HISTORY

In 1946, Pratum, Oregon farmers founded a Co-Op to grow prime Willamette Valley grass seed. 75 years later, Pratum Co-Op’s grain elevator is a landmark, and Mountain View Seeds varieties reap the benefits of that outstanding farmer network.​ MVS was created in 1998 to manage mounting seed demand for Pratum’s private variety production.
