Heirloom Seeds

We’d like to introduce to you a new line of heirloom seeds. These seeds are non-hybrid, non-GMO and are not chemically treated. Because they are non-hybrid, the seeds can be harvested at the end of the growing season and then used for the next year’s planting.

Seeds Collage

There are some non-hybrid seed companies that make claims that the seeds will store for 20-100 years but this is only under optimal conditions with a decreased fertility rate over time. The Preparedness Seeds Salsa Can will keep AT LEAST 4-5 years on a shelf at 70 degrees and much longer if kept refrigerated or frozen.
