Sowing Sustainable Seeds

Our seed order arrived today! We select seeds based on value, performance, ethics and fun. Like MOTHER EARTH NEWS says “you want to buy from a seed company you can trust.” This year we purchased from High Mowing Organic Seeds .

Why did we choose High Mowing? One big reason is The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend … we support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.”

If your seed company isn’t providing you with this level trust, then consider finding a new one that does. What seeds did we buy?

  • Delicata Winter Squash
  • Sugar Dumpling Winter Squash
  • Costata Romanesco Zucchini
  • Korridor Kohlrabi
  • Red Giant Mustard
  • Bilko Cabbage

What else is Wooleylot Farm growing?  Glad you asked. We have our fall-planted winter hardy perennials including garlic, shallots and horseradish.  We also have saved some fingerling potato tubers for spring-planting. As always, we have high hopes for the success of our organically-grown, non-GMO crops.
