Welcome to Sow True Seed, specializing in open-pollinated, non-hybrid and GMO-free vegetable, herb, flower and cover crop seed as well as seasonal plant starts, sweet potato slips, asparagus crowns, seed potatoes and garlic from our retail store and seed warehouse in Asheville, North Carolina.

Guided by a rich tradition of ecological wisdom and preservation practiced daily in the mountains of Western North Carolina, we feature heirloom, certified organic, traditional, and Southern Appalachia favorites. We grow and source over 500 varieties of untreated seeds that remain true to type when saved and replanted.

Founded by a lifelong gardener for home gardeners, market growers and the seed-saving community at large, Sow True Seed is dedicated to providing open-pollinated, non-hybrid and non-GMO seed to yield a harvest both durable and delicious.
