Welcome to Victory Seeds - Rare, Open-pollinated & Heirloom Garden Seeds
The Victory Seed Company is a small, family owned and operated organization that works to preserve plant varieties by locating, growing, documenting and offering rare, open-pollinated, non-GMO, non-hybrid, heirloom seeds to home gardeners. Unlike most seed companies, we actually grow seeds on our farm and help to support other small seed farmers by purchasing what we don't grow from our network of growers. We work hard at being the best heirloom seed company and strive to be your main seed source. (You can read what other folks say about us at the Garden Watchdog.) By purchasing Victory SeedsĀ®, you are partnering with us to support our primary mission of preserving heritage or heirloom seed varieties as well as horticultural history. With your help we are continually increasing the number of varieties that we protect and offer to home gardeners.
