Our location in the valley region of Pennsylvania is a good area to select for disease pressure while addressing the needs of Northern regions.

 

The Pine Creek staff has good knowledge of planting and monitoring various types of forage and cover crops for trials.

 

The location is especially convenient for trials and training in conjunction with Penn State University and Cornell University. Pine Creek is also convenient for crop demonstrations, meetings and field days for farmers, depending on the specific needs.

Online Marketing

If nothing else, the recent pandemic and its restrictions underscore the need for customers, including farmers, to reach their suppliers online. The personal touch will never go out of style, but when it comes to speed, efficiency, best use of time, and crossing a task off of your to-do list, doing business online makes a world of sense.

 

For seed companies, this can mean customer expectations must be met in order to stay competitive. Pine Creek Seed Farm is committed to being at the forefront as seed buyers continually become more comfortable with placing online orders.

 

The point is that we can help represent your seed brands, especially in the East and Southeastern regions of North America.

 

We think talking about the possibilities for your seed company is worth the time.

Even the most efficient online marketing system requires knowledgeable staff to answer, for example, agronomic, variety selection, and pricing questions in real time.

 

Pine Creek Seed Farm intends to excel - on behalf of your seed company - at the techniques driving the move to online purchases by farmers.

Technology may  change, but the basic needs of customers remain the same.

 

Great products at a reasonable price, and customer service to back up every sale.
