are a small family owned and operated seed company who after many
years of offering seeds to our local area neighbors and friends decided to venture into
offering our seeds by
web based ordering beginning in 2004. We feel web based ordering is a great portal in
getting our old and rare varieties out to our customers in a fast and
friendly way. By
doing so helps to insure their continued survival so gardeners will
continue to have the opportunity to enjoy these plants from the past for
years to come.
Simply browse our online
catalog, add the items you desire to your cart. During the checkout
process, you will have the opportunity to change the quantities, remove
items (by clicking the delete button beside the item name), or
continuing to shop. You may then place your order securely using Visa,
MasterCard or Discover.

Most of our time is spent either in the fields or greenhouses or filling
orders. We are unable to take phone calls or accept orders over the
phone because of the time spent away from the office and because our
only phone line is our personal home phone and at this time we do not
have a line to my office.

We do not offer a printed
catalog, the cost makes it prohibitive at this time as well as our seed
varieties are in limited supply and stock levels can change very quickly
and this makes a printed catalog unfeasible. Our hope and goal
is to make your on-line shopping experience enjoyable, secure and easy for all our customers

catalog to place your order and have the option of paying with check or
money order. (see above)

Orders and Federal EIN
do not accept purchase orders. They are expensive and time consuming to
process. Most times the costs associated with processing a purchase
order would be more than the seed order itself.
We try to keep our website
updated on a regular basis which allows us to make changes as quickly
as possible in the case we run out of a particular variety or package
size. But in the case we are out of a particular item when your order
is received we will refund you. If you are interested in substitutions, let us know.

At this time we use the
U.S. Postal service as our carrier and shipping is by either First Class
or Priority Mail.
We don’t attempt
to make money on shipping. We
simply try to recoup some of the cost associated with filling and
shipping an order such as padded envelopes, fuel (trips to the post
office), boxes, postage, bank fees, etc. If we didn't cover costs, our preservation work
would be put at risk and we wouldn't be in business very long.
Shipping Time -- Most
orders ship within 3 business days of receipt of order, provided the
product ordered is in stock, (with the exception of plants that ship at
a different time and are shipped separately from other items). There can
be delays during the busiest time of the spring season. Orders are not
processed or shipped on Saturday or Sunday.
Multiple Product Orders
For a multiple product
order, we will make every attempt to ship all products contained in the
order at the same time with the exception of plants which ship at a
different time and separately from other items. Products that are
unavailable at the time of shipping will be shipped as they become
available, unless you inform us otherwise. You will only be charged for
products contained in a given shipment, plus any applicable shipping
charges. You will only be charged for shipping at the rate quoted to you
on your purchase receipt. The entirety of this shipping charge may be
applied to the first product(s) shipped on a multiple shipment order.

contamination and exposure to unregulated storage humidity and
temperature and frankly, we are just too small to absorb losses that are
not our fault.

Return authorization is required before returns are accepted. No
returns will be accepted after 30 days from time of invoicing.

Shipping and handling
Cancellations may be

Some plants that are
naturally occurring or have been cultivated for years have been deemed
by some governments, (local, state, provincial and federal) as being
classified as a noxious weed. We will not knowingly supply seed that
breaks a local law so please check the laws in your area before ordering
and planting. If you proceed to purchase these seeds from us, you do so
under the agreement that you will use them for non-planting purposes.
For your convenience here
are two links that may aid you in determining what would be considered a
noxious weed in your state.
