I have been a fan of Baker Creek for many years, always turning to them for hard to find, heirloom seeds for vegetables, flowers and herbs. I’ve always been pleased with the germination ratio of the seeds and the virility of the plants that are grown from them. They also have a great variety of merchandise available, perfect for the gardener in your life. And for those who are just starting out in gardening and can get overwhelmed, I find they have a great selection of seed collections to get you started.

About Baker Creek

Jere Gettle always had a passion for growing things, and at age 3 he planted his first garden. Ever since that day, he wanted to be involved in the seed industry. So at the age of 17, he printed the first small Baker Creek Heirloom Seed catalog in 1998. The company has grown to offer 1750 varieties of vegetables, flowers and herbs—the largest selection of rare, heirloom varieties in the U.S.A.

Baker Creek carries one of the largest selections of seeds from the 19th century, including many Asian and European varieties. The company has become a tool to promote and preserve our agricultural and culinary heritage. The company and seeds have been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Associated Press, O, The Oprah Magazine, NPR, Martha Stewart, and many others. Gardeners can request a free 212-page color catalog or buy their 356-page Whole Seed Catalog. They now distribute to 500,000 catalogs to gardeners nationally.

Baker Creek started hosting festivals in 2000 as an idea to bring gardeners, homesteaders and natural food enthusiasts together to exchange thoughts, seeds, listen to speakers and enjoy vendors, old-time music and much more. These festivals gave birth to the idea for our pioneer village, Bakersville. Other projects include our trial gardens, seed collecting expeditions, our popular online forums at and educational produce exhibits.

Over the last several years, Jere Gettle and his wife Emilee have branched out into other related projects as well, including the nationally distributed, Heirloom Gardener magazine, which is now in its eleventh year of publication. They have also expanded to a location in Sonoma County, California, in the beautiful town of Petaluma. Their most recent project is the restoration and preservation of the Wethersfield, Connecticut landmark, Comstock, Ferre & Company, the oldest continuously operating seed company in New England. They have written two books with Hyperion, a division of ABC/Disney. These works feature heirloom vegetables and their work with seeds and food.

They also work extensively to supply free seeds to many of the world’s poorest countries, as well as here at home in school gardens and other educational projects. It is their goal to educate everyone about a better, safer food supply and fight gene-altered, Frankenfood and the companies that support it.

All of their seed is non-hybrid, non-GMO, non-treated and non-patented.

They do not buy seed from Monsanto-owned Seminis. They boycott all gene-altering companies. They are not members of the pro-GMO American Seed Trade Organization! They work with a network of about 150 small farmers, gardeners and seed growers to bring you the best selection of seeds available! Many of the varieties they sell were collected by them on their travels abroad.

They offer over 1800 fine varieties! Unique seeds from over 75 countries!

Is it any wonder why I love this company so much?!

    My daughter just shared your link to me on facebook… I’ve loved gardening and have not had the opportunity for the past 11 years due to living in an apartment…. but this coming spring I will have plenty of opportunity to once again garden as I was recently married and moved to a home and my sweetheart plans on helping me plant a garden…. Whoo Hoo! I can’t wait to get your seed catalog and begin the planning… As for peppers I can’t seem to get enough of them… It would be exciting to receive my first seeds for my first garden in 11 years…
    can’t wait to get started… I’ve already shared your link on my facebook page and since I work at a health clinic that focuses on education, as well as starting a community garden project, well… I’m going to be sharing your link with my supervisor at work as well…

  150. 150

    I really enjoyed checking out your website, but I was wondering why so many things are only available in the US? Like the rare seed catalogue for instance. Oh and I grow hot peppers every year for my hubby…
