Our History

In 1964, Ramsey Seed Company in Manteca California was founded by Bill Ramsey.  The Ramsey Seed Company was family owned and operated specializing in corn and alfalfa seed sales with an emphasis on pasture and cover crop mixes.  In 1985 the name was changed to Kamprath Seed Company.  The present owner, seed visionary Victor Schaff, purchased Kamprath Seed in 2002.  After over 50 years in the wholesale seed business Kamprath Seed, Inc. is a nationwide industry distributor of quality seed of cover crops, forages, pollinators, organics, and erosion mixes.

We have established a strong network of dealers in the Western United States to allow easy delivery and affordable access to our high-quality seed and cover crop mixes.  Our staff has over 60 years of seed industry experience to answer your questions and address any concerns.  Our goal is to assist our customers with in-field knowledge to assist with planting decisions.
