Certified, pedigreed seed

Our certified, pedigreed seed is grown under irrigation, treated, processed, handled and transferred with state-of-the-art equipment right here on our farm. 


For your best crops

We’ve made it our business to understand how things grow best on the prairies of Western Canada and to choose varieties that will help our customers achieve their best crops. Our services take care of everything from conditioning to processing and transfer. The final product is a high-quality, certified, pedigreed seed that can go right from our yard into your soil. We also sell whole to fellow seed growers to help support the growth of our industry in Western Canada.


And all farmers are our friends.

We know that the best crops start with the best seeds, but as third-generation farmers, there’s more to it than that. It’s also about trust, good growing practices, a fair price and customer service that only another farmer would know how to offer. We’re proud to farm the land in southern Alberta and proud to work closely with other farmers who are as passionate about growing as we are.

Services that cover the whole process

We choose the best seed varieties and grow them under irrigation on a two-year rotation to increase purity and reduce unwanted volunteers. We also clean and condition all products to remove impurities without damaging seed, using grain conveyors for pulses and smooth wall seed bins for grains. You can pick your seed up on-farm using our truck scale and transfer equipment or contact us to arrange shipping at a reasonable cost if you live farther away.

Frequently Asked Questions

The term ‘pedigreed’ means that the seed’s ancestry can be traced back to the plant breeder who developed it. When seed is pedigreed, it ensures specified germination for consistent growth and healthy stand and that seed sizes will be consistent for planting and crop performance. Pedigreed seed is certified through the Canadian Seed Growers Association (CSGA).

Certified seed is recognizable by the blue tag of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). The blue tag means that both the seed and crop have been inspected by a third-party agency, produced by a certified Canadian seed grower, passed the quality assurance requirements for varietal purity, germination and freedom from impurities and is ready for commercial use.

If you’ve been using farm-saved seed for years, you might be wondering why – or if – you should invest in certified seed. It’s a fair question. However, investing in certified seed means you’re not just getting a better product. You’re also investing in the research and development of new and advanced seed varieties. This difference brings value to your farm and gives you more choices about variety. It also generates jobs in agriculture and stimulates the local and national economy.
