About Universal Seed

Our History

Founder Nick Tichinin started Universal Seed Company in 1989. He recognized an opportunity in the Willamette Valley and went out on his own contracting and producing seed crops. With his drive and experience in agronomy Nick pushed forward to position Universal Seed to become the region's premier vegetable seed supplier. Since its inception the company has grown year over year built on its reputation of reliability and exceptional quality. Today we have a talented team of agronomists operating out of Oregon, California, and Washington who specialize seed production. We have an experienced seed processing team who operate out of our main processing plant in Independence Oregon and our satellite facility in La Conner Washington. Universal Seed has been proudly supplying the world with high quality vegetable seeds for the last 30 years.
In 2020 Universal Seed Company became Universal Seed LLC.
