We believe nature knows best.  Our goal as earth stewards is to caress, mimic, and work with natures patterns.  This means we don't operate heavy petroleum based equipment on the ground we grow food on.  We don't deplete our soils by tillage, burning up organic matter and destroying soil structure with no regard or respect for soil life.  We don't rely on any synthetic fertilizers or chemicals of any kind.  Instead, we farm using one hundred percent hand tools and think about how our actions affect the billions of life forms under our feet.  We utilize beyond organic growing practices and are strict followers of the biodynamic calendar where we tend to crops within the proper earth cycle.  We're focuced on nutrient dense freshly harvested produce, incorporating an anual 4,000 lbs of 100+ trace minerals, 50 yards of compost, animal manures, and carbon based materials into our soils.   In season, we bring to market produce that was cut and washed that morning, traveling at most nine miles to market in order to provide your family with the most nourishing food possible.

THE SEEDS.  We're quickly losing our heritage food supplys biodiversity, 94% of Heirloom Varieties Have Gone Extinct!  In the majority of seed catologs the heirloom varieties are out and the F1 hybrids are in.  F1 hybrids are a result of unnatural cell fusion genetic engineering. The International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements state that F1 Hybrids are GMO's.   F1 Hybrid seeds are not sustainable or saveable and yet a majority of farmers, backyard growers, and food consumers are contributing to the support of the GMO industry and the loss of our open pollinated seed bank by growing and buying hybrid crops.  Control the seed and you control everything. $$$.

Hand Sown Homegrown is dedicated to savable, open-pollinated seeds.  Ask the farmer if they grow hybrids, and request that they stop!

If you want life giving all natural foods, purchase directly from the farmers who you know their growing practices, this is your only option for real "organic" products.  Labels are deceiving!
