This morning while speaking with a new customer it dawned on me that not everyone knows about what makes an heirloom seed so special.

An  heirloom seed variety has been saved and passed down from generation to generation. These seeds have been carefully cultivated and are considered a great value to the recipient.  
Our Heirloom varieties can be traced anywhere from 50 years to some over 400 years!

Heirloom Seeds are unique like the Lemon Cucumber or Romanesco Italia Broccoli and others are just like the produce you buy in the store (only tastier) like the Roma Tomato.   

Heirloom seeds are Open-Pollinated and non-hybrid.
One of the many benefits of planting Heirloom varieties is seed saving!  Seed saving is how farmers and horiculturist have preserved the integrity of these seed varieties for hundred of years.

We've added NEW Varieties!
