**NEW SEED VARIETIES ADDED OFTEN. FREE SHIPPING CODE ON HOME PAGE


My passion for growing heirloom tomatoes and other vegetables began about 17 years ago as I was turned on to them by a gardening friend. For someone who never liked tomatoes you can imagine the impact trying heirlooms made on my life and my garden. At about the same time I had a hobby of collecting flower seeds around the neighborhood and anywhere else I could find them. 6 years ago Cory & I started our small heirloom plant business here in Salt Lake City for the home gardener. Adding our own line of seeds in the Spring of 2010 due to popular demand and the love of collecting seeds. Living in the city where properties are small, borrowing land from kind folks in the area seemed like a perfect fit to enable us to offer our fresh, organic produce to the public. Actively…

Living in the city where properties are small, borrowing land from kind folks in the area seemed like a perfect fit to enable us to offer our fresh, organic produce to the public. Actively assisting in changing our local food supply and teaching folks about the importance of heirloom varieties, eating healthier and local, and growing their own food are just some of the reasons we do what we do. We're not farmers. We're city folk who enjoy our organic lifestyle of growing our own food. We hope to make a difference in the lives of people all over the world by getting them excited to grow their own food, perhaps food they didn't even know existed.

SAFE SEED PLEDGE
"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. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities."

Sincerely-Carolyn Kenyon
