Heirloom Seedlings & Vegetables
In 2016, we began growing a small variety of heirloom vegetable and herb seedlings.
Raising seedlings began much like the raising of livestock, as a collaborative way for our family to raise more of our own food.
We choose to grow heirloom varieties of vegetables and herbs, as much as possible, as a way to preserve diversity, try some unique varieties of veggies and of course to enjoy all of their amazing flavours!
Seeds are ordered from William Dam Seeds, a reputable Ontario based seed company that supplies great quality products and many unique plant varieties. In 2019, we also added seeds from Hawthorn Farm Organic Seeds a small, family owned farm specializing in certified organic seeds and open pollinated varieties of vegetables, herbs, and pollinator friendly plants.
We grow our seedlings in an organic growing medium from Fafard soil company. No pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers are used to grow them.
