Yankalilla Seeds Pty Ltd

Yankalilla Seeds was founded by the late Colin Symonds in 1962 and is still a family run business today under the direction of his sons David and Peter Symonds, who took over from their father in the early 2000’s. Colin (or CR as he was affectionately known to family & friends) started the Seed Sales business in the backyard shed of their family home, a farming property in Wattle Flat, Yankalilla, South Australia. Back then, the average sales per annum consisted of approximately 6 tonne of pasture & cereal, with Colin as the only staff member.  With the aid of his sons, the business grew to encompass not just the sales of pasture & cereals, but to the manufacture & production of the seed as well.
