NB Seed Growers' Co-operative Limited was started in 1947 and continues today with a board of directors consisting of 8 area farmer representatives which includes 3 directors.
NB Seed Growers' is the areas biggest feed mill operation where we create custom feed mixes for farms in and around the area.
We also buy and sell various locally grown grains such as Soybean, Corn, Wheat, Rye, Oats and Barley.
As well as the feed mill we operate a Country Store where we sell farm and animal needs, feed, work wear, wood shavings, wood pellets, hardware and pet supplies.
There were significant upgrades done to our grain terminal in 2015 with the addition of two new 800 metric tonne storage tanks, a new, larger grain dryer as well as the installation of a new wet tank. With the new additions we are able to receive and move more local product which is good for our economy as well as the farmers who grow in this area.
