Bucktown Seed Company is proud to be a NON-GMO seed supplier.
Just as we have been "fearfully and wonderfully made", we believe that every seed and fruit has been given a purpose. An intersection of art, mystery and provision converge on every fruit that is picked from our home gardens. We do not believe that an organism should be modified at the DNA level in a lab to achieve "desirable" traits.
Non-GMO Safe Seed Pledge
"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, sell, or trade 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 are 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."
