Snake River Seed Cooperative is a collective of family farmers in the Intermountain West who work together to produce a wide diversity of regionally-adapted seeds.
Regional Planting Guides
Planting environments in the Intermountain West vary greatly including Arid High Desert, Urban, and High Mountain regions. We’ve partnered with seed growers from some of these areas to provide you with a greater range of planting guides, covering Zones 3b-7a!
Hearty thanks to Affinity Farm in Moscow, ID and Titbout’s Seeds in Missoula, MT for collaborating with us!

How to Plant Flowers in the Winter
To cold-stratify your seeds indoors you can use simple items you may have at home! We show you how to start seeds using a zip seal bag, paper towel, or directly outside in trays. We also show you how to transplant sprouted seeds!
You can find our seeds at a multitude of locations around the Intermountain West.
