At Valley Seed we strive to provide seed for plants known to do well in this semi-arid climate. We have spent countless hours talking to gardeners and small farmers and doing research to come up with our list of seeds.
We decided we would buy seed from only the best growers. Some of our conditions is that all of our seed needed to test out at a very high germination rate and as a rule would do well in semi-arid regions. Nothing we have tests less than 85% germination with most being over 90%. This helps assure that you’re getting the best value for your hard earned money. Many of our seeds are 3rd. generation S. Valley. We’ve been picking the best seeds from those plants that have shown good growth and flavor in the area and packaging these for you, our customers.
We are constantly being asked about our seeds and whether any are GMO or not.
This is our pledge to you—our customer.
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 people and communities.”
We are located in the South Valley of Albuquerque, NM and welcome visitors to stop by–we might even have the coffee pot on.
