"Our deep respect for the land and its harvest is the legacy of generations of farmers who put food on our tables, preserved our landscape, and inspired us with a powerful work ethic." ~ James H. Douglas, Jr

Nothing exemplifies our mission more than that quote and one word… respect. The amount of respect and awe that we have for American farmers that have broken their backs providing our food, herbalists who use the medicinal powers given to us by the land, and naturalists who cultivate this amazing world drives us every single day to do things the right way.

What does “the right way” mean? It’s simple…

  1. Our duty is to provide the finest American grown seeds that this amazing country has to offer. In a time where most companies are looking for the cheapest source and greatest profit margin which typically means seeds imported from China, we are traveling a different path. While our path is definitely more challenging, we are driven to grow amazing seeds that far exceed industry standards and supporting American growers who share those values.
  2. We will ALWAYS take care of our customers. If you have a problem with your order, we will handle it. If you need growing advice, we're always here to help. Bored and want to say “hey”, shoot us a message. We treat our store like a community and will do anything and everything to help you be successful in growing seeds into beautiful, thriving plants. Ultimately, we know that our success is dictated by your success.
  3. Give back to the community. To date, we have provided millions of seeds to community gardens, schools, church groups and those affected by natural disasters. For donations, please contact us at ryan@southernseedexchange.com.
Founded in 2019 as a veteran owned and family operated company in Florida by Ryan and Kimberly, we initially started out on Etsy where to date we have over 300,000 sales with more than 25,000 5-star reviews and their coveted Star Seller rating. Today, we now offer our seeds on Etsy, Amazon, eBay and SouthernSeeds.com. In a short time, Southern Seeds has grown to offer one of the largest selections of American grown, heirloom and non-GMO seeds available with more than 600 seed varieties offered. While our internet history may be short, Southern Seeds is just a continuation of the legacy of our family who has been offering amazing heirloom seeds for decades.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for choosing us for your seed needs and our commitment to you is that we will do anything and everything in our power to earn that trust you put in us.
