About Friesen Seeds
Friesen Seeds Ltd. Is an independent seed company located in the Red River Valley just outside Rosenort, MB. The company began humbly in 1956 with brothers Jake and Ben, later joined by a third brother Frank, started cleaning and processing seed out of an old barn building on the farmyard. The business grew because of the need for local farmers to have their grain cleaned and buy seed for spring seeding.
Several years later the facility became too limited and the operation was moved across the yard to a bigger building, a two story barn that was modified to house the machines and a small office. A 70 x 40 warehouse was built in the early 70’s which was dismantled in 1986 to make room for a 70 x 100 building to keep up with the growing needs. In 2000, the old building had been outgrown, and a brand new seed plant was built for the seed cleaning operation followed by expanded office space in 2002. In 2016, an optical sorter was installed along with new indent machines and other upgrades to increase capacity, efficiency and improve quality standards. Friesen Seeds Ltd. continues to offer superior conditioning and processing of pedigreed seed along with seed treating, bagging and warehousing of bulk commodities.
Friesen Seeds Ltd. Is committed to offering the highest quality seed products and value added services through cleaning, processing and distribution. Friesen Seeds Ltd. strives to offer superior service to all their customers through strong relationships and hard work.
