Meet the Growers of Fruition’s Seed!

Friends, when you come visit the farm one day, you’ll see: We grow seeds. Acres of gorgeous organic seeds, brilliantly co-adapting alongside us…

…and we’re not alone!

Did you know? As ‘distributors,’ most seed companies do not grow their own seeds (Trader Joes doesn’t have a farm behind each store, lol!) and Fruition is honored to share extraordinary organic seeds grown by our friends alongside our own. We sometimes ask for particular varieties to be grown though we usually simply encourage folx to grow and share what they love! We’re eager to share more of their stories, stay tuned for more, and though each year the percentage shifts, in 2022 about 60% of our seed is grown at Fruition with most other seeds being grown by:

We’ve shared seeds from other folx in the past and certainly more in the future! And Friends, we feel especially aware of the whiteness of our seed community and are hungry to cultivate greater diversity, care and possibility, in all the ways. We’re so committed to welcoming anyone drawn to seedwork into our world, don’t be shy ~

  1. I had NO idea your circle of farmers and seed savers was so extensive. Thank you for sharing all this info and happy (hopefully) bountiful fall to all of you!
