We are backing British farmers, with over 2,000 hectares of British farmland producing our grass seed. We love locally grown!
Our grasses are tried, tested and proven with British farmers (including at our own Cropvale Research Site in Worcestershire). We have close and longstanding relationships and collaborations with experienced seed growing specialists and production companies in the UK. Growing locally allows us to carefully evaluate the quality standards, keeping a close eye on crops, and establishing a strong collaboration and connection with experienced and trusted growers. Grass seed grower professionalism, combined with expert advice from our team assures excellent seed quality, continuity, and a good yield.
Alongside supporting the UK farming industry, Barenbrug also produce all their grass seed to the Higher Voluntary Standard (HVS), which is unique to the UK, guaranteeing a higher level of purity than European Union standards.
