Welcome to Yonder Hill Farm!

Summertime, and the living is… busy!  Seed orders continue to ship out weekly – but our energy is focused on the 2024 seed crops in our garden so we appreciate your patience for customer service.  Please note that seed garlic is available to order for fall planting starting in August.

By buying our seeds, you are not only supporting small scale sustainable seed production, you are getting high quality, spray-free, non-GMO, open-pollinated/heirloom, and rare varieties- all adapted to a homestead garden. We hope to become your trusted source for high quality garden seeds!

We are genuine Seed Producers: we are not a Seed Company that buys and resells corporate commodity seed. We’ve been growing and breeding our seeds commercially for over 15 years. We only sell seeds that we’ve produced ourselves in our fields and garden, and all of the pictures you’ll see on our website were taken from plantings of our seeds, mostly at our farm, including variety profile pictures! The small scale of our production allows for rigorous quality control, and our homesteading way of life means that we grow varieties that perform for us in the garden and in the kitchen.


Thanks for supporting sustainable seed production in Canada!

so kind and helpful!

Picked up our seeds for our first attempt at our garden! These folks are so kind and helpful! VERY

Thanks Yonder Hill for your great products!

My seeds started germinating less than 24 hours after I put them in seedling trays! It looks like this year is going to be even more productive than last year, when I ended up giving away a lot of food to friends as there was so much. Thanks Yonder Hill for your great products! I was late planting this year in Halifax and Yonder Hill Farms were the only place I could find with seeds

Brazilian Snow Peas

We’ve had a mostly sunless summer with temps in low to mid-50s. We planted Dwarf Gray, and Yonder Hill’s ‘Brazilian Snow’ peas. Today, we harvested both peas with the Brazilian Snow producing a mature and robust harvest. Thank you Yonder Hill for carrying Brazilian Snow peas. Would like to buy

As soon as I saw

As soon as I saw my seeds, I had a feeling that they came from plants that had been grown with care – I was further convinced by the 100% germination rate and the fact that, despite the worst growing season we’ve ever had here, the corn and beans we grew from those seeds thrived and produced a lovely crop! Thank you so much for providing such great seeds; and service,

My newest ‘goto’ place for seeds

I came across the website for Yonder Hill Farm just browsing the internet in my timely search for pimento seeds. This pepper was new to me and I wanted to try growing it to add as a flavour to recipes that have recently caught my eye. I cannot speak highly enough of their willingness to answer questions about growing. I certainly appreciated the expertise imparted and knowledge that was shared. I ordered not just the

Yonder Hill seeds grow delicious and satisfying harvests!

I only dabbled at gardening until two years ago when I felt the urge to get serious about it. The seeds that I have gotten from Yonder Hill have resulted in very satisfying bumper crops of delicious vegetables. Even though I’m figuring things out as I go along and making tons of mistakes, I am still being rewarded with high germination rates, robust plants and high productivity. Plus, everything tastes SOOOOO good. Yonder Hill clearly

I always go to Yonder Hill first.

I love Yonder Hill Farm! They grow seeds of diverse heritage varieties and they do it with love. In my experience, their germination rate is almost 100%. Their seeds are locally adapted to the South Shore NS climate, so they are perfect for gardeners in this region. I always go to Yonder Hill

I won’t be looking anywhere else for seeds any more

I live on a small homestead in Eastern Cape Breton. In 2020 I decided to try and source some seeds from a local grower as opposed to one of the larger more well-know suppliers in Canada.. As an avid amateur seed saver, my specific requirement was to find a supplier that supplied seeds that were 100% organic from their own farm. I had the incredibly good fortune to find Yonder Hill Farm! I had made

Seeds and other things

I have to say thank you for the great seeds that I got for my garden of vegetables. I never lost one, they all grew. The service to get them to me was prompt. Then I asked about asparagus and between myself and Yonder Hill, we tried something with Yonder Hill sending me Asparagus Crowns through the mail. It was a trial thing to see how they would do. EVERY CROWN grew. I had some

I grow my own botanicals

I grow my own botanicals and additives (calendula, spinach etc) for my soaps, and this year I opted for locally grown and harvested seed from Yonder Hill Farm, a stone’s throw away. And by golly – I should have done this all along! Yonder Hill Seeds did not disappoint, the germination rate was the best I have ever experienced. Their calendula blooms are stunning, and the amount of seeds per package was fantastic. These folks

Best Seeds

Last year was my first at an attempt to gardening so I ordered seeds from various companies to test out. Yonder Hill seeds produced the best veggies by far, prefect and beautiful and so delicious! Can’t wait to get my new order in now that I’ve found a trusted seed

watching life grow through your seeds

Hi there! I just wanted to reach out as I started growing tomatoes last growing season (2022) and used your seeds. Beginner’s luck gave me a 50% germination rate and a lovely start to vegetable gardening. This year, w/ more love & knowledge about growing, my seed germination success rate was a grand 100%, which left me w 130 baby tomato seedlings – an abundant tomato farm if you will. Amidst living off grid without

Seeds from a local farm

Our family is relocating to Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia from Northern Ontario. We wanted to order our seeds from a local farm and came across Yonder Hill Farm. Their website was easy to order from and we received our order only 5 days after placing it! They even gave us an extra pack of seeds as a gift. We love the seed packaging and can’t wait to start our garden this year at our new
