Three simple steps, backed by generations of experience and the pride that comes from an independent, American family-owned company.  This is what Cornelius Seed customers have come to expect, year in and year out.

We take pride in the seed we produce, condition, package and deliver. There are no short cuts to the high quality that leads to Profit.

We take pride in being an Independent, American family-owned company.  Our name is on the bag.  The fifth generation of Cornelius’ are managing Cornelius Seed.  We look forward to the day when the sixth generation joins our team.

We take pride in being a farm family, just like you take pride in yours.  We were honored to receive the Heritage Farm Award at the Iowa State Fair in 2021 recognizing the home place being in the Cornelius family for over 150 years.

We take pride in our customers who put faith in us to help them be profitable.

We take pride in those same customers who repeat with us each year which drives us to do the best that we can.

Above all, we are thankful for the business you do with us and we, at Cornelius Seed, do not take that lightly.
