Dates of existence

1866 -


The Halifax Seed Company, founded in 1866, is the oldest continually operating family-owned seed company in Canada. Originally located on the waterfront, after the Halifax Explosion of December 1917 it was moved to Granville St. In 1920 the company was bought by Fred Tregunno, who worked there until his death in 1960, when his sons, Warren and Paul Tregunno, took over administrative control. The shop moved to Kane Street when the Historic Properties was established in the late 1960s.
