OUR HISTORY

In 1921, Paul Donley established Donley Seed after returning home from World War 1. What started out as a very small business very quickly grew to a successful operation, evolving to a seed cleaning business known as The Old Elevator. In the 1950s and 1960s, we began offering more and more products, and began leading the feed and seed industry. As of now, we are under new management, and we are constantly looking to grow and expand our product lines to meet your needs.

OUR PASSION

Since our upbringing in 1921, we have resided in Ashland, Ohio, taking pride in being one of the most knowledgeable source for state tested seeds and feeds, and more importantly, fully understanding our customers. Anyone could make good seed, feed, and natural meats, but what has set us apart from our competition since 1921 is our understanding of our customers. You need healthy options to feed your family and pets. You deserve the best looking lawn. Your livestock are so much happier grazing on a pasture from natural seeds. Unlike many other stores, we truly know why their happiness – and yours – is important. We live on the farms that produce our seeds, feed, and meats, and take tremendous care to produce healthy, natural products for your families and ours. We also pride ourselves in helping and supporting our local community. We host American Red Cross Blood Drives several times throughout the year, and also support the junior fair livestock auctions at the Ashland County Fair.
