SB&B Story

In the Beginning

A FATHER, 2 SONS & A GREAT FRIEND

Our grandfathers unofficially sowed SB&B over 100 years ago. They settled near a farm in Casselton, North Dakota, and began specializing in identity preservation long before it was an industry term. They focused on seed production and direct sales to local farmers, which helped them capture premium markets and fulfill the needs of their customers and neighbors.
