Growers Network Focus on David Pendergrass
An integral part of our plant variety preservation work, and one reason why we can
offer so many different varieties every year, is our Growers Network. By working
with a select group of experienced, small farm-based seed producers, we not only
continue to expand the number of varieties we are protecting and offering, but
we are also helping to support other like-minded preservationists.
David Pendergrass is an old friend of ours who works from his
ancestral family farm in Middle Tennessee. He raises various long-season
varieties that we have trouble growing up here in Oregon. Additionally,
David's own collection of heirloom varieties is available exclusively from the
Victory Seed Company.
David founded the New Hope Seed Company as a regional resource
working to preserve Southern heirlooms that were rapidly disappearing. One area
of focus has been his work building an impressive collection of rare tobacco
If you unfamiliar with tobacco plants, they are in my opinion,
quite impressive. Varieties range in mature height from three feet to over ten
feet with leaves that can be up to three feet long. At the top of their stalks,
they produce clusters with numerous flowers that are attractive to pollinators.
And all of that plant structure grows, in one season no less, from a tiny seed
that is about the size of a pinhole! If you are interested in tobacco seeds, we
offer over 60 unique varieties here -
Tobacco Plants Available Now ...For those of you that would like to start from plants, David
offers a select number of varieties every year and is currently accepting orders
for shipment later this spring. You can order plants directly from David from

About Our Work - If you
have read our mission statement,
you know that we do not exist as an organization to simply sell seeds. We sell
seeds to fund our plant variety preservation work and to keep rare, heirloom and
open-pollinated varieties available to home gardeners. We are a little
different from other
seed companies in this way. Thank you for your continued support.
of our seeds are open-pollinated, non-hybrid, public domain or open source, and not chemically treated. As an early signer of the "Safe Seed Pledge" we will never knowingly sell GMO seeds. Many of our seeds are family heirlooms, most are old standard varieties that are hard to find.
