WHO WE ARE

Play Video

IFCO Seedlings came under the ownership of the Mobley family in 2004.  The operations are headquartered in Moultrie, GA along with our sister company Mobley Greenhouses.  Our growth over that period of time has been nothing short of remarkable.  Our overall crop in 2004 totaled 15 million seedlings, while our overall crop in 2020 is just shy of 300 million seedlings.  Our success and growth are a direct reflection of the trust our clients have placed in us as their preferred seedling vendor and for that we are truly grateful.

IFCO Seedlings owns and operates five bareroot and four container nurseries located strategically across the southeast.  Our container nurseries are located in LA, GA, FL, and NC and our bareroot nurseries located in MS, AL, GA, and NC.   The broad nursery network is supported by a strong network of seed orchards that are setup for production and collection of high performing open pollinated and controlled pollinated selections.  The Mobley family continue to make significant investments into technology, seed producing complexes, nursery locations, and key personnel.  It is our great privilege to serve you and continue to work as partners in your reforestation efforts.
