About Us

St. Clare Heirloom Seeds is a family owned and operated online business. What began as a hobby has developed into a mission for us. We have always loved gardening, and believe it is vitally important for the future of all to spread the use and preservation of heirloom and open-pollinated seeds. Genetic diversity is in danger with hybrid seeds and Genetically Modified Organism (GMOs) becoming more and more common.

Our company only sells Non-Hybrid, Non-GMO, Untreated, Heirloom and Open-Pollinated garden seeds, that you can save and regrow, trusting them to be true-to-type. Enabling you to provide a safe and healthy food source for your family right from your own backyard. It is our pledge that we will never knowingly buy or sell hybrid, treated, or genetically engineered seeds. It is our goal, to ensure, with the help of our customers, that the many wonderful garden seed varieties trusted for generations will be preserved and available for the generations to come. We want to make sure that those good old-fashioned, great tasting, non-hybrid, good for you seeds cherished and grown by so many of our ancestors will still be around in the years ahead!

Part of our mission in spreading this genetic diversity is offering you as many heirloom and open-pollinated vegetable seed varieties as we can, at an affordable price. We work to provide you with a large selection of garden seeds to choose from. If there is a specific vegetable variety you would like to see us carry, please e-mail us, we will see what we can do to obtain it. Our desire is to serve our customers, and to make your buying experience enjoyable. Let us know how we are doing, please send comments and/or suggestions to:

Not only can you find here the seeds you need for a self-sufficient growing experience, but also the planting/growing and harvest instructions for each kind of vegetable, as well as other pertinent or interesting information, to help your gardening experience be a full success. Our products also include a large selection of books to help you in growing your own food, to have a wealth of helpful information at your fingertips. The titles we carry cover a number of subjects including, gardening, seed saving, organic gardening, plant propagation, preserving food, cooking the harvest, country living and traditional skills, ensuring you the information you need to grow and save heirloom and open-pollinated seeds, and helping you to begin the path to self-sufficiency.

Other products we carry include, worm castings, a helpful Garden Planner, and seed saving envelopes. We have been very pleased with these envelopes ourselves, and they are a popular favorite with many of our customers! Our desire in choosing the items we carry is to help make your gardening experience enjoyable and as easy as possible.

Our family believes in the freedoms our country’s founders fought to establish, and we are doing our part to make sure that generations to come will have the ability to grow the seeds they want, and to provide their families with their own delicious home grown goodness. It is our aspiration to preserve this rich and beautiful heritage, and to keep these freedoms we cherish alive. Please join us in this effort, and grow your own gardens from heirloom/open-pollinated seeds. God Bless America, and May God Bless You!

The Safe Seed Pledge:

“Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative,

We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.

The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.”
