Appalachian Seeds - Welcome!

Our 2024 seed crop is ready for sale! 

What an honor and privilege it is to save these seeds and their stories for this community of gardeners. Thank you for continuing to support our small family farm in our efforts to sustain this legacy of genetics for present and future growers. We will soon be offering medicinal herb seeds as well as a legacy greasy bean "Lazy Wife". Until then, check out the tomato seeds and plants catalogue....

We are a small, family farm producing certified organic heirloom tomato seeds and plants, eclectic medicinal and culinary herbs, and a diverse selection of heirloom vegetable plants.

We have been growing many heirloom tomato varieties since 1998. Our specialty has always been heirloom tomato seeds and heirloom tomato plants. (see list of tomatoes we grow on the family farm, with pictures and descriptions) Our work with heirloom tomatoes has been featured in Southern Living magazine (May 1999, Timeless Tomatoes), Back Home magazine (Mar/Apr 2002, Grow "Real" Tomatoes) and Blue Ridge Country magazine (July 2004, Meet Mr. Tomato) among others.


Today we offer many unique and unusual open-pollinated, annual and perennial flowers, culinary and medicinal herbs, pollinator plants, and gourmet vegetables (see a sample availability list with descriptions). In addition we are now growing a diverse selection of edible landscape plants including elderberry and raspberries in 1 gal containers.

We mainly sell our plants to regional garden centers and organically-minded stores like Hendersonville Community Co-op, French Broad Food Co-op, Earth Fare - Westgate Shopping Center, Thyme in the Garden in Woodfin and The Garden Spot in Fairview along with heirloom tomato seeds and heirloom tomato plants on our website. See bedding plants and tomatoes. We are also at the NC Herb Festival the first weekend in May at the WNC Ag Center, and Growin' in the Mountains in April each year at the WNC Farmers Market in Asheville, NC. This year we are pleased to join "Whole Bloomin' Thing" in Waynesville, NC. Haywood County, here we come!
