Our Safe Seed Pledge
We pledge to offer open-pollinated seed grown on farms and in gardens working with biodynamic practices as outlined by Rudolf Steiner in his Agriculture Course of 1924. Our North American and European seed growers understand and are committed to this. We work with our network of growers on a basis of mutual trust and understanding, through personal contact and with specific guidelines, which include watching isolation carefully to ensure purity of variety and safety from genetic pollution. We do not carry hybrids or knowingly carry seed that has been genetically engineered or polluted with genetically engineered products. We also do not knowingly carry products from farms where animals are fed genetically engineered feed. We pledge to educate ourselves and others on these issues as we learn, grow and develop towards attaining the ideal of a biodynamic farm or garden.
All of the seed we sell is Demeter Certified Biodynamic ®. Many varieties are also certified organic. For the convenience of those required to have certified seed, we have noted available certified varieties. All Demeter Certified Biodynamic ® certification is through the U.S. Demeter Association or its counterpart in other countries. In the U.S., the term Demeter Certified Biodynamic® is registered by the Demeter Association as a certification mark. For the 2018-19 year, Organic certification was carried out by both Stellar Organics and NOFA NY.
