Information about our seeds: Most of our seeds come from traditional crops that farmers have cultivated for many years. These seeds are not GMO, do not chemically or biologically treated and are processed with minimal mechanization. 


Guarantee: Seeds are living products that depend on many factors such as proper planting time and technique, depth of sowing, soil, proper germination environment, fertility, disease control, insect control, and reasonable weather for direct sown seeds. If any of these factors are not right, it may cause the seed to not perform and because most, if not all, of these are out of our control, most of the success of these seeds is in the hands of the grower. If they have been cared for properly and still fail to grow, we will replace the seed, one time.
