A message from our founder

Mr David Brown

(Extracts from a message marking the 50th anniversary of the business in 1958.)

May I take this opportunity of thanking sincerely all those who have patronized my firm in the past fifty years. I commenced business on my own account in January 1908, convinced that there was room for a Seed Firm who would make “Quality” priority Number 1.

Growers require to have confidence in the seeds they purchase, and I feel satisfied that the firm of D.T. Brown & Co LTD., has established that confidence and that it will always be the endeavour of the firm to maintain and strengthen this in the future.
