Non GMO Cotton Seeds Mixed Arkansas Green Red Foliated White Erlene's Green Cross Pollinated Natural Heirloom Cotton Seed Plants (Gossypium hirsutum)
Feel good knowing you are getting non GMO seeds grown in a natural environment free from chemicals & synthetic fertilizers. We intermingle all our herbs creating a messy but beautifully interesting landscape. We believe this attracts a larger variety of bugs, helping to keep any one species from overtaking. NO! sprays or treatments, even the organic approved types. We work with Mother Nature, not against her...
We do not support GMO's
We are proud to be the first business in WV to sign the Safe Seed Pledge.
Two years in a row we grew four kinds of cotton from certified organic seed: Arkansas Green, Nankeen, Red Foliated White & Erlene's Green from organic seeds. Cotton can cross pollinate. The seed we are selling has likely cross pollinated so we cannot tell you what type of cotton you will grow, but we expect it should add some excitement to your garden! If you spin, you will welcome having your very own chemical free cotton. Everyone should try growing cotton at least once, it is a memorable experience rich in American history.
We do not have professional machines to separate the plant matter from the seed. Therefore dried plant matter is mixed with the seeds.
There is no better way to make your stand against GMO's (Genetically Modified Organisms) than to grow your own heirloom veggies by saving the seeds & passing them on. Don't let Monsanto take over our food!
"Conventional cotton is considered the world's 'dirtiest' crop due to its heavy use of insecticides, the most hazardous pesticide to human and animal health. Conventional cotton covers 2.5% of the world's cultivated land yet uses 16% of the world's insecticides, more than any other single major crop.
Aldicarb, parathion, and methamidopho, three of the most acutely hazardous insecticides to human health as determined by the World Health Organization, rank in the top ten most commonly used in cotton production.
All but one of the remaining seven most commonly used are classified as moderately to highly hazardous.Aldicarb, conventional cotton's second best selling insecticide and most acutely poisonous to humans, can kill a man with just one drop absorbed through the skin, yet it is still used in 25 countries and the US, where 16 states have reported it in their groundwater." - Organic Trade Association
Cotton is grown on our Eco-farm. We are not cotton re-sellers.
