We are a MOFGA-certified organic repacker and handler of seed and feed.
Organically grown seed is labeled OG. We buy organic seed from certified organic farms and other certified organic handlers. Any seed you buy from us that is labeled organic comes from one of those two sources.
All our seed is untreated.
The ecological label ECO after the variety name describes uncertified seed grown without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers on farms which maintain an active soil-building program. Often this seed is as sustainably grown as the certified-organic seed, but some farmers eschew certification for a variety of reasons, ideological, economic and otherwise.
Soil amendments, fertilizers and pesticides
are labeled as:
USDA NOP rule concerning disease and pest control: You must follow the National Organic Program rule 205.206 (e) “When the practices provided for in paragraphs (a) through (d)…are insufficient to prevent or control crop pests, weeds, and diseases, a biological or botanical substance or a substance included on the National List of synthetic substances allowed for use in organic crop production may be applied to prevent, suppress or control pests, weeds, or diseases: Provided, that, the conditions for using the substance are documented in the organic system plan.”

The certification information is the best of our knowledge at press time. We cannot be responsible for errors or changes. In order to be certain that a product is allowed, check with your certifier.
*The Organic Foods Production Act of 1990 as amended authorizes the U.S. Department of Agriculture to administer the National Organic Program (NOP) in order to implement the provisions of the Act.
