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 1st: Unfortunately we are still currently unable to tend to the behind the scenes tasks needed to open orders. I realize this is a big disappointment but as a two-person business (really one and a half people with Scott's full-time off-farm job), we are more vulnerable to life's challenges, and right now we are really being challenged. Please know we are just as disappointed and frustrated as your are. If we do open for the spring season it will be mid-to late February at the earliest. I am truly sorry. - Eleanor (& Scott)
