Yonder Hill Farm is Garrett & Chris, with children Ruth, Joyce & Flora, on a heritage homestead located on Nova Scotia’s beautiful South Shore. We’ve been growing seed commercially since 2009 – we established Yonder Hill Farm in 2012 – and believe it’s an important way to support food security & food producers. We grow close to 200 varieties of vegetable, grain, flower, & herb seeds, all by hand & ecologically. We sell only what we’ve carefully grown ourselves, which means we can assure high quality seeds for your garden.

We are a family farm… & it all happens here!

– planting, tending, & harvesting
– processing & packaging
– website & customer service

We know our seeds intimately & rely on them for the bulk of our own homestead food production.  We hope you love them as much as we do.  Happy planting!
