Parkseeds was established in 1951 by Lloyd and the late Val Parks (2017) in the beautiful Valleys below Mt Buller and 5km from the township of Mansfield in Victoria.
From humble beginnings Parkseeds has grown into the one of the largest temperate grass seed producers in the Southern Hemisphere farming over 6500 acres (2600 Hectares). As well as growing the seed for both the agricultural and commercial markets, Parkseeds also clean and package in their warehouse facility.
To keep up with the current markets and trends in the grass seed industry Parkseeds run a 25 hectare research and trial farm. Growing and harvesting different varieties and valuating for quality and yield performance.
Lloyd has retired from the day to day operations of Parkseeds but can still be seen around the farm offering his services and helping out with the sheep operation "Top Lamb". Parkseeds is now run by Sons, Brad as General Manager and Scott as Operations Manager. This year we saw the 3rd Generation joining the Family business in Lloyd Jnr and Harry.
Lloyd was an extra as a horse rider in the "Man from Snowy River" filmed at Mansfield in 1982. See Lloyd in the middle with Stars of the movie Sigrid Thornton and Tom Burlinson.
