It starts with a seed

1His business serves an important and necessary resource to the community and the science behind what Utah Seed does is a complex concept to understand. However, Orson Boyce is eager to share what he does and why it’s such an asset to the community. He’s a bit of a seed scientist, too.

Boyce has 35 years of experience in the seed business and started out working with his father in Washington state. He took the knowledge his father gave him and majored in agronomy at Washington State University. What he really does is figure out the science and correlation between dirt, environment and seeds and what will grow best where.

In 2000, Boyce founded Utah Seed and after relocating to Bothwell two years ago, Boyce and Utah Seed have flourished in Box Elder County. He works closely with Shane Getz, a local Bear River Valley farmer, and together they not only store seed at their Bothwell location, they also clean seed, sell seed and much more.

Recently they met with a group of Chinese farmers, offering them a tour of their facility and giving them advice for getting the best crop for where they farm.
