We strongly oppose the release of GMO (genetic modified organism) food
crops. We sell only open-pollinated
heirloom varieties because we care about wholesome, healthful foods,
free of unnatural human tinkering.
We love the sense of continuity we feel with
growers of past generations, whenever we harvest heirloom produce in
our own garden! We enjoy growing crops that have been saved by
generations of growers because they have genuinely good

gardeners like us! And like so many other gardeners, we feel that
heirloom varieties often taste better than the rigid faux-veggies that
have been foisted upon unwary consumers for the convenience of big
agri-business! So we support taking control over our diet,
health, and lives....one pesticide-free heirloom plant at a time!
