10/13/20 - With the wildfires that we experienced here, our harvest season was definitely different than normal and fraught with challenges, but we have just about wrapped up getting our seed crops out of the fields and safely into the barns. As we clean and test seed and prepare for the 2021 gardening season, our seedhouse crew is working hard and currently getting your orders quickly filled and mailed out within 2 to 4 business days. Please refer to the top of the website for updated information, stay safe, and thank you for your patience and support during these trying times.
Due to the unexpected and radical depletion of our inventory, catalog sales have been rendered irrelevant and our 2020 catalog is no longer available. That is, if you were to place an order from a catalog printed in January and mail it in, we most likely would not have the seeds to send you. Thank you for your understanding and patience during these trying times.
We are an early signer of the Safe Seed Pledge
All of our seeds are open-pollinated, non-hybrid, not chemically treated, many are rare, family heirlooms or endangered, and we will never knowingly offer genetically engineered, aka GMO, varieties.
For over twenty-two years, people from all over the world have sent us their interesting and prized family seed varieties. Although our grow out schedules are tight, we do fit in quite a few "new" varieties each year. We eventually trial them and make as many as possible available to gardeners.
