Free phone consultation makes prairie management easy.
Expert advice by phone is a trademark of Prairie Seed Farms, where real prairie experts tend the phones every work day from 8 to 5. For every customer, planting advice and ongoing management tips are always just a phone call away. Backed by hands on experience in prairie management, our seed consultants can steer you away from problems before they ever happen. That way you can spend more time enjoying your prairie instead of wringing your hands over unforeseen complications.

Select seed makes planting easy.
Dirty, improperly cleaned/processed seed mixes can spell trouble at planting - like causing gaps in the seed distribution, plugging up the drill tubes and/or seed gushing out uncontrollably. To prevent that, your Prairie Seed Farms prairie seeds and CRP mixes are specially grown and dried, and really cleaned in special processing plants. Careful mixing and bagging of your order helps assure the proper seed texture you need for uniform seed flow in native grass drills. Expert planting instructions come with every order. You'll find that the fresh, clean seeds that Prairie Seed Farms delivers germinate rapidly and establish themselves quickly.

We help produce beautiful prairie habitats that are better for wildlife.
Better land management and bountiful wildlife start with the select seeds nurtured by Prairie Seed Farms. Each prairie mix is specially formulated to support wildlife throughout every stage of life and maximizing benefits of the intended conservation application. When you do things right from the beginning, it pays off for generations to come.
