About Our Seeds
We offer heirloom and open-pollinated seeds for vegetable, flower, and herb varieties. Many of these seeds we produce on our own small farm; the rest we source from other local farmers, farmers in other regions, and from trustworthy wholesale seed houses that are not owned by or affiliated with multi-national biotech companies. We have signed the Safe Seed Pledge, and we adhere to Vandana Shiva’s Declaration of Seed Freedom. Since May 2013, we are both a Certified Organic farm and a Certified Organic Handler (both certifications provided by NOFA-NY LLC). Thanks to gardeners like you, we’ve been able to expand our catalog of heirloom and open-pollinated seeds every year.From A Seed Library to a Seed Company. When we started this undertaking eight years ago, we envisioned a small business that was driven by a beneficent mission: to save, share, and celebrate seeds, especially here in our region. As our project grew and evolved, and as the Art Packs became known across the country, we have evolved into a full-fledged seed company. As of November 1st, 2016, we have changed our name to reflect this: we are now the Hudson Valley Seed Company. What will happen to the Library? It will continue! Click here for details on how we are shifting the educational and participatory parts of what we do to a new not-for-profit undertaking, one that will be renewed and invigorated by its ability to accept donations from individuals and grants from foundations—a way of energizing this work that has not been available to us until now.
