FEATURED LEGACY

TNT Seeds

Hughes Hybrids brand seed was started 50 years ago, in 1967. Earl Hughes had been in the seed business since the late 1920’s producing public oat varieties and growing seed corn for companies on the east coast. In 1967, Hughes entered the single-cross hybrid corn market and created the Hughes Hybrids Brand. Today, the brand exists as part of the Burrus family of brands.

In 1967, several farmers partnered with Hughes as dealers to begin selling the new seed. The Moore family was one of those ini al partners. Tom Moore, Sr. ended up being a career-long user and seller of Hughes and later, Burrus seed. On a farm located a few miles west of Rockford, IL, Tom Moore fed beef cattle and raised crops. Over the years, Tom built a loyal customer base and earned numerous sales awards. One of the things Tom was known for was taking an active interest in the success of the younger farmers in his neighborhood. Tom was considered a friend by the Hughes family and a great business partner. Tom remained an active dealer until his passing at the age of 78.

At the me of his father’s passing in 2012, Tom Jr. and his wife Tami made the decision to continue the dealership, naming it TNT Seed. They have followed in Sr.’s footsteps, building the business into the top performing dealership in the Burrus northern sales region. Tom and Tami treat their dealership as a serious business and both actively pursue sales. TNT Seeds has also continued the family tradition of winning sales awards.

The Hughes and Burrus families are proud to be partnered with the Moore family for 50 years.
