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

Dry Farmed Varieties

Dry farming is the growth of crops without irrigation. Common in areas that experience a cool, wet spring followed by a warm, dry season, shifts in weather patterns suggest dry farming is a practice becoming more suitable for Michigan - especially given July 2018's total rainfall of a mere 0.6 inches!

Each year grown, seeds develop their "memory" of the conditions experienced by its mother plant, building resilience to environmental stresses. Our intention is to develop multi-generational dry farmed lines to better position our gardens for the shifting growing conditions.

We routinely rely on heavy mulching of our dry farmed varieties.
