We loan because...
We love tomatoes!
As fewer and fewer tomato varieties are grown commercially, it is nice to support small scale farmers in far flung corners of the globe who are more likely to grow heritage seeds.

About us
This is the team for anyone who yearns to plant tomato seeds early each spring and for those who merely enjoy consuming them. Ketchup lovers included!
