Our Story

In 2005, Blue River Organic Seed was established by a few individuals with a common vision.  They wanted to give organic farmers an opportunity to stay true to their organic farming practices and principles without having to sacrifice performance.  

Co-founder, Maury Johnson was the driving force behind the development of NC+ Organics, a division of NC+ Hybrids.  Johnson's continued drive and vision, combined with the long-time corn research and development expertise of the other founders formed the Blue River team.  With a clear mission in mind, Blue River set out to provide high quality seed and exceptional genetics specifically for organic farming environments across the nation.

To further that mission, Blue River has joined the Farmer's Business Network family of seed brands.  FBNSM  creates unprecedented value for farmers by providing transparent data used to make input, financing, and whole farm decisions for improved return-on-seed investment and an overal healthier bottom line.
