Call in to speak with the host
The Renegade Farmer is proud to present our interview with farm entrepreneur visionary Jere Gettle, of Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. Jere Gettle always had a passion for growing things, and at age 3, he planted his first garden. Ever since that day, he wanted to be involved in the seed industry. So at the age of 17, he printed the first small Baker Creek Heirloom Seed catalog in 1998. The company has grown to offer 1,400 varieties of vegetables, flowers and herbs—the largest selection of heirloom varieties in the U.S.A.
Baker Creek carries one of the largest selections of seeds from the 19th century, including many Asian and European varieties. The company has become a tool to promote and preserve our agricultural and culinary heritage. Our company and seeds have been featured in The New York Times, The Associated Press, Oprah Magazine, Martha Stewart, and many others. Gardeners can request a free 128-page color catalog that now mails to over 250,000 gardeners nationally.
Please join us as he discusses his love of gardening, his business, his work in other countries, and against GMOs! Don't miss this great interview!
It's good to talk.
