Snake River Seed Cooperative

Producing a Wide Diversity of Regionally-Adapted Seeds

a collective of family farmers in the Intermountain West Producing regionally-adapted seeds

Snake River Seed Cooperative is a collective of family farmers in the Intermountain West who work together to plant, grow, save, and share a wide diversity of regionally-adapted seeds, including vegetables, greens, herbs, grains, and flowers. They believe that sharing seed-saving knowledge with farmers in the region is vital to growing a robust, regional seedshed. 

In January 2022, they transitioned to a cooperative ownership model and currently have 10 grower owners and 5 employee owners. They operate as a benefit corporation.

Snake River Seed Cooperative growers have taken a pledge to keep their fields or gardens free of any synthetic herbicide, pesticide, or fertilizer. They strive to be the best possible stewards of the land under their care. Their seeds are grown in low-input systems that more closely mirror most home gardens. This ensures that the seeds in the packets will perform well in any garden.
