Welcome to Highfields Seeds

Welcome to Highfields Seeds

Highfields Seeds Limited was established in 1958 on the site at Desford by Reg Quinsee as a specialist agricultural seed company. Highfields Seeds has traded successfully for 58 years. In 1988 John Cartwright joined the company and in 2001 he took over the business together with John Ashmore, as a director.

John Cartwright is now the Managing Director with Mel Siddons the Office Manager, Amy Cartwright HR/Transport Manager and Crop Inspector, Anthea Parker the Accounts Manager and Paul Percival Processing Manager assisted by Ken Gibbs.  We operate two cleaning lines both with gravity separators.  We have two rigid vehicles with our drivers, Mick Dagley and Tony Hulbert.


We are a thriving company with committed, regular seed growers most of whom have been working with John Cartwright for many years even before he came to this company.
