Our company is proudly celebrating its 96th birthday this year. Since Paul Donley established the operation in 1921 upon his return home from World War I, The Old Elevator and Donley Seed have been leading the seed and feed industry throughout the Great Lakes region.

From our earliest days as a seed cleaning business, to our rapid product offering evolution during the 1950’s and 1960’s, through our new ownership and expanding product lines of today, The Old Elevator and Donley Seed have strived to do one thing, and do one thing only…and that’s provide the highest quality product at an affordable price to our loyal clientele.

We pride ourselves in helping and supporting the local community, especially the youth. We host American Red Cross Blood Drives several times throughout the year, as well as, supporting the junior fair livestock auctions at the Ashland County Fair.

We do things right, so we can shake your hand and look you in the eye with a smile the next time you come in and visit us. Your patronage is our reward!
