Adaptive Seeds was established in 2009 and is based at Open Oak Farm near Sweet Home, Oregon. We steward and disseminate rare, diverse, and resilient seed varieties for ecologically minded farmers, gardeners, and seed savers. Our catalog is full of robust, productive varieties as well as rare adaptive gems. Most of our seed is adapted to the Pacific Northwest and other short-season northern climates. We sell only public domain, open-pollinated (OP) seed, as well as many diverse gene pool mixes.
NONE of our seeds are proprietary hybrids (F1), patented, PVP, or genetically modified (GMO). All of our seed is grown without chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides, and NONE of it is treated.
We grow nearly all of our seed ourselves and do not buy and resell mass produced seed, like other seed companies do. What isn’t grown by us, is grown by a handful of regionally local friends.
We are here to provide you with excellent quality seed for your food production needs, and part of that goal is to provide you with quality foundation material for your own locally adapted seed saving and stewardship needs, wherever your field or garden happens to be.We want everyone to be seed savers, but if you cannot save seed in your garden or on your farm, we would love to be your seed stewards.
