Farmers have some of the most creative ideas of any business people I've been around. The ways of making money on a small farm runs the gamut from selling honey, jam, birdhouses, and other goods sourced from the farm. Until I heard of Summer Creek Farm, I'd never seen a farmer produce and sell seed starter mix.

I had seen SCF’s-Summer Creeks Farm's seed starter mix in my favorite natural grocery store but didn't think much about it. I thought seed starter mixes were pretty much all the same. What changed my mind was seeing a local PBS farm show that ran a short segment on Summer Creek Farm's seed starter mix.

This particular mix is made from environmentally-sourced products: many of which are waste from other products such as coconut coir. Rick Hood, the owner of Summer Creek Farm, has not only engineered a system for mixing and bagging his seed starter; he also is the mastermind behind the proprietary ingredients.



I was curious enough to make the hour and a half drive to Rick's farm on a late February day to see why gardeners and farmers should be interested in buying a premium seed starter mix. Rick was kind enough to meet with me and explain his products. Even though Rick sells a couple of other soil-less mixes for raised beds, outdoor pots, and one mix for indoor pots, I was mostly interested in the seed-starter mix.
