Organic Grain, Forage, and Cover Crop Seed Suppliers
Below is a list of organic grain seed suppliers. Other excellent resources for availability of organic seed are:
- ATTRA publication of organic seed suppliers
- The Saving Our Seeds Project
- OMRI organic seed supplier list
Saving Our Seeds has announced that it will offer a free Certified Organic Seed Sourcing Service to support certified organic growers in finding the seeds they need, as well as being clear when the seeds they are looking for are not available. The service accepts lists from organic growers of the seeds they wish to plant and replies with a list of dealers that sell those seeds. Conversely, if no organic seeds are available, the service is able to provide documentation suitable for organic certification agents. The group is also conducting a Certified Organic Seed Availability Survey to find what seeds growers are most in need of. The seed sourcing service currently covers seeds, tubers and rootstocks. http://www.savingourseed.org/pages/sourcing.htm
Also, Chatham County’s Small Farms Website has a list of sources of untreated and certified organic cover crop seed.
***Check with the seed companies and your certification agency before purchasing seed to ensure organic status.
