About Our Company
What We Offer & Our Business Philosophy
Welcome to VictorySeeds.com, the Web home of the Victory Seed Company and our packets of Victory Seeds®. We currently have hundreds of open-pollinated and heirloom seed varieties in stock and ready to ship.
Along with our seed selection, we offer quality. Our Victory Seeds® meet, and usually exceed, industry and regulatory standards (refer to our warranty page). Instead of seeds that are packaged ahead of time, moved through various distribution locations only to end up sitting on a rack in the garden center of "big box" stores, our seeds are received, quality checked, and stored until their sale.
Unlike most seed companies that purchase all of their seed stock and repackage, we actually are farm-based, live a farm lifestyle, and what seed we don't raise here, we obtain from a network of carefully selected growers. We then store them under controlled conditions until they are shipped out to you. Our packaging, with our inner resealable bag, reflects how we work to maintain the viability of your seeds.
Customer service is also very important to us. We work hard to promptly answer email, fill orders quickly, and update product availability information on this Web site as it changes.
In summary, our goal as an organization, is to provide you, our friends and supporters (customers), with the highest value for your hard-earned money -- a good selection, reasonable prices, high quality open-pollinated and heirloom seeds, and responsive customer support. We want your gardening experience to be positive and fruitful. If you are successful, we are successful. We hope that you will give us a chance to prove ourselves as a company worthy of your support.

Why Support the Victory Seed Company?
The primary reason for our existence as an organization is to help protect open-pollinated and heirloom seed varieties during a time when the diversity of food crop cultivars on our planet is quickly shrinking. Regions of the planet that once provided much of the genetic material for our domesticated crop plants is rapidly being destroyed or irreversibly damaged. Additionally, in the past several decades, there has been a growing trend of mergers and consolidations among the seed industry. With responsibility to shareholders as a motive, less profitable and similar seed varieties are being dropped from the seed lines of the combined companies. In many cases, these plants are forever lost to us all.
As we witness the elimination of old varieties from other company's offerings, the emphasis of commercial unstable hybrids, and the proliferation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), we feel an urgency in our mission. We have therefore dedicated our efforts to preserving and promoting the use of open-pollinated varieties -- old commercial releases as well as family heirlooms -- and working towards the protection of our genetically diverse horticultural heritage. We truly believe in teaching these principles to all who are willing to learn.
Your support allows us to maintain a seed bank, educate the public, remain independent from the mainstream seed trade, and ensure that important varieties remain available to gardeners, farmers, and plant breeders.
