Rare & Heirloom Vegetable and Herb Seeds
Ox and Robin produces rare and heirloom vegetable and herb seeds, all sustainably grown in Western MA and selected to thrive in our changing Northeast climates.
This year we are offering seeds from 24 different varieties of rare and heirloom vegetables and herbs. Our seeds are carefully selected to thrive in the growing conditions of the New England and the Northeast. We choose varieties that do well here and in the field, we save seeds from only the best and most productive plants. All of our varieties are open-pollinated, so the seeds from plants growing this next summer will grow “true to seed”, producing off-spring that are just like their parents. That’s how these delicious heirloom varieties continue, getting passed along from one generation of gardeners to the next.
Our Growing Practices
Our seeds are Non-GMO, and are grown without herbicides or pesticides in western Massachusetts. We use a variety of growing practices to conserve water and enhance the biological activity and diversity of the soil, including mulching, rotating crops, and composting.
