McGregor Seed and Pendleton Grain Growers are joining forces.
PGG Seed's long history of providing quality cereal, pulse and specialty seeds to growers across Oregon combined with The McGregor Company's history in the seed business stretching back over 25 years will further buoy the standard for quality seed across the Pacific Northwest. With the two businesses joined together growers can expect expanded access to varieties and the same quality and friendly service that has been a hallmark of PGG Seed for decades.
“The McGregor Company has a long commitment to growers in the Pacific Northwest and in Oregon. We are thrilled to be able to shepherd the long history of quality seed production which PGG Seed has been known for over 50 years” said Ian McGregor, President of The McGregor Company. “For us The Pacific Northwest is home and we look forward to continuing to grow for the future of PNW Agriculture. Our mission will be to continue to provide top quality seed, great service and be in the forefront of future innovations” added Mike Anderson, McGregor Seed Manager.
The McGregor Company will continue to operate the PGG Seed plant at McKennon Station under the PGG Seed name with all current employees. “PGG has always been committed to its producers, its employees, and the Co-Op Members. We feel certain the merger of our seed business with a quality organization like the McGregor Company will continue that legacy well into the future.” says Tim Hawkins, PGG Board Chairman.
