In 1967 Mike Pearce started a company trading in agricultural seed and the then emerging crop protection market. Mike operated from his garage, mixing his seed in a cement mixer on his drive and it is from this garage that the company grew.
In 1986 Mike was joined by Ken Tuffin and together they continued to grow the business. Today Pearce Seeds is still run by the Tuffin family who farm in the Blackmore Vale in Dorset.
Still a family company run by a farming family
Today the Pearce Group of Companies covers many more aspects of farming but still delivers the same high levels of service and expertise that has always been associated with the Pearce name.
