Appalachian Seeds - Welcome!

We are THRILLED to continue our presence at the EARTH FARE Westgate as they reopened in 2020. We missed being there this spring and are so excited to be back when they reopen! Look for our plants on the red and white cart in front of the store!

Our 2021 seed crop is ready for sale! Check out some of our new varieties we are bringing back into the catalogue this year. We're so excited to share these delicious 'new' finds with you!


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 availability list with descriptions). In addition we are now growing a diverse selection of edible landscape plants including elderberry, blueberries, grapes, and figs in 1 gal containers.

We mainly sell our plants to regional garden centers and organically-minded stores like Earth Fare, Hendersonville Community Co-op, French Broad Food Co-op, Villagers in West Asheville 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, and Growin' in the Mountains the last weekend in April each year at the WNC Farmers Market in Asheville, NC.
