Baker Creek carries one of the largest selections of seeds from the 19th century. Why is this important?
Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds carries one of the largest selections of seeds from the 19th century, including many Asian and European varieties - some 1,800 varieties of vegetables, flowers and herbs. This is so important because the company has become a place to promote and preserve our agricultural and culinary heritage.
Founded by Jere Gettle in 1998, and now joined by his wife Emilee and children, It is their goal to educate everyone about a better, safer food supply and fight gene-altered frankenfood and the companies that support it. They also work extensively to supply free seeds to many of the world’s poorest countries, as well as here at home in school gardens and other educational projects. They have a large mail order catalogue, magazine, and two store locations - the Baker Creek Seed Store headquarters in Mansfield, MO, and a second one in Sonoma County, CA, in the beautiful town of Petaluma
When I contacted Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds to sponsor our Ugly Produce Beauty Pageant on September 17, in Petaluma, CA, they enthusiastically said YES! Ugly Produce is Beautiful is partnering with the California Farmers' Guild to host the Ugly Produce Beauty Pageant during the Farmer Olympics.
We couldn't be more pleased! We look forward to having more co-branded partnerships to help further our cause. Please contact me at Sarah@FoodEMedia.com if interested. Thanks!
