<p>Here at Peaceful Valley Farm & Garden Supply (online as <a href=””></a>) we’ve been supporting organic farmers and gardeners since 1976, and we believe <a href=””>organic seeds</a> are a sound basis for an organic garden.</p>

Organic farmers are <em>required</em> to use organic seeds if available, and home gardeners want to use organic seeds for three reasons:<br />
1. the seeds grew in fields without synthetic pesticides (non-organic
seed is exposed to even more pesticides because they sit in the field
much longer than food crops), <br />
they were grown with organic methods and respond well to conditions in an organic home garden, <br />
supporting organic seed farmers gives vitality to the organic seed supply.</p>

All our vegetable and herb seeds are certified organic, with many
heirloom varieties. We carry over 1700 kinds of seeds, including <a href=””>cover crops</a>, and open pollinated flowers. Worried about GMO’s? We signed the Safe Seed Pledge and our seeds are all non-GMO! </p>

seeds — and Tricia gives her organic gardening advice and tells you her
favorite products for organic growing. Download a PDF of our <a href=””>Seed Catalog</a> here.</p>
<p>We have the whole array of seed starting equipment, from a device to
