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.
