About Us

first the seed

Quality seeds are the foundation of human and animal life on earth. "First The Seed" expresses the basic premise that underlies the seed industry: there is no substitute for quality seed—a fact of life dating back to the dawn of civilization when the first post-nomadic people knew it as the difference between thriving and surviving.  Quality seed is essential for the growth and development of quality crops and an abundant, nutritious food supply.
