Raising traditional breeds and heirloom seeds
Many traditional livestock breeds and food seeds are threatened with extinction because they are unable to adapt to today’s large-scale agribusiness model relying on monoculture.
The traditional breeds and heirloom seeds that have been unable to adapt to large-scale agribusiness are an essential part of our agricultural Inheritance and have been passed down to us over hundreds of years from the dedicated families who labored before us.
We urge all small farmers and consumers to join us in the stewardship of rare breeds and heirloom seeds. Both add unsurpassed beauty to the diversified small farm. Most often, rare breeds exhibit minimal food requirements, disease resistance, docile temperaments, and strong maternal instincts. Heirloom seeds are more beautiful, and tastier, than their commercial counterparts. As small farmers and consumers, we can protect the genetic diversity in livestock, poultry, and seeds, safeguarding these treasures for future generations. We can keep alive traditions of old that may, one day, become useful again.
Happy Eating & Living,
