A Kansas Seed Company

I just learned about this Kansas seed company yesterday, so I thought I ought to share the information!

Skyfire Garden Seeds is a small, Kansan-owned seed company, based out of Kanopolis, that sells heirloom seeds. Not all of the seeds are grown by the owner, but she does trial and save seeds from a number of vegetables. This intrigues me, because heirlooms are notoriously difficult here in Kansas, so having someone trial them and save the seeds of the best performing plants sounds like a great way to get some better production out of some of the heirlooms.

The only other Kansan-owned seed company that I know of is Seeds from Italy, which is a distributor for the Italian Franchi seeds.

Do you know of any other Kansan-owned vegetable seed companies that I’m missing out on?

UPDATE:

Here’s another one that I wasn’t familiar with: El Dorado Heirloom Seeds.
