CANADIAN ORGANIC SEED COMPANY

Dear Gardener, Farmer and BEE Friends!

"Seeds are the wealth under pinning food production systems and the currency for food security".

We are a family-owned seed company that specializes in breeding and growing our own crop varieties for vegetables, flowers, herbs and very rare edible perennials specially for organic gardening and short seasons. 

 Our breeding focus is disease resistance, pest resistance and production. Over the years, we have won many awards for our vegetables.

Our farm and production fields are located in Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, Canada.

We celebrated our 10th year anniversary in 2019 for organic crop production.

 Our Agricultural Philosophy

We have stayed true and committed to our own beliefs, to a natural comprehensive organic enterprise.  We believe that the foundation of agriculture, no matter which branch, is founded upon sustainable and holistic management practices that produce healthy soils, plants, food and environments for ALL species in our global community.

 Organic crops are bred to perform in organic gardens with strong natural disease/pest resistance and drought/cold tolerance for climate change. Enhanced soil fertility is improved with natural fertilizers, cover crop residue and rotation. Soils are regenerated, plants thrive, and the environment is protected. 

Our farming system includes rotational cropping management for soil and crop health, a 55-ac. ecological reserve for wildlife, an apiary for crop pollination/production, 32 acres of native tree seedlings (28,000 seedlings) to stabilize water runoff during spring thaw and to encourage endangered bird species and beneficial insects.

         

To provide a comprehensive shopping experience, we also offer very rare "wild crafted" seed varieties such as the farthest northern known source of wild paw paw (largest native fruit in America), nut trees include Shagbark hickory, Black walnut, Butternut, all of which were once native and now almost extinct. All wild crafted seeds are sustainably sourced. By growing out these very rare accessions, you are ensuring the genetic survival of once very abundant and necessary food sources for native wildlife and pollinators that evolved alongside of those plant species. Thank you!    

We wish you a productive growing season.

BEE healthy & happy!
