100% Michigan Grown Staple Crop Seeds that Empower Your Plant-based Lifestyle Goals

Great Lakes Staple Seeds

Welcome and thank you for stopping by!

February 14 2024: Most but NOT ALL of our inventory is updated - see FAQ
A quick note about fall-planted grains: best availability of our winter grains is late August/early September after harvest and processing.

Unfortunately technical issues are slowing me down so I continue to update the inventory. As always, thank you for your interest in our seeds and for your patience while I play catch-up. In addition to our seeds please be sure to check out our NEW! Digital Resources Collection.

For our international customers, unfortunately there are now countries I can no longer ship to due to phytosanitary certificate or import permit requirements. Before you get your hopes up, please refer to our No Ship Country List.

Great Lakes Staple Seeds prides itself on offering a diverse selection of seeds, each and every one is regionally adapted, savable, all-natural, untreated and grown with love on our Michigan homestead. We devote our efforts to producing high-quality seeds of staple crops that meet a wide variety of plant-based nutritional and functional goals using methods that are ecologically responsible and sustainable. We are honored and grateful that you choose to include our seeds in your garden as a part of your healthy lifestyle.
