Thirty years before the formation of the Department of Agriculture, it was in 1856 D. M. Ferry was just trying to earn some money for college at a little seed company in Detroit. Within 10 years he not only began to run the company but also named it after himself.

His big innovation was distributing seed packets. These packets were even tailored to the retailer's location, enabling Ferry to claim his seeds were "guaranteed to grow."

In 1930 the Ferry Company merged with C. C. Morse to become Ferry Morse Seed Company.
