All of the seed we offer is grown and produced here on our farm with the exception of a few varieties that are grown for us by other heirloom growers. Our seeds are rare, and hand produced by our family for your garden. They might
be a little higher than the mass produced varieties you can find elsewhere, but I still don’t make minimum wage raising these for you. It is a labor of love. We work hard at researching and locating rarer open-pollinated and
heirloom varieties of usable and historical merit. Our goal is to provide you with the best possible quality of open-pollinated and heirloom seeds.
Our seeds meet or exceed industry and regulatory standards and we are licensed by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture as a retail seed dealer. We perform regular germination test on all our seed to insure they meet regulatory
standards and our own high standards.
With today’s conventional agriculture, most seed are treated with fungicides, insecticides or other chemicals to enhance germination in colder, harsher growing conditions. Our seed have not been treated with any chemicals, so caution
should be observed in planting too early. We suggest that you contact your local agricultural extension office to obtain recommended planting dates for specific plants in your growing area.
Hybrids and GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms)
We pledge that we do not knowingly grow and produce or offer for sale, any plants or seeds that have been genetically modified through laboratory practices. We offer only standard, open-pollinated, non-hybrid seed varieties. We
are a proud signer of The Save Seed Pledge
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.
Our seed is not organic certified and we have no plans for the near future of becoming a certified organic operation due to the high cost of doing so. Although we believe highly
in the principles of organic and sustainable agriculture and use organic practices on our farm, we still employ on occasion, conventional farming practices such as using small amounts of commercial fertilizer on specific crops
as well as the use of insecticides if insect pressure becomes too severe for control by organic methods.
Even though we are not certified organic many of the varieties that we offer are not available anywhere else. Certified growers can therefore use our seed as outlined in the standards.
