History

Foster’s Seed & Feed began in the early 1940s when founder John Foster started buying and shipping grain. As a hard-working Irish immigrant, Foster saw an opportunity to get involved in growing and selling creeping red fescue, a crop native to the Peace Region. Investing in a half section and growing a significant crop of fescue, which went for $0.50/lb at that time, was what gave Foster his start.

First established as Beaverlodge Seed Farm, the company continued to buy, produce and clean fescue reaching upward of 10 to 20 million pounds annually. We grew to become the largest privately-owned buyer and processor of red fescue in Western Canada. Besides selling locally and within Canada, we now export to the USA, Europe and Japan.

Foster’s has continued to adapt and diversify over the years. In 2008, we created Agri-World, and now owning Beaverlodge Napa Auto Parts, we can offer the community the best in agriculture equipment and technical service.

Today, still a family owned and operated business, Foster’s remains a trusted and respected member of the agriculture industry, and a place where farmers help farmers.
