Coming soon... A set of pages dedicated to the history and current use of these amazing machines in use for over 120 years packing seeds all over the world.

In the meantime if you want to purchase replacement measuring scoops for your machine, we have them for sale!

We pack a lot of our seed by hand, but we also pack a lot using our two "Brown Bag Filling Machines" dating back to the 1890's. These incredible devices have been packing seeds ever since and this is a series of pages devoted to their history and use.
