Canadian Small Farms & Urban Agriculture

Heritage Farm is a small family farm educational nursery in Northwestern Canada that has been growing, saving and researching heritage garden seeds, grains and plants for generations. We offer workshops and resources for new growers to learn about permaculture design, organic gardening and small farm production. Read about our Canadian Northern Heirloom & Open Pollinated Seed Trials in the Farm Journal Blog.

Each year a limited supply of fresh open pollinated and heirloom seeds hardy for northern Canadian gardens is made available by mail order. Be sure to sign up below for email updates about how to start seeds, grow plants and care for your new garden as you begin your journey towards a sustainable, healthy lifestyle.
