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.
