Developed here in our own native seed nursery and rugged tall grass prairie remnants over 20 years ago, we constantly strive to improve their utility. Ongoing research and customer feedback from harvesting over 250 species in more than 20 countries has helped us provide the best harvesting equipment anywhere specifically targeted to the needs of conservation and restoration professionals, landowners and resource management agencies. As ecologists, we know the importance of biodiversity and the crucial need to conserve local genetic stocks for the future. Our ruggedly-built machines are the only commercially-produced seed harvesters specifically for collecting your own local native seed.
