RDR Grains and Seeds is proud of what it has accomplished over the years and stands out from the competition by offering pedigreed seeds and organic grains.
Founded in 1962 by Raymond and Roger Proulx, the business began producing pedigreed seeds in a barn. In the 70s and 80s, several investments were made to improve the efficiency of the facilities in order to better serve its customers. Around that time, the company abandoned milk production to concentrate on field crops.
In 1996, David Proulx, son of Raymond Proulx, joined the business. The willingness to continue serving their customers to the best of their abilities led to the expansion of the plant and facilities and improvement of the work methods. The facilities underwent major expansions in 1999, 2005 and 2010.
In order to meet today's agricultural challenges, the business added organic grains and seeds to its mission in 2000.
