Open Pollinated Heirlooms Sustainably Grown

Farmer’s Pick practices Sustainable Agriculture as a way to grow tasty vegetables without damaging the environment or threatening human health.

We believe in seed freedom and plant diversity, growing only open-pollinated and heirloom plant varieties (non-hybrid, non-GMO).

Heirloom or Heritage seeds and plants have been nurtured, saved, and passed down through the generations, some going back hundreds of years. They are chosen for their:

  • exceptional flavor
  • nutrition
  • exciting colors and unique shapes
  • store ability
  • adaptability to the growing region
  • Biogenetic Diversity, mother earths insurance against extinction

Also, unlike modern day hybrids and transgenic plants which do not reproduce true to type and are patented and corporate owned, open-pollinated plants produce seeds that can be saved and grown year-to-year by anyone for free.

Other principles of Sustainable Agriculture include:

  • building a healthy soil
  • conserving water
  • multi-cropping
  • minimal to no pesticides/herbicides use
  • supporting the local community food system
