We are proud to be showcasing Franchi Seeds of Italy, the oldest seed company in the world. Franchi sources and commissions seeds direct from local traditional farmers all over Italy, home to some of the best produce in the world. Their seeds are mostly open-pollinated, heirloom varietals chosen for taste.
All of our seeds are non-GMO and free of controversial neonicotinoid pesticides, currently used for over 80% of the world’s seed production. Many Franchi vegetable varieties are also regional and they are not the mass produced, imported global ‘standard’ varieties found so commonly in seed packets today.
