As you may know, Sustainable Seed Co. was devastated by the Paradise California Wildfire of 2018. True Leaf Market has been helping out by running operations for Sustainable Seed Company since that time. As of Summer 2021, the companies made the collective decision to make that arrangement permanent.

About Sustainable Seed Co.

Since 2008, we've been offering heirloom seeds, garden seeds, and organic heirloom seeds - non-hybrid vegetable, flower, and herb seeds. We are America's best source for heirloom vegetable seeds, heritage grains and herb seeds.

We wanted to offer heirloom seeds for one reason: they're not only our history, but our security. You can save the seeds of the vegetables, herbs and grains we offer, and with the proper methods, reliably get the same plants for generations to come. Please See a selection of Sustainable Seed Company Brand Seeds here.

Changing the World, One Seed at a Time

Sustainable Seed Company provides our customers with rare, organic, heirloom seeds for the backyard gardener, market farmers, and organic farmers. Our seeds are always non-GMO. Sustainable Seed Company has all your favorite vegetable seeds, as well as, a large collection of specialty varieties such as wheat seeds and other grains, tobacco seeds, herb seeds, flower seeds, and cover crop seeds. Sustainable Seed Company also offers bulk seeds for our farming partners.

Sustainable Seed Company carries many specialty seed mixes including wildflower seeds, herb and salsa packs, mixed pepper seeds, mixed tomato seeds, market garden mix, and poultry packs. We have several seed collections - or "instant gardens" which are great to use, store or give as gifts.

Sustainable Seed Company values food independence and sustainability through green agricultural and business practices. Our mission is to ensure the future of food by saving one of our most precious resources - seeds! Remember...good food comes from good seed.

Through sourcing first organic seeds, and then non-organic seeds, we strive to support and expand the organic offerings not only for you our customers, but also to support the farmers who are trying to make a living as Organic Farmers.

Discovering “new” heirloom seeds is one of our passions, and we would love to hear from anyone who is growing heirloom seeds that have been passed down for generations. We hope to preserve this part of history and believe that with the continuing encroachment from large producers of hybrid and GMO seeds, that companies such as our own, along with our customers, may be a crucial link to saving the future of food.

As a family-owned business, Sustainable Seed Company endeavors to provide our customers with the quality of seed we put in our own garden and on our tables. We have a strong focus on both quality and customer service. Many of our seeds were grown right on our own farm to ensure maximum quality and germination rates. As we discover new seeds, they are tested for purity, planted and harvested until we have enough seed to supply to customers. It may be several years before there is a sufficient quantity for customers, as the strains often originate from just a handful of seeds.

Information is an important aspect of our company and is crucial for developing a sustainable garden. Many gardeners don’t have the resources to learn how to plant, harvest and save heirloom seeds. We offer a variety of information within our pages to educate our customers about these methods and more. What sets us apart from other seed companies is our effort to provide this information to our customers so they may never need to purchase that strain from us again. We do this to encourage a sustainable lifestyle and to promote organic heirloom seed gardening.
