NativeSeed Group & Great Valley Seed Form Strategic Alliance to Supply Native Seed for Unprecedented Demand in California


CARPINTERIA, Calif., Dec. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- NativeSeed Group (NSG) and Great Valley Seed Company (GVS), renowned commercial native seed production and conservation entities, are excited to announce a significant strategic alliance. This collaboration unites NativeSeed Group, whose integrated native seed companies have serviced North America for over 50 years with over 4,000 irrigated farm acres, and Great Valley Seed Company, started by Bowles Farming Company, a multi-generational diversified farming company. Together, they are poised to play a pivotal role in California's large-scale conversation and pollinator health initiatives.

NativeSeed Group and Bowles Farm are committed to delivering on conservation initiatives in California.

Key Highlights of the Alliance:

A Commitment to Delivering Value:

The alliance between NativeSeed Group and Bowles Farm is more than a business venture; it's a two-fold commitment to delivering on the promise of the upcoming unprecedented conservation initiatives in California. This partnership is cementing an ongoing commitment to deliver value for stakeholders across the conservation spectrum, from public and private landowners to environmental groups and governmental agencies.

A Ready Partner for Today's Conservation Challenges:

"We've been investing heavily in our capacity to collect, produce, and carry native seeds serving complex, large-scale conservation in California and the West for over five decades," said Rob Wendell, NativeSeed Group's Chief Executive Officer. He further added, "In recent years, with the issuance of the National Seed Strategy and, more recently, the National Academies' Assessment of Native Seed Supply, we've heard from our key stakeholders loud and clear: it's time to double down on our commitment to ensure the right seed is available at the right time, to service the unprecedented demand that is upon us. This Strategic Alliance is poised to deliver right now, in a big way." 

"We are here to deliver today," states Doug Iten, General Manager of GVS. "Our combined expertise, resources, and dedication position us uniquely to fulfill the native seed and plant needs of California. We are ready to supply the current and future native seed needs of projects throughout the state."
