Seymour Ag Supplies – Local-Rural-Independent. Three simple words that mean a lot to us. We have been in operation for nearly seven years and have developed a great local knowledge and system for improving production and passing on our knowledge.
Our Independence allows us to buy where we want and what we want. We do belong to a group called National Rural Independents (NRI). This allow us access to all major companies without tying us to anyone in particular. We look at each product and choose which one in our opinion is best for the situation -we are not be told by a head office what is best for them.
Our staff includes Jeanette, Emma and Rob. Check us out in the staff section.
You will see other faces around at times – such as Sam and Rob. Sam drops in after school and on weekends while Rob fills in when we are short or have special projects going.
Our aim is to provide a superior level of service to our customers with all their farm needs. Rural

Our highly qualified and experienced staff are available in store for advice, or alternatively, our on-farm assessment is available as part of our AgTech program (contact us for more details)
