About the Farm:

The farm is located in the rural finger lakes region of New York. We cultivate over 300 varieties of certified organic vegetables, herbs and flowers. Fruition Seeds manages over 25 acres on three farms, each one tucked in an isolated field to maintain genetic purity. We cultivate seed crops on less than a quarter of our land each season, raising cover crops on the rest to build fertility and minimize our disease pressure. We are fortunate to grow on some of the richest soil in the state and we strive to build these soils with every season.
