This family owned and run business started out in a small general store in Zeeland, MI back in 1915 as a way for the local farmers to purchase seeds at the start of the season, and then have an outlet for their produce at the end of the growing season. The founder passed the business to his two sons, who split the business into seeds and produce. The seed store was established in 1955 in downtown Zeeland and quickly expanded to include lawn and garden needs, pet food and supplies as well as a full line of seeds. We pride ourselves on our quick, efficient service and our quality seeds.
Our main offerings include: hundreds of heirloom, rare and hard to find flower seeds, vegetable seeds and herb seeds for both the home gardener and the wholesale trade, as well as large, fresh flower bulbs for both spring and fall planting.
Here at the Hudson Valley Seed Company, we are both farmers and storytellers. We are committed to growing organically, sourcing locally and sustainably, and preserving crop diversity by selecting unique, rare, and hard-to-find varieties. Every seed in our catalog is open pollinated, many are heirloom and organic, and they are never GMO. We were one of the first companies to sign the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI), and we will remain committed to our values of sustainability to the last. We believe that a seed is more than meets the eye: it is a time capsule telling tales of the plants, crops, and people that came before us, and we work with a range of artists as diverse as our seeds to pass those stories down to present and future gardeners.
