Our Story

Our community is at the heart of what we do. We even get our name, Fountain Creek Seed, from the township and the creek that flows by our facilities.

Fountain Creek Seed is owned and operated by husband and wife duo Bruce and Pam Ristow. After studying agriculture at Parkland College, Bruce became a Pioneer Sales Representative in 1993. Bruce and his wife began their own agency, Fountain Creek Seed.

But we’re not just a seed business. At Fountain Creek Seed, we’re in the business of growing relationships. We strive to live our agency promise, “Our growers come first,” by supporting them anyway we can, anytime, any season.

“We work hard for our growers and do everything in our power to help them make good decisions,” says Bruce. “We truly enjoy working for our growers and genuinely care about them and want to see them succeed.”
