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 to gardeners.

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.
