"FAIR TRADE" GARDEN SEEDS: 90-99% of our profits go directly to the farmers who grow our seeds, all of which are located in the southern Blue Ridge Mountains of southwestern Virginia, western North Carolina, and northern Georgia. Unlike other seed companies, we want the seed industry to promote and support small family farms using sound, sustainable practices. This goes far beyond simply eliminating chemical inputs--for us this means promoting local crop resources and biodiversity on-farm in ways that intensify agricultural production while reducing inputs. Only member growers may purchase in bulk quantities, and patrons from outside the Blue Ridge Mts. must pay a small supporting membership. January 2007 will be our grand opening!
SEEKING MEMBER SEED PRODUCERS: looking for regional organic/alternative farms (or those in transition) who want to diversify their operation and increase their on-farm income as well as seed-saving home gardeners. Contact us for more information!
