Since 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. 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.

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.

We used to be a seed cleaning business in our earliest days. We quickly evolved to offer products during the 1950s and 1960s. As of now we are under new management and always expanding our product lines to meet your needs. The Old Elevator and Donley Seed have strived to do one thing, and do one thing only; provide the highest quality product at an affordable price to you.

You have heard our background, and we would love to hear yours! Come in and be greeted by our mascot, Otis, and meet the rest of The Old Elevator team!
