The 1840 Farm Heirloom Seeds Easy Keepers Collection includes heirloom varieties that are perfectly suited for the beginning gardener. Each of the varieties can be directly sown into a small garden plot or in containers. They are also among our favorite varieties to plant in the gardens at 1840 Farm. This listing includes one packet of seeds for each of the following varieties:
All of the varieties in our collection are accompanied by plant profiles and planting instructions so that you can enjoy growing these varieties in your garden as much as we do here at 1840 Farm. The seeds in our collection are all heirlooms and non-GMOs and provided by a family owned seed purveyor.
We offer two other heirloom seed collections for purchase in our 1840 Farm Heirloom Seed Collection. Our Three Sisters Garden Collection includes three heirloom varieties so that you can grow your own historic Three Sisters Garden. The Heirloom Tomato Collection includes three of our favorite heirloom tomato varieties and one heirloom basil variety that we grow every year in the garden at 1840 Farm.
The original illustrations for our collection were created by Jennifer Sartell of Iron Oak Farm. They are available for purchase in the Iron Oak Farm Shop on Etsy. The heirloom, non-GMO seeds in our collection are from family owned seed purveyor Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company.
We hope that you will enjoy growing these heirlooms for your family’s table as much as we do. We invite you to share updates and photos from your garden, your animals, and your harvest with other members of The 1840 Farm Community on Facebook and Flickr.
