MNL produces premium, local origin native grass, sedge, and wildflower seed on our production farms near Foley, Glyndon, and Lonsdale, Minnesota. Meticulous attention is paid to ensure seed is locally sourced from remnant Minnesota prairies and grown, cleaned, and tested to the highest standards. Much of our seed is certified “Yellow Tag” by the Minnesota Crop Improvement Association, which verifies local origin. Yellow tag verification assures you’re purchasing clean, viable seed. MNL also strives to produce seeds of otherwise unavailable species that contribute unique or valuable ecological benefit.
