About Us

We Are Elk Mound Seed

Elk Mound Seed Company is a family owned and operated business that dates back as far as 1874.  Being founded as a grain elevator in 1874, it was then known as Elk Mound Feed & Farm Supply.  As the agricultural landscape in the Chippewa Valley changed in the 1980s, Elk Mound Feed & Farm Supply began to transition itself into Elk Mound Seed, as we know it today.  We currently have a reach in all 50 US states, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, as well as several Canadian provinces.Since our transition into primarily a seed company, Elk Mound Seed has expanded our offerings that have established us as one of the dominant full-line seed suppliers in the Upper Midwest.  Throughout this transition, Elk Mound Seed has introduced several more product lines which includes wildflowers, native grasses, and products geared towards the wildlife enthusiast.  We also offer custom blending which has helped us separate us from the rest of the industry.    

Elk Mound Seed offers a wide variety of farm seeds and specializes in non-native seeds that are difficult to find. With a remodel in 2005 and 2017, the retail store now provides a larger display area for customers.  Elk Mound Seed also added warehouse space in 2013 and again in 2020, giving us almost a half an acre of facilities.
