Pure Line Seeds, founded in 1948, originated as a regional supplier of garden pea seed. As demand grew, the small company in Moscow, Idaho extended their sales from northern Idaho into the surrounding Pacific Northwest and Canada. Pure Line Seeds expanded, moving their production, milling, warehousing and research operations to Warden, WA, one of the world’s premier seed producing environments.
Since their purchase of Pure Line Seeds in 2004, Susan and William Pfeil have directed the company’s global expansion. The Pfeils took a regional U.S. seed company focused mainly on the processing industry and helped it blossom into a multi-national seed production, breeder, broker, and distribution company for both the processing and fresh market industries. The companies understanding of the seed business and reputation as a reliable seed supplier has allowed the company to form strategic alliances with public and private organizations throughout the U.S. and abroad. These alliances benefit the market through improved genetics, expanded product lines, improved distribution systems and lower production costs.
Our research program in Washington has developed a number of proprietary varieties and includes many open varieties. Our research department is a combination of credible researchers who develop quality genetics through conventional non-GMO breeding practices.
Pure Line Seeds fresh market division is excited to increase and diversify their product line with the addition of thirty-four new vegetables. Today this division is responsible for distributorships operating in thirty-eight countries on five continents.
As a privately held US family owned company, Pure Line Seeds easily responds to the ever changing needs of its customers. This ability to respond quickly and effectively, our network of alliances and dedicated employees has positioned Pure Line Seeds to continue to be a leader in the vegetable seed industries for years to come.
