The History of Vesey Seeds and its Equipment Department.

"It all began on a shoestring" is the way Arthur Vesey described the beginning days of Veseys Seeds. From a very young age, Mr. Vesey operated a market garden in the small rural community of York, Prince Edward Island and later moved it to his home.  Arthur's seed business outgrew the one room in his home devoted to the gardening business and in 1948 construction was completed on a store, a packaging and mail order area as well as staff living quarters. Over the decades growth demanded several other expansions to the buildings as can be witnessed by the many interesting roof lines of Veseys Seeds present headquarters.

Since 1939, Veseys enjoyed moderate growth over the years, and Mr. Vesey hired B. E. (Bev) Simpson in 1956. Mr. Simpson's ideas, youth and energy contributed greatly to company growth. Soon, Mr. Simpson became a business partner and in 1980, upon the retirement of Mr. Vesey, Bev became President of the company and along with his wife Shirley, took full ownership of the business. Several business and industry awards later, including being named as one of Atlantic Canada's top CEO's Bev identified his son, Gerry, as the Vice President of Veseys Seeds Ltd in the year 2000. 

Gerry further expanded the direction of the company, and brought an additional focus to the humble, (where the first lawn tractor was sold out of Arthur's garage), yet flourishing Equipment Department. Through several expansions since the late seventies, including varying lawn and garden product lines, a partnership with the premier line of Club Car golf cars began and the company quickly provided for the needs of golf courses under the division name of ClubCarAtlantic. As golf courses across Atlantic Canada continue to require top quality parts & products the Toro Golf line of Equipment became part of Department product line. 

As of today, Veseys Equipment is pleased and honored to meet the parts, sales and service demands of the Golf, Turf, Lawn & Garden Equipment power needs of Prince Edward Island residents, and Atlantic Canada golf courses and muncipalities. 

Continuing the long tradition of Veseys exceptional service, Gerry, and staff are devoted to outstanding customer service to both residential and business customers. Each Veseys member takes pride in assisting customers and sincerely thanks you for your business, your inquiries, and in visiting this website.

Vesey Equipment is one of the largest grounds maintenance equipment distributors in eastern Canada. We focus on the golf course, municipal, landscape contractor markets without forgetting our residential customers.
