Celebrating 35 Years
On August 13th, 1979, Simpson Seeds Inc. was incorporated. The founding directors were Jim, Tom, John and Greg Simpson.
The genesis of this company was driven by the need to find a way for the farm to survive poor commodity prices and to generate enough revenue to support the three brothers on the farm. I was working for Agriculture Canada as a primary products inspector for seed, feed, fertilizer, and pesticides. During my travels to many seed farms and seed plants, I noticed that the seed farms were some of the best farmers. This inspired me to think of becoming a seed grower and putting up a seed plant.
