Since 1928, Stone Seed has provided local expertise and high-performing seed products to help maximize yield potential. Learn more about our rich history in Illinois.

Rolland Stone and his father founded Stone Seed to produce a small quantity of seed corn for their own farm. They offset production costs by selling leftover seed to friends and neighbors and began working on hybrids with the University of Illinois.

In 1960, Rolland’s son, Richard, took over the business and began working with other companies to produce larger quantities of their seed. Throughout the years, Stone Seed began developing seed under their own brand. And in the 2000s, they began working with Monsanto’s American Seeds, Inc. to develop top-performing genetics and traits.

A lot has changed since we first opened our doors in 1928. What hasn’t changed is that Illinois is still one of the most important farming regions. Stone Seed has been proudly supporting Illinois with high-quality products and dedicated service for nearly 100 years and will continue to long into the future.​​​
