About Us

Family-Run Business
IMG_5583.JPG
Specialty Seeds Ltd. is a family business owned by Will and Jean Van Roessel. We run the business with the help of our daughters, Jessie, Rowan, and Naomi. We have produced pedigreed seed since 1981, and it is the main focus of our farm.
Based in Bow Island, Alberta

Our farmyard is conveniently located at the north west corner of the town of Bow Island, Alberta. We have a truck scale and are set up to apply seed treatments to cereals and some pulse crops. Almost all of our farmland is irrigated. This allows us to grow high yielding crops and produce excellent seed quality most years.

Specialty Seeds grows and markets seeds distributed by SeedNet, Canterra Seeds, SeCan, and Alliance Seed. We also do contract seed multiplication for several seed companies.
