Change is sometimes not only necessary, it is often beneficial.
This is one of those times.
I would like to start off by first thanking you for helping to
support our seed variety preservation work with your seed orders
these past 13 years. I also want to assure you that I have no
intention of stopping my personal fight against the erosion of our
planet’s biodiversity. With your continued help and support, I
will continue working to keep rare, heirloom varieties available
I no longer have the energy of my twenty-year-old self . . . I
admit it. I also am not willing to compromise on the quality of
the seed I offer, nor on the level of customer service you have
grown accustom to receiving from me.
But since I am a one man operation and can no longer perform all
of the duties and responsibilities necessary to both farm (raise
seed), and at the same time, operate a retail seed business, I
believe that I have found a perfect solution.
As you probably already know, I have shared my seed collection
with, and have been a seed grower for, the Victory
Seed Company for many years. Click
Here to read about our relationship over the years.
Since something had to give, and since I love to farm, I have
decided to focus my efforts on “hands-on” preservation and selling
my seeds through the Victory Seed Company. This freedom will allow
me to expand the number of varieties I grow out every year and at
the same time, keep them available to you.
I will continue offering sweet potato plants and tobacco plants on
my website and with more freed up time I hope to be able to offer
more varieties of tobacco plants.
You can still browse my site for seed varieties for information
and photos. In addition to selling seed to the Victory Seed
Company, if you use the links on my site and product pages to make
your purchase, I will earn an additional percentage of your order
to help further my preservation work. Thank you for your support!
Thank you again for your past support. I look forward to supplying
your heirloom seed needs, in partnership with the Victory Seed
Company, for years to come.
