Do you have a passion for farming, livestock, and a high-forage animal diet consisting of mostly homegrown forages? Are you a motivated salesperson? Do you enjoy spending time with your customers and educating them about your products? Then we want you on our team!
At the core of our sales philosophy is “educational marketing and consultative selling,” not just a sales pitch. We believe that providing accurate information to help the customer turn our seeds into a productive crop is just as important as making the sale, and the essence of earning customer loyalty. The combination of high-quality products and technical support is what sets King’s apart, which is why we will provide you with the training needed to make you a resource your customers can count on.

We currently serve the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region from Maine to North Carolina, but are looking for expansion further south as well as within our current territory. We strive to provide each dealer with an adequate sales territory to maintain a thriving dealership. As such, many regions are already well-covered, but there are still many underserved areas that will benefit from new dealers. Please contact the Regional Coordinator for your area to see if you are eligible to apply for a dealership based on your region.
