71 Long ago we dedicated our work to restoring integrity in relationships between people, land, water and plants. Work and life have always been about connections of all kinds. Pushin' over 40 years in this work. Sifting thru life’s essence embedded in this thing called The Seed Test. Tests are absolutely basic, essential rules, modern numerical measurements of quality and health. Seed Tests shine light onto the viability of seeds. Seed Tests include purity, germination, weeds, and other crop. Test information coupled with seed counts per pound is used to calculate seeding rates. Work the numbers. Arrive at a place known as Pure Live Seeds per square foot.  Today, our team pushes the numbers a step further by adding years of horticultural experience. Embedded within our high diversity mixtures, we run a ratio of “evenness”. This extra step helps us balance characteristics of each species planted per square foot. When able, we dial back aggressive native plants and give meek plants a little boost... providing enough space for all to coexist.  We test each lot of seed. Information loads are sometimes overwhelming. We are dedicated to maintain high levels of integrity. We use independent seed testing laboratories, certified to follow national rules established by the Association of Official Seed Analysts.  Independent testing simply helps us verify purity and germination of our native seeds. But testing also gives us an official look for any bad weeds. We work hard to prevent contaminating our products. When we receive that seal of approval, we know that our part to prevent spreading alien species across the land has been done.  Integrity of our seeds comes from the ‘100% Pure Natives Only’ that we grow. It’s how we manage weeds on our farm. It comes from closely evaluating the integrity of our conservancy prairie harvest sites. Working on lands that have never been plowed requires a high level of mutual respect, stewardship and a sharp eye on details of the smallest particles. Our equipment is kept sterile and clean to protect these rare lands from contamination. We never use our farm equipment, harvesters or seed cleaning equipment to process alien species. We know by heart the discipline required to make an honorable harvest.  Honorable Harvests of Legendary Genetics since 1988 We are thankful for your interest in our work Dedicated innovators Native seed harvesting Agronomic production Ecological restoration 100% PURE NATIVES How to measure life’s dormant energy
