Working at Johnny's
Johnny's Selected Seeds is a rapidly growing, mail-order and web-based, employee-owned seed company located in rural Central Maine. We have a certified organic farm in Albion, Maine, with offices in nearby Winslow and Fairfield. We're just across the Kennebec River from the town of Waterville, home of Colby and Thomas Colleges and the Maine International Film Festival. If you're an outdoors enthusiast (fishing, hiking, skiing, boating, biking, and more), you'll love this area; Johnny's is situated about halfway between the coast and the western mountains, and we're 90 minutes from Moosehead Lake and Maine's unspoiled north woods.
Johnny's offers a great benefit package: Health Insurance (HMO, PPO, HRA & HSA), Dental Insurance, Life Insurance, Short- and Long-term Disability, Medical and Dependent Care Reimbursement, Tuition Reimbursement, and 401K — and we are also proud to say that we are 100% employee owned!
Johnny's culture is very agriculturally driven, as would be expected of a seed company. Many of our employees are avid gardeners and/or commercial farmers.
