SAFE SEED PLEDGE
Our Pledge to You: "Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative.
We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.
The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities."
This document was developed by the Council for Responsible Genetics. It represents, in general, the option of many ethical seed companies as they respond to farmers' and gardeners' very real concerns.

PESTICIDES & NEONICOTINOIDWhen we state our products are ‘chemical free’ we mean it and this includes Neonicotinoids. What is that, you ask? Neonicotinoids are systemic pesticides that will kill the very pollinators you’re trying to attract to your wildlife garden!
This systemic pesticide is absorbed into all parts of the plant: leaves, flowers, pollen, and nectar which means that any catepillar feeding on that plant, any butterfly sipping nectar, or any native bee collecting pollen are often killed simply by visiting plants treated with neonicotinoids.
Neonicotinoids affect the central nervous system of insects resulting in paralysis and death, which is surely not the goal if you are trying to attract them, assist them by planting wildflower seeds or perennial plants! Rest assured, we value the creation around us and all of the pollinators and wildlife that your gardens may bring. Our flower seeds and plant products are free of all detrimental pesticides so you can be confident you are planting GMO-FREE, Open-Pollinated and Chemical free seeds and plants when you buy from us! We strongly suggest that you do not use pesticides in the preparation or maintenance of your gardens. Ask us for alternatives. For more information see below:
All Wildflower Seed Products – No Pesticides or Chemicals Used in Any of the Production Fields nor are seeds ever treated with any type of chemical
Plant Plugs and Bare Roots – No Pesticides Used in Production Fields nor are any of our Plant Products Treated with Chemicals After Harvest
Flower Bulbs – No Pesticides Used On Bulbs
Grasses – Our Supplier of Grasses Uses an Integrated Pest Management Approach and is well aware of the damage Pesticides/Neonicotinoids can do. There is a very limited use on some grass species production fields of which is presently being phased out. We don’t sell those particular species of grasses here at the farm.
Veggies & Herbs - No Pesticides or Chemicals Used in Any of the Production Fields nor are seeds ever treated with any type of chemical
NOTE: Current research from the Scientific Beekeeping points to several possible contributing factors for Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) including: pesticides (particulary those of the neonicotinoid class), infections with mites, malnutrition, various pathogens, genetic factors, immunodeficiency, loss of habitat, stress of cross country shipment of beehives, winter loss due to cold, changing beekeeping practices, and /or a combination of factors. We encourage you to read articles at scientificbeekeeping.com for a balanced review of these issues. It may be that chemicals are responsible and it may turn out they are not. In any case, we believe natural is better and we want to keep our bees and other pollinators healthy so here at the Vermont Wildflower Farm we will keep doing everything possible to insure our products are chemical free.
