Are you a graduating FFA member? Is college not in your plans?


SEED (Securing Experience + Employee Development ) is a two-year developmental program where recent high school graduates are hired full-time at Keystone to explore the diversity of our business resulting in a rewarding and fulfilling career in agriculture and energy. The program allows the graduating FFA member to explore our business and learn what areas interest them the most as a full-time employee. SEED is a boots-on-the-ground learning experience for someone who would rather get to work, than sit in class.
