for... Not only that, but I have loved agriculture my whole life, so it was really a dream come true... I could not have asked for a better place to have worked throughout my high school years.
