Thanks for supporting small farming in the Maritimes! We grow many of our seeds ourselves, here at Heartseed Farm. We also collaborate with some excellent friends and seed savers, who add to the catalogue many of their own favourite varieties.
We are growers and stewards of heirloom and open pollinated seed. Our goal is to cultivate the greatest possible diversity of seeds for our region. Our collection acts as a living seed bank for the Maritimes and Eastern Canada.
We never repackage commercial seed. Much of our seed is grown on our farm in Nictaux, or else by a handful of dedicated seed growing friends across the Maritimes. 100% grown in Atlantic Canada.
Like always, all our varieties are open pollinated and can be saved for seed, a simple yet important act I want to see every gardener doing. Thanks for supporting local seed, and for keeping seeds in the hands of the people!
Hi folks, welcome to our 2021 online catalogue! We grew a lot of seeds on the farm this past year, replenished supplies after unprecedented demand in Spring 2020. Happy to report a lot of old favourites are back in stock, although not quite all of them. Over 50 new varieties too.
We’re currently (as of January 2021) packaging up new seeds for the year, and we’ll begin shipping orders around February 1. Feel free to place your order anytime though.
Shipping is only within Canada this year, apologies to our international customers. This past summer and fall a large percentage of seed orders were getting stopped by US and EU customs, which is disappointing for all involved. I do hope to resume international orders in the future.
Regular customers may have noticed; we raised our prices this season, from 3.00 to 3.50. Seeds had been 3.00 since we began back in 2008. Hope you don’t mind our updated price (gotta keep up with the times).
In other news; we’re taking a year off from offering Comfrey and Sunchoke roots. Although I am planning to offer live roots again in a future year.
