At the heart of Grainseed Ltd’s operations is our state of the art processing plant in Eye at the Norfolk/Suffolk border. Here we have the facilities necessary to clean all major species of seed grown on farm today, from oilseed rape and linseed to cereals and pulses.

We are able to clean and certify early multiplication stocks, commercial seed stocks and farmers’ own stocks thanks to our extensive infrastructure and years of experience. Our qualified staff are able to mix and blend gamecover seeds and arable silage.

Our plant also has the inbuilt capability for dealing with large quantities of grain, guaranteeing a rapid turnaround while still ensuring seeds are cleaned to the standards required for commercial premiums.
