    Here is a place to start:

    You would have to buy huge quantities in order to be considered for a wholesale program. Maybe you have needs, I don't know.

    Remember the growers have contracts with seed companies, so the seed in the farmer warehouses has a label already tagged on disposition. The larger companies in the Willamette Valley may direct you elsewhere to some wholesaler close to you. Barenburg, Ampac, and Pennington have very large operations, but they may reserve their supply to be mixed and bagged out for retail operations. Some buyers require millions of pounds, such as overseeding in forest lands. These buyers make the seeding operations of golf courses seem very small.
