WE ARE BRIAN, CRYSTINE, RIO, ERIC, ERICA, ROWAN AND BABY MEIRA
AND WE LOVE WHAT WE DO
Uprising Seeds is a small family run organic seed farm and the culmination of years of fresh market farming, variety trialing, seed production and breeding work, and most importantly, a decades-long love affair with food and its power to bring people together. Our ideal vision of seed sustainability involves farmers and gardeners as the stewards of the varieties that they depend on. We are therefore committed to strengthening the public commons of seed genetics by working to preserve and improve open-pollinated varieties keeping biodiversity strong through adaptability and resilience.
Relationships are the cornerstone upon which we define ourselves as we pass on and add to the stories of these seeds. The health of our relationship with the land, the seeds, and ultimately the food that sustains us has the power to shape our present and define our future. We believe anyone can have a garden, anyone can save seed, and the more we connect to producing food, the stronger our communities become. Seeds are a gift to be shared, hard work to harvest and yours to plant. Uprising Seeds is adamantly opposed to GMO’s and considers it a challenge and honor to take part in the rebuilding of healthy and just food systems for all.
We love what we do. We grow our future together.
ALL OUR SEEDS ARE OPEN-POLLINATED, CERTIFIED ORGANIC BY THE USDA, AND GROWN
BY SMALL FAMILY FARMS IN THE PNW
We are proud to have been Washingtons first 100% Certified Organic seed company. We are farmers first, and the majority of our work is still in the fields: performing variety trials, improving and breeding crops, and producing seed. We produce more than half of the seeds we sell in our catalog at our home farm, Uprising Organics, just north of Bellingham, WA. The remainder of our varieties are sourced from our fantastic network of family farms in Washington, Oregon, N. CA and Idaho. Our growers are among the best and most experienced in the Organic Seed trade and our gratitude towards them is tremendous.
We welcome you to join us in this joyous uprising!!
