Descripción

A Waltham-type butternut squash that has been regionally adapted to Southern Appalachia in an organic, low till growing environment in Madison County over 15 years of tending this crop. Over these years I have selected plants that thrive without irrigation and are able to fend for themselves against insects and disease. They produce a heavy crop with exceptionally sweet flesh and excellent storage quality. I regularly get feedback from friends and customers on how sweet and flavorful they are. Properly stored, these squash easily make it into the following spring, and some even last into the summer, coming close to one full year of storage.

The Appalachian Seed Growers Collective

Things that are important to us:

  • Regionally Adapted – our seeds have been grown and saved in place for at least three years by farmers in the region.
  • Regionally Important – as a regional seed collective we are open to growing and stewarding seeds that have regional historic or cultural significance.
  • Seed Grower Community – we want to create community and opportunities for people to become seed growers in Southern Appalachia, including new farmers.
  • Seed Grower Economics – as a collective we are advocating for better seed contract prices and terms for our collective and sharing the economic risks of growing seeds.
  • Valuing Land and Labor – our internal economics pays growers for their time and land use in growing seeds, not for the quantity of seeds they produce. This eliminates inherent risks in growing seeds and varietal variations in yield but also allows growers to select for quality over quantity.

SEED SALES WILL RUN UNTIL MARCH 15TH OR UNTIL WE RUN OUT OF STOCK. ALL ORDERS WILL BE HAND-PACKED BY OUR COLLECTIVE THE THIRD WEEK OF MARCH AND SHIPPED BY THE LAST WEEK OF MARCH. Your seed purchasing directly supports the work of the collective and is very much appreciated in these early stages!
