Did you know?

The Ferry-Morse Seed Company is located right here in Kentucky, and seem to be the oldest seed company in America (est.1856).    They have signed the Safe-Seed Pledge, and will not sell any seed that has been genetically modified. They sell mostly conventional seed, but also have a good-sized selection of organic seed.   Who knew?   Since they are found everywhere, I just figured they are a big corporate entity not interested in quality and safety in the food seeds they sell.    I bought a few packs at Walmart yesterday. I can hardly wait!


  1. Thanks for that information! I don't know that I've seen their seeds around here, but now I'll look. After hearing somewhere that the majority of seed companies get their (GMO) seeds from one or two sources, I've been looking at Abundant Life Seeds ( located here in Oregon, thanks to a catalog that showed up in our mailbox. (Got your email and will respond when I have more time.)

  2. I didn't know they were from KY. That puts a whole new light on the subject of local. lol. Thanks for the info!

  3. Glad to hear it. Thanks for posting.
