If you’re always on the hunt for out-of-the-ordinary seeds, you’ve come to the right place!
I live for the thrill of sowing and growing interesting plants each year, then collecting their seeds so other gardeners can try them too. I started with plant-society seed exchanges, then began doing my own yearly seed giveaway here at Hayefield. The response was so tremendous that, about 5 years ago, I acquired a Seed Dealer License from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and started Hayefield on Etsy to make it easier for others to find the seeds I have available.
What Makes Hayefield Seeds Special?
- All of the seeds I sell through Hayefield on Etsy are from plants growing in my Bucks County, PA, garden and meadow without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. I do not purchase and repack seeds from other sources.
- I collect, clean, and pack all of the seeds by hand, in small, hand-labeled, glassine (paper) envelopes to keep costs down and minimize packaging.
- As soon as I collect each year’s crop, I toss the old seeds in my garden, meadow, or compost pile, so you can be sure you are getting the freshest seeds possible.
- With so much hand work involved in producing these seeds, I can’t compete with big growers on price, so I focus on offering seeds that few or no other commercial seed sources offer. I encourage the folks who buy these special seeds to share them as with other gardeners and seed exchanges, so they don’t get lost to cultivation.
