Safe Seed Pledge

safe seed pledgeWe do not buy seed from Monsanto or its subsidiaries like Seminis.  Nor do we buy from Bayer, Du Pont or Syngenta. 

We do not knowingly grow OR buy seed that is surrounded by GM crops.

We do not buy seed from foreign seed companies. We support local seed houses, farmers and their families. When you buy seed from us you are supporting American farm families and companies.

We don’t chemically treat our seeds.

We farm in a sustainable, water conscious and environmentally responsible manner.

All of our organic seed is grown strictly without the use of ANY chemical fertilizers and pesticides. We use only organic fertilizers and organic methods of pest control.


One of the major purposes of this heirloom organic seed company is genetic preservation of heritage open pollinated seeds. We believe it is every person’s right to control and grow their own food. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.

Heirloom seeds belong in the hands of people, not nameless, faceless corporations that we feel don't have our best interests at heart. Corporations that lobby our government so that GM food goes unlabeled in stores for example. We may not know what is in a box of cereal, but you can trust we will not be buying their seed. With this you have the ability to grow your own clean food for your family.

Do we test our corn seed for GMO?gmo

In light of the recent approval of the USDA to allow genetically engineered beets to enter the market place we have begun a GE testing program. These test are very expensive, but we will begin randomly testing beets, chard, corn and alfalfa for the presence of transgenic contamination.  We have a 0 tolerance.  Meaning if GE material is found even in trace amounts, we will reject the seed entirely.  

We will not tolerate transgenic contamination in our seed supply and will go to whatever means necessary to make sure our seed is pure the way nature intended.

I had a dream, that one day my children can grow up in a world with non- GM food.

I dont know if i can ever prove whether or not a seed has been GM, but i think this is as close as its going to get.

I know where I am buying my seed from now on. It has been found that the GMO corn(the stuff that creates its own sort of pesticide) is causing colony collape in bees and that eating GMO corn causes liver damage to those who eat it. What a mess!

Thank you for taking the effort to save these seeds. I'm only a highschool senior, but I became aware of the agriculture industries through school in freshman year and have been researching on my own since. I am strongly considering fighting them as a career, but I am afraid that uncontaminated seed won't be around by then, please continue what you're doing!

I am so happy to see that you are not under Monsanto's thumb. I will be buying my seed from you to grow in Alabama. Thank you.

Do you have any recommendations about where I can donate to a group who provides free seed to community gardens? I am getting married and I want to donate to an organization with this mission in lieu of guest favors.
Thank you,
