Prior to 1989, Norman Kilmer was a dairy farmer and part time seed corn salesman who provided gift packets of sweet corn to farmers purchasing their field corn seed from him. The farm wives were interested in buying the sweet corn seed, so in 1989, Norman offered four varieties of sweet corn and one variety of shell peas. That fall, he sent out questionnaires on varieties of seed desired and Morgan County Wholesale was started. Along with the name change, the size and scope have also changed. The knickknacks, handmade wooden farm animals, and novelty items they originally handled have been dropped and Morgan County Seed is now the largest retail vegetable seed dealer and the largest wholesale dealer in Missouri. They now handle over 1000 varieties of seed and ship world-wide.
