Seed Policy: Our Seeds

We are committed to quality and sustainability.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

Your seeds have been germination tested and found to meet or exceed the Federal standards for interstate commerce. We will work with reasonable requests for replacement/reimbursement due to poor germination, or due to concerns you may have about other plants or products from this year’s catalog. Although every precaution is taken to ensure accuracy, errors in price, quantity, and/or specifications may occur in printing. We reserve the right to correct such errors.

Untreated and Non-GMO Seeds

All of the seeds that we sell are untreated (not coated with fungicides or insecticides) and non-GMO.

We signed the Safe Seed Pledge over a decade ago, as a commitment to non-GMO seeds. The Safe Seed Pledge says the following:

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners, and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families, or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.

Organic Seeds

We strive to offer as many organic varieties as possible and hope to one day offer only organic seeds. Currently, we offer more than 300 varieties of certified organic seeds, and we post our organic certificate online every year.
