Malting barley is one of the most widely grown crops in the UK and is particularly popular within our trading area.

Much of the malting barley seed that we sell is purchased back at harvest on prearranged contracts and is used for the production of high-quality malts at our malting division Simpsons Malt

This gives us the ability to offer traceability from seed to bottle, which is becoming increasingly important to both farmers and end user customers in the distilling, brewing and food industries. 

We sell seed for both winter and spring malting barley varieties and, in our position as both a merchant and maltster, we can ensure you are growing a variety that meets end user requirements.

Our spring barley varieties

Planted in spring and harvested in late summer, spring barley is predominantly used in the malting and animal feed industries.
