We Signed the Safe Seed Pledge!

By on February 09, 2011

We have signed the Safe Seed Pledge... No GMO

More U.S. gardeners will be planting vegetables this spring, a boom that started in 2009 and increases each year. The recent USDA approval of genetically modified (GM) alfalfa fanned public anxiety about genetically modified food, and increased gardeners’ desire for complete information about the source of the vegetable seeds they plant.

Here at Peaceful Valley Farm & Garden Supply we signed the Safe Seed Pledge, confirming we will NOT knowingly sell genetically modified (GM) seeds to farmers and home gardeners. The Safe Seed Pledge was created by the Council for Responsible Genetics, which maintains a Safe Seed Sourcebook online at http://www.councilforresponsiblegenetics.org/help/TakeAction.aspx.

Does your safe pledge extend to fruit trees.  I would like to buy bare root fruit trees if they are GMO free.

Steve Sert, The Safe Seed Pledge is only about seeds. None of our fruit trees are GMO.

1.Are companies required to state that they are NO GMO or is that something that responsible growers just do to keep themselves honest?
2. On the flipside, growers that use GMO seeds are not legally required to state that they use GMO’s Is that correct? Obviously, chain stores could give a sh*** .......what they buy or what’s inside their product. Yes or No?
3. Does it always have to be more costly to do organic?
Thanks.

Danny, It is up to the seed companies to give out information about whether or not they sell GMO seeds. There are not GMO labeling requirements yet for seeds, produce, or processed food.

Organic actually is cheap if you grow your own food! Use organic seeds and growing methods, and you’ll know just what’s in your food.

Thanks for your support!

Does this extend to your grass seeds? Do you sell any seeds with Seminis sources, or purchase from companies that are partners with Seminis or Monsanto? I am looking for GMO free organic grass seed with no ties to Monsanto or Seminis.

Laura, The Safe Seed Pledge applies to all the seeds we sell, including pasture grasses and cover crops. We were active in the California campaign to require labeling of GMO food. We DO NOT purchase from any companies with ties to Monsanto. Thank you for asking!

I noticed none of your berry bushes are organic and do not say if they are GMO or not… I would love to purchase them from you but don’t want any GMO in our garden!!

Posted by Elizabeth on Mar. 01, 2015 at 5:38:12 PM

Yes the berries are not certified organic but they are Non-GMO.
