Because the farm is also our family home, we are not open to the public at this time.

As gardeners and seed savers, we take great care in ensuring that our strains are properly and accurately presented to our customers through the images and text we employ throughout our website.  We do not use stock images for our products.  Every image on this website is the result of sowing, cultivating, tending, and harvesting the exact varieties we sell.  We hire a professional photographer to ensure that these varieties are presented in a way that informs and inspires home gardeners. Likewise, our descriptions are personally written to reflect our experience with a particular variety and its history.

We welcome the sharing of our images for the purposes of outreach and education.  We only ask that you credit us when using our images and provide a link to our website. If you are unsure whether your blog or website meets these guidelines, feel free to contact us. The commercial use of our images, however, is strictly prohibited.  All images presented on this website are registered with the US Copyright Office and their unauthorized use constitutes a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). We utilize a web crawling service to identify unauthorized use of our images and take steps to have them removed.

Unfortunately, we do not sell live plants at this time. However, we are confident that starting seeds is within the abilities of any gardener and we invite you to visit our growing guides for some encouragement and useful starter tips.

We ship to all areas of North America including the United States, its territories and outlying islands, and Canada. International orders may incur an additional charge to cover the handling of customs paperwork.
