History — Rohrer Seeds Skip to content


In 1919 Woodrow Wilson was the president of the United States, postage stamps cost 2 cents, a gallon of gas sold for 6.9 cents, dial telephones were introduced and P.L. Rohrer started his seed business with the introduction of the company's first catalog.

In 1923, P. L. Rohrer expanded the business with the purchase of the company's first building in Smoketown, PA. Rohrer's was now able to serve customers via a retail store, truck deliveries and mail order.

Rohrer Seeds has strived to constantly offer quality seeds at a fair price while maintaining that good old-fashioned service that PL Rohrer started nearly 100 years ago.Rohrer Family

Since that time, four generations of the Rohrer family have helped establish and maintain a family seed business in the heart of Lancaster County, PA with Doug Rohrer as current President.
