We are still experiencing high demand at the same time as reduced capacity due to coronavirus restrictions.  This is always a busy time of year as we juggle processing sales with establishing new seed crops.

We are dispatching most orders within 48-72 hours, but dispatch may take up to 7-10 working days in some cases.

Sowing the seeds of a resilient food system

Growing organic diversity in our fields, soils and seeds means working with Nature’s genius and embedding resilience for future generations.

Growing health, naturally

Seeds of open pollinated varieties, bred and maintained for organic systems, are the essential ingredients for farming that nurtures the health of our planet and people.

Democracy is at the heart of what we do

We work with a network of growers and share our skills to build a closer relationship between people, the food they eat and the farmers who grow it.

The availability of organic open pollinated seed has been in decline for many years.  The Seed Co-operative pare of particular significance.
