Hawthorn Farm Organic Seeds
Hawthorn Farm produces certified organic farm selected, open-pollinated vegetable, herb, and flower seeds in Central Ontario (zone 5).
Certified organic by Pro-Cert since 1996, Hawthorn Farm started as most independent seed companies do, on a kitchen table with a single page printed catalogue filled by a handful of offerings. With over a decade of growing, selecting and saving organic seeds, we now have hundreds of exciting and tasty offerings.
In addition, we work to support the seed community by hosting workshops and educational tours on our farm.  Working closely with our counterparts in a robust network of Canadian seed growers to promote access to high quality regionally adapted seed is another endeavor we value.
We are passionate about seed, and believe strongly that access to high quality seed grown for Canadians in Canada to the best of our abilities helps to build a more secure resilient food system in our local communities and nationally.
