About Us: Past, Present, and Future
Friederichs Seed Farm is located in the fertile lands of the Red River Valley. We are a privately owned company and have been in business for over 100 years specializing in registered seed sales and conditioning.
Focusing primarily on soybeans and wheat, we expanded our operation in 2008 with the purchase of an established seed facility near Foxhome, Minnesota—that is when Friederichs Seed, Inc. was born. This allowed us to broaden our product lineup to include sunflower, as well as update our facility—giving us the capability of processing food-grade products.
Quality, service and integrity have always been our number one priority. We continue to honor this by producing only the highest quality food, seed and feed products.
