Default Amishland Heirloom Seeds - CLOSED (5-31-2020)

Just went to the Amishland Heirloom Seeds page, and there is a notice from the proprietor that she is closing up shop, no more seed sales.


https://www.amishlandseeds.com/


"All seeds sales on this website have ended as of May 31st."

Wow, I wish I would have known. I hope she did well with the pandemic selling out almost every seller.

I contacted her last fall asking about new varieties and when her website would be updated for the new season and she emailed back, saying that she wasn't that well and that she had lost the friend who did a lot of her seed production, so as a result she was no longer going to be able to sell seeds.

That's really too bad. In this difficult economic time, I may set aside a portion of my budget this summer to support small niche seed sellers.

Knowing how she has been working on this seed project with so many fake variety names, better to say someting like R.I.P. Amishland. But I'm not happy too, because I'm supporting any seedsaver.
And also after so many feedbacks (from me too) about real names Lisa the owner changed them quite well several years ago...

And I don’t believe a hint of anything remotely Amish
