Welcome to CISCO Farm Seed

You're probably here because you're looking for information on cover crops, pastures, alfalfa, or some sort of emergency forage. You've got ground to cover, soil to build, hay to make, or animals to feed.

You're in the right place. Scan down below to learn more and to meet our agronomy staff. 

This is a picture of CISCO's demonstration farm, which has over 350 individual plots. It's located just outside of Bristol, IN.

If you're looking for cover crop info, just click right here to get started on your journey. If you're looking for forages (hay, pasture, summer annuals), click right here to begin your journey.

If you're totally confused or have a question, just click here to contact us.   We will answer you the best we can and steer you in the right direction. 

We also offer electronic versions of both our Cover Crop Guide and our Forage Guide. You can download a copy of those here


The CISCO Farm Seed website is owned and operated by The CISCO Companies, located  in Indianapolis, IN. We distribute seed across a five state area. We've got sales guys in the area and a couple of forage agronomists with letters behind their names. 

We are dedicated solely to the "small seed" part of your farming operation, namely hay, pasture, summer annuals, and cover crops. 

Again, if you have any questions, just click here to contact us.  

No questions? Keep scrolling down to meet our two agronomists.
