Agricultural expertise...a passion for gardening...self-reliance.
These things have been part of our Oregon heritage since the first wagons rolled west across the vast American frontier. We have been a part of that connection to the land and all that springs from it since 1961, when a group of families in Culver, Oregon founded Round Butte Seed. At that time, we helped local farmers—mainly grass seed producers—market and sell their crops; we provided grass seeds, wildflowers, fertilizers and other products they needed for their farms.We still sell our Central Oregon neighbors' specialty grass seed crops and products originating in Central Oregon and you can still buy the highest-quality fertilizers, feed and agricultural chemicals.
A lot has changed since then, but our values remain the same. Today our company is a part of the Helena Chemical Company, which allows us to build on our foundation with the added benefit of a larger network of resources. Round Butte Seed's history is still with us, and we have retained our Culver staff--so you'll still recognize the faces and relationships you've come to know.
