Yonder Hill Farm is Garrett and Chris, with daughters Ruth and Joyce, on a heritage homestead located near Nova Scotia’s beautiful South Shore. We’ve been growing seed commercially since 2009 and believe it’s an important way to support food security and food producers. We grow over 150 varieties of vegetable, grain, flower, and herb seeds, all by hand and ecologically. We sell only what we’ve carefully grown ourselves, which means we can assure high quality seeds for your garden.
Browse our seeds online here or find them locally in our seed racks at the Bridgewater Seedy Saturday, Fancy Pants Café, the LaHave Bakery, Wile’s Lake Farm Market, the Port Grocer, and the Bridgewater Farmer’s Coop. We are also proud growers for Annapolis Seeds, a Nova Scotian Seed Company selling 100% Maritime Canada Grown Seeds.
We accept interest in apprenticeships or work/stays June-October. Please get in touch for more details.
