Our Past

Our beginnings can be traced back to the 1920's when Donald McIntyre began farming 600 acres near Casselton, North Dakota. As the farm prospered, Donald recognized the need for quality certified seed and built the first of our seed plants in 1966. As our clients and their needs grew--and as the number of seed varieties exploded--a second seed plant was added in 1975. Soon after this Donald, his wife Lily, his children Duane and Marlyce, and their spouses Paula and Harvey formed McIntyre-Pyle Seeds, Inc.. 


In June of 1990, McIntyre-Pyle Seeds gave way to become the Unity Seed Company when our two families formed a marketing company for the seed we grow. With this change we soon became affiliated with Gold Country Seed and WestBred "A Unit of Monsanto" which necessitated the creation of a dealer network to handle our expanding product line.

In 2006, Monsanto acquired Gold Country Seed as one of their Regional brands.  Over the last 7 years, we have had a very good relationship with Monsanto through Gold Country Seed.  We have benefitted from direct access to the best technology and genetics pipeline in the world.

This fall, Monsanto is planning to realign their Regional Brands so that each brand has a unique geographical footprint.  At that time, Gold Country Seed will become Monsanto’s only regional brand in southern Minnesota.  REA Hybrids will become the only regional brand in the Dakota’s and Northern Minnesota.  Therefore, Unity Seed will become a REA Hybrids dealer.

An additional diversification, which complimented our seed business, was the addition of Identity Preserved food-grade soybean processing, both domestic and foreign. This new venture brings an extra marketing opportunity for our seed customers, and we will continue to look for new opportunities as the business of agriculture continues to change.
