About Our Commercial Seed Company.
In 1987, long time friends, Ted Willard and Dennis McGlynn decided to put their agricultural and sales expertise together and go into business for themselves. Their goal was to create a line of high quality, chemical-free seed products, and provide them at a reasonable price to consumers. Conventional, Organic, Heirloom and Hybrid varieties are carefully chosen and tested for quality before they can
carry the NE Seed label. Since then, NE Seed has provided commercial growers and home gardeners with the seed varieties they need at the farm and at the table.
"Commercial Growers buy Seeds from us to satisfy the selection, yield and quality they are looking for."
In 2007, after 20 years in business for both companies, NE Seed and D. Palmer Seed merged. The result of this merger created NE Seed's sister company DP Seeds LLC. DP Seeds is a commercial hybrid vegetable seed company dedicated to providing seeds of the highest quality to commercial vegetable growers worldwide by developing close relationships with it's independent breeders. Home growers also can take advantage of the benefits of hybrid seeds such as improved disease resistance, increased uniformity and higher yields.
"NE Seed offers the vegetable, flower & herb varieties consumers expect to buy at the market, roadside stand or farmers market."
This merger has given both companies added strength in the market and provides the capabilities to directly ask our breeders to add something that is needed in your market. We are dedicated to bringing
you products that our growers and independent breeders have as their vision, not ours.
NE Seed will continue to market and be the liaison between you the grower and our breeding partners.
You can find DP Seeds vegetable seed varieties right in our printed catalog and on www.neseed.com.
Commercial growers and seed distributors can find DP Seeds, LLC. current and upcoming varieties on www.dpseeds.com.
"Most DP Seeds varieties have No Organic Equivalent and are available as Untreated seeds for many organic programs."

THE SAFE SEED PLEDGE
Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative,
we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.
The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately people and communities.
