Heirloom SquashThanks for dropping by. We decided to start a blog as a means of keeping in touch with you more often. Whether it’s an ice storm that is slowing us down and delaying your order, preparations for a festival, an announcement of a new issue of The Heirloom Gardener going to press, new critters around the farmĀ or road trips we’re on, we want you to know about it. Through this outlet, we hope to provide a place for you to take a glimpse into our days at the seed company and around Bakersville. There is never a dull moment around here!

Currently we are working as hard as we can to process the many orders that have been flooding our facilities. To those of you who are waiting on your order, we thank you for your patience and understanding. The start of the year has been amazing–both stressful and exciting! It’s inspiring to see how many first-time gardeners are jumping in with both feet to suppliment their grocery budget. So many people want to get back to the basics and learn how their Grandparents made it through tight times. As the old saying goes, what goes around comes around. We’re so glad to see so many families coming full circle and getting their hands dirty in the garden again!

Once again we appreciate you stopping by, feel free to leave us a comment anytime. We look forward to keeping in touch with you and sharing all that is happening on our farm.

Many blessings,
Emilee Gettle
