Our Mission

Our mission at VDF Specialty Seeds is simply to produce the highest quality plant varieties possible. This begins with an exploration of the available genetic diversity offered by a given crop in search of superior traits highly desired by growers. Once identified these traits are introduced into robust plant varieties using traditional plant breeding strategies.


Our multi-stage variety development process involves evaluations over multiple years and locations to ensure durability of our product. It is of greatest importance that VDF Specialty Seeds varieties meet expectations of a dynamic market-place shaped by an increasingly informed consumer base.


A well-established sales and marketing team are in continuous dialogue with the food chain from growers to distributors to consumers. This information is fed directly into our research and development facilitating precisely tailored plant varieties to meet the demands of a constantly evolving market.
