It’s time to plant your home garden. This year, shake things up with unique offerings from two Hudson Valley seed companies.

Hudson Valley Seed Company

Ken Greene and Doug Muller’s company grew out of the Gardiner seed library Greene founded in 2004. Today, Hudson Valley Seed Company has an extensive catalog of non-GMO, open-pollinated seeds with a focus on rare and heirloom varieties that encourage crop diversity. Its signature art packs are collaborations between the farm and artists, who create unique designs that represent the back stories of the seeds inside.

Row 7 Seed Company

Co-founded by Blue Hill chef Dan Barber and Cornell plant breeder Michael Mazourek, this experimental seed company employs the same bred-for-flavor principles that diners pay top dollar for at Barber’s Stone Barns property. The short selection is utterly unique, featuring dramatically hued Midnight Roma Tomatoes; raw snacking Badger Flame Beets; buttery Upstate Abundance Potatoes; mild, sweet habañero derivatives; and experimental cucumbers, snow peas, and squash.
