The Art of Foraging

In the past, tribes and small communities either searched far and wide for the best soil or they made do. Forage plants are designed to withstand tougher climates. They also allow us access to all sorts of out of season plants and vegetables throughout the year. Their overt durability, productivity, and overall longevity and health allow these plants to produce results for farms for long durations of time with a high turnover. This allows farmers to maximize their efficiency beyond expectations, and reach quotas with certainty.

They only really rely on soil, water, sunlight, and some very basic nutrients. We have expanded our forage plant catalog to include a whole new slerw of groundbreaking new plants that have previously been quite hard to come by.

We are truly expanding the breadth of reach of these favored plants, and driving a decisive stake into the quick trend towards massively commercialized and mass-produced products. They devalue the produce quality and are ultimately less healthy because of it. Practice a healthier lifestyle for customers and reach the demographics that value true quality seeds.

The old adage goes along the lines of our business. We do not feed a man a fruit, but we teach a man to plant. it is this very concept that drives our business into the future and beyond.
