From our gardens to yours....
Prairie Road Organic Farm has been certified organic since 1977. A primary focus of our farm is to feed ourselves and to eat well. We have bred and selected vegetable varieties that perform well agronomically in our own organic gardens, are well adapted to our northern growing region, AND bring joy to our table! Yes, our varieties need to perform, but as Dan’s brother, David, so aptly states, “They also need to be beautiful and delicious.”


All of our seed is grown on our farm near Fullerton, ND, which has been certified organic since 1977. Our certifying agency is International Certification Services in Medina, ND. We began producing certified organic vegetable seed for organic seed companies in 1997.

We are proud to offer seed of the varieties we have been working to breed, improve and secure in the public domain for decades... direct to gardeners and market growers under our own family farm's label, Prairie Road Organic Seed! Nothing brings us more pleasure than being able to share the fruits of our labor with you!

Eat well, Dear Friends!

Our Manifesto Prairie Road Organic Seed

 

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative:

We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.

The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately people and communities.
