About our Organic Irish Vegetable Seeds

We are passionate about providing high quality organic and open-pollinated seed to all of our customers. The term, open-pollinated seed means, seed that comes from plants where pollination has happened naturally.

Benefits of using open-pollinated seed: These seeds have been around much longer than F1 hybrid or genetically modified seed, therefore they evolve with our environment. The plants they produce are much more genetically diverse and therefore will have a much higher benefit to pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Furthermore, using open-pollinated seed means you can produce the same plant the following season from saved seed.

This is not always the case with F1 hybrid and genetically modified seed.
