Our Green Peas are grown for Seed Production, the Chinese edible specialty snack pea market and the Performance Equine market.
Available in convenient 10 kg bags, 22.5 kg bags, and bulk.
Our milled clean green peas are cleaned to certified seed standards prior to milling. This provides clean feed with no dirt, pods, weeds, or foreign material. We have a customized mill dedicated strictly for peas to prevent any contamination from our other Whole Grain Feed products. We slow speed mill our peas to fractionate them down to 1/4 or less with minimal dust to provide a nutrient rich product which is highly digestible in dry form.

The specific pea variety that we have selected is a proven provider in high nutrition, trace mineral content and extensive amino acid profile. They are bred for specific genetics such as high nutrition and seed coat strength. As with all of our products, our green peas are non-GMO.
