Welcome to Woodheads Seeds

Woodheads Seeds Limited have now been trading for over 200 years. We are now Yorkshire's largest independent seed merchant.

We offer a complete service from supplying high quality certified seed to offering full buy back provision. In addition to this we offer cleaning of your own seed at our plant and we can supply fertilizer at competitive rates . We supply cereals, herbage, OSR, pulses, gamecover crops, root seeds and fertiliser. We buy milling and feed wheat, malting and feed barley, feed oats, OSR and linseed

We are able to set very high standards of seed production and processing through the relationships we have built with our growers. Many of our growers have been producing for Woodheads for more than 30 years.

All cereal seeds are grown by local growers with Fera controlled regulations administered in house.

Although 90% of our seed comes from Woodheads growers, we look for the best seed at the best value when we buy additional stocks. As members of PRISM (Private Retail Independent Seed Merchants) we are able to deal directly with Plant Breeders and we are often able to offer EXCLUSIVE varieties. It is also interesting to note that 20-25% of cereal seed trade in the UK is through PRISM members.

The Woodheads reputation is based on the quality of our seed output and on putting the needs of our customers first. We offer the highest quality cereal seed and superlative grass seed for both agricultural and amenity use All of our seed goes through rigorous DEFRA Standard inspections and is independently tested.

Woodheads Seeds Ltd are now a part of the Wynnstay Group of Companies, committed to value enhanced supply to the Agricultural Trading Industry.

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our customers and suppliers for their continued support and look forward to being able to provide a service for you in the coming years.
