About Us

Owner/operator, Larry Penner, is a third-generation farmer in charge of Penwest Seeds—a seed farm located 2km north of Three Hills, AB that has been in this location since 1988. Penwest Seeds is strategically located close to two large inland grain terminals (Cargill and Viterra), and the Three Hills and District Seed Cleaning Plant.

Penwest Seeds aims to help customers Seed for Success by selling locally grown, top quality pedigree seed. Check out our tried and true varieties, alongside new varieties we believe will blossom on the prairies.

Our History

Penwest Seeds is a family-owned and grown seed company with deep roots in the agricultural industry. Growing commercial grain and seed for more than 30+ years has given us the experience and knowledge to know what works—and what doesn’t. We always keep an eye on profitability through the lens of sustainability to continue growing with the support of our valued customers. Throughout the years, Penwest Seeds has seen numerous changes in agriculture, yet one thing has remained constant: the key to growing a crop and harnessing its potential starts with picking a seed that will give a consistent proven performance. This is why we produce and sell certified seed—to give our clients the best chance at fully harnessing that potential.

OUR VISION

Penwest Seeds will strive to improve agriculture by providing customers with a strong selection of certified and top quality products at competitive prices. Our knowledgeable and qualified staff are always happy to assist you.
