Our Native Seed harvesters have been sold across the world for over 30 years under the Prairie Habitats brand. We are excited at GP Restoration Solutions to add these tried and true native seed harvesters to our line of equipment for ecological restoration. We have operated these machines since the early 1990’s when they were originally patented and can attest to their durability over decades of use.

Wild Seed Harvesters around the world
In 2020 we intend to release an updated line of harvesters with new options and numerous upgrades to make harvesting easier and more efficient. We currently offer three lines of harvesters:
Our hand held seed harvesters are built to increase hand harvesting efficiency significantly.
Our pull type native seed harvester comes in the standard 4-foot harvesting width and an optional 6-foot model. The 4-foot harvester is perfect for easy transportation as it fits on a 8 foot wide flat deck and can be pulled behind quads, side by sides, tractors and trucks. The 6-foot model comes in at 10 feet wide for larger harvesting capacity. Harvesters are able to harvest from 4in to 6ft (7ft for the 4-foot high lift model).
Our front-end loader native seed harvesters come in a standard 8-foot harvesting width and we have made larger customized harvesters (i.e. 10-foot) for larger tractors. These harvesters require a tractor with at least 45hp and work best with a quick attach system for easy attachment and removal.
GP Restoration Solutions Inc. ’s primary goal is to conserve biological diversity by encouraging the use of locally-collected seed in reclamation, ecological restoration, heritage seed production and research. They allow efficient collection of local native seed in places no other mechanized equipment could go. If you can walk there, you can harvest your own local native seed. Our Hand Held Seed Harvesters also are excellent for small-scale crop, herb & registered seed plots. They are 10X more efficient than hand collecting.
Our Harvesters are used by conservation agencies, reclamation industries, ranchers, farmers & native seed producers in 46 countries. Since 1987 they have proven themselves in many different seed harvest applications on 250+ species of grasses, wildflowers, legumes, weeds and crops.
