We are a certified organic farm that grows a tremendous variety of herbs, flowers and vegetables, however there are a few varieties that we do not grow for seed each year due to a few reasons such as seed crop failures, or a couple of our flower blends for simplicity, or due to wanting to offer more varieties of a crop then we can grow here due to cross pollination concerns. In these cases we do buy from other growers, do germination testing and repackage as is standard with most seed companies.
The Safe Seed Pledge:
Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy, sell or trade genetically engineered seeds or plants.
