Main processing facility and lab

Main Plant and Seed Lab

In 1993, we built our first cleaning line at what is now our main warehouse and seed cleaning facility in Independence. As our principal processing facility, this site has expanded steadily to meet the needs of our customers and growers by efficiently processing the increasing number of acres under contract. Since 2015, this site has more than doubled in size and capacity. With the recent aquistion of more land, we have positioned ourselves for any needed future growth.
  • 2015 - Designed and built a state-of-the-art milling line specifically for processing hybrid spinach and other high-volume crops.
  • 2017 - Started our quality assurance lab for in-house testing and real-time quality checks.
  • 2017-2018 - Constructed a 40,000 sq. ft receiving and storage building which contains a unique high volume seed receiving line for processing raw crop from the field.
  • 2018 – Built a line dedicated to cleaning lettuce and other small-volume crops.
  • 2018 – Our lab was inspected by the Society of Commercial Seed Technologists and authorized to issue official reports of analysis under a Registered Seed Technologist.
Our facility is also a USDA/ODA organic certified processing and handling facility.
