Drummonds Feed, Seeds & Grain Merchants- supplying a comprehensive range of Feed, Fertilisers, Seeds, Crop Protection & Packaging, Animal Health & Hardware
Drummonds was founded by William Drummond in Sterling, Scotland in 1760. Originally sellers of a wide range of seeds, including flowers, vegetable and grass seeds, the company also distributed bulbs and nursery stock. Many years later the Drummond family established a similar business in Ireland with two shops in central Dublin and national distribution for all its products. In 1972, Drummonds added an agricultural division to its business based in Clonee, trading in grain, fertiliser, chemicals and agricultural seeds. The company, over time, increased its branch network, opening grain intake points at Ardee, Drogheda, Kells, Knockbridge and Navan. A seed manufacturing facility was developed at Drogheda and a ruminant feed manufacturing mill at Navan.
Drummonds was acquired by Freshmills in 2009, Freshmills is a joint venture between Liffey Mills and Grassland Fertilisers, this has added a new dimension to Drummonds business. Since the acquisition, the company has initiated a significant capital investment programme and developed the business across a more complete range of product lines, the animal feeds business has been developed and a chain of farm hardware shops added at our existing branches.
Over the years Drummonds have developed excellent relationships with animal feed compounders, oilseed crushers, flour and oat millers and maltsters, allowing the company to develop markets for Irish grain both at home and abroad Drummonds agronomists work closely with our farmer customers, advising them on all aspects of crop husbandry. This relationship facilitates the introduction of new varieties, new production techniques with the objectives of improving farm profitability and developing closer trading links with our customers.
