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 company!!

I am a lazy and neglectful gardener and Yonder Hill seeds turn into plants that thrive despite me. It’s amazing!!
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 select their varieties for flavour and only grow the very best. I especially recommend their butternut squash (sweet with a creamy texture) and their Amish Paste tomatoes (which make thick and rich tomato sauce and tomato paste). All of the seeds I’ve gotten from Yonder Hill have exceeded my expectations and have been forgiving of my inexperience. Working with Yonder Hill’s seeds has been an important part of me feeling encouraged to continue gardening, and that is a great gift. Thank you!!! (I’m attaching a picture of a small fraction of my Amish Paste Tomato harvest.
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 sweet pimento seeds but also decided on the Napoleon green pepper seeds. Ordering was quick and delivery was fast. The seeds did not disappoint. All that I planted germinated rather quickly and the yield is already amazing. Exceptional customer service! I highly recommend Yonder Hill Farm and plan to be a returning customer.
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 set aside for someone else but they never got them and even after two weeks kept in the fridge they ALL grew. I have asked many questions as well and always get an answer so that helps a lot too.
Thank you Yonder Hill Farm, you are much appreciated!!!!!
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 know seeds, they are all you’ll ever need for your gardens.
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 again.
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 first.
so kind and helpful!
Picked up our seeds for our first attempt at our garden! These folks are so kind and helpful! VERY knowledgable.
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 in stock, so I bought a set of seeds for everything they still had in stock. I had a roughly 85% germination rate, and some of the leafy greens (Mizuna and Butter Lettuce in particular) grew so fast and large that they out-competed the weeds and all I have had to do is water them as needed. I am providing around half of my family’s food from around 100 square feet of (mostly) containers and a raised bed. I am planning to purchase from Yonder Hill Farms in the future and have recommended them to all my friends, and would definitely recommend their seeds to anyone else in Atlantic Canada.
