About Us


Certified and pedigreed seed

We specialize in the production of high-quality seed and outstanding service. Our process begins with choosing the varieties that will benefit our customers the most. We grow all of our seed under irrigation on a longer more diverse rotation than most , which means greater purity of seed and a better outcome for your crops. We also clean and condition our seed to remove impurities. The final product is a high-quality, certified and pedigreed seed that can go right from our yard into your soil.


Because we’re farmers, too.

Our family has been farming in the Vauxhall area for three generations. We understand tight margins and challenges of the business and have learned the hard way that good seed at a good price can make a big difference. Growing it ourselves helped us learn the best ways to produce high-quality seed adaptable to variable growing conditions and certified for purity. Making that seed available to our fellow farmers at a competitive price, along with our outstanding service, means a lot to us. As we like to say around here, all our friends are farmers, and all farmers are our friends. We take care of our farmers like we take care of our friends. It’s that simple.


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.
