Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we ship pepper seeds internationally. We are unable to ship plants and avocado seeds internationally.
When will my plant order be shipped?
Depending on several factors (the plant variety type, weather, etc), plants typically take 65 to 90 days to reach a shippable size, but all pre-orders will ship sometime in the Spring.
Can you offer a shipping discount?
Seed orders over $20 ship free (US only) . Our current shipping service for live plants is weight-based, so the shipping cost cannot be adjusted as each additional plant increases the weight of the package which increases the shipping cost.
Is your farm open to visitors?
Unfortunately our growing facility is not staffed with employees to give tours nor do we have security personnel to handle visits. We do not have liability insurance for non-employees to visit our property. We also do not have the required OSHA certification to host visitors.
Can you ship fresh peppers?
Sorry, due to the complications of shipping fresh peppers, we are only able to sell seeds at this time.
Do you pesticides or herbicides?
We only use all-natural growing techniques. We do not use pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or any other non-natural products. We use the same techniques our ancestors used hundreds of years ago-- we use compost and worm castings to feed our plants, mulch to conserve water, and biological pest controllers such as ladybugs, praying mantises, and birds to combat aphids and hornworms.
Do you sell live plants and are you able to ship them to me?
Yes, we offer live plants for any seed variety that we currently have in stock. If the plant you are interested in is out of stock, please send us a message so we can help.
Do you isolate your pepper plants?
Yes. Each pepper variety is grown in isolation in order to minimize the chance of cross pollination.
Do you offer deals for those of us who want to buy in bulk?
Yes, we have a Wholesale Program that provides a discount and the option of having your own custom logo on the seed packaging.
What are GMOs?
Genetic Modification is a technique that changes the genetic makeup of cells, including alteration of genetic materials and other biologically important chemicals, and allows genes to move across species. It produces new combinations of genes and traits that do not occur in nature. Plants that have been altered in this way are called GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, or GE, genetically engineered. GMO plants are modified to include genes allowing them to survive the application of chemical herbicides, or cause the plants to produce pesticides. Our plants are all natural and not genetically modified.
What kind of health benefits do peppers provide?
They are high in potassium, very high in Vitamin A, and Vitamin C - a small red pepper contains more Vitamin C than a whole orange! They are also low in calories, and the capsaicin in peppers also increases your body's metabolism.
I am interested in dropshipping your products. Is that ok with you?
Yes, any interested party is welcome to dropship our items.
Two seeds sprouted in one cell, when should I separate them?
We recommend separating the seedlings as soon as possible to avoid allowing the roots time to become intertwined. Separating seedlings is risky, so be careful to ensure at least one seedling stays intact.
I still have other questions. What is the best way to contact you?
