11/5/20 - 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. John and Mike are working on updating the and adding "new" varieties to the website as time permits. You can keep an eye on what they are doing by clicking here. Please refer to the top of the website for updated information, stay safe, and thank you for helping to support our biodiversity preservation work with your orders.
No Catalog for 2021: Although we usually offer a printed descriptive catalog every winter, these are very unusual times. When COVID-19 hit the world early in the Spring of 2020, the sales volume that we experienced, although greatly appreciated, did put unexpected drains on our inventory. As if life during an international pandemic wasn't enough, the growing season this past summer was challenging to say the least. Decreased harvest yields and crop failures were experienced all over the country. With the uncertainties that lie ahead, printing a catalog just is not practical at this time. 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.
