About us

Field Options was set up by Francis Dunne at the end of 2004, following 22 years in the forage seed industry, first with Sinclair McGill, ICI Seeds and latterly, technical and marketing manager at Oliver Seeds.

The company markets a comprehensive range of seeds primarily for use by livestock farmers. This includes: Grass mixtures, maize, fodder beet, wholecrop mixtures and forage crops as well as seeds for environmental schemes, green manures, game cover, lawns and sports turf.

The products and services detailed on the Field Options website can be ordered through our main office in Presteigne, Powys, or through a number of appointed agents at various locations throughout the UK.

Products are delivered direct to farm from contracted production centres at various locations in England and Wales or from a warehouse in north Herefordshire. For quality control purposes, many Field Options grass mixtures are blended to order. The most popular mixtures are kept in stock for immediate delivery. Standard service is three days, but next day service is also available. We supply farmers throughout England, Wales and Scotland with seeds in combination with agronomic and, where necessary, forage planning advice. We can be contacted for technical advice by phone, email or through farm visits.

We recognise that the purpose of the crops produced from our seed must feed animals efficiently and profitably.  We have examples of realistic costings for the main crop groups at often at a range of yield levels. This helps inform our decision in what to recommend, can provide an insight into the management requirements of each crop, and identify if a crop is suited to a particular farm location or system - Our aim is to help you get the best out of your land.
