Celebrate Purple Sage Farms with this collection of seeds they have stewarded on their farm!
Eaters everywhere are connecting with farmers through purchasing locally-grown food from farmer's markets. At SRSC, we want to extend that same important connection to the seeds which grow our food! Our main mission is to engage Intermountain West farmers to grow and adapt seeds for our bioregion.
Thank you for showing our growers you care about locally-grown seeds! Click here to view a full list of our growers.
Tim Sommer and his wife, Tamara Sloviaczek, founded Purple Sage Farms in 1989 where they cultivated a family, enriched the community, and became vital and respected leaders in the organic foods industry. For over 30 years, Purple Sage Farms has specialized in growing a wide range of organic herbs, edible flowers, greens, and vegetables. Today, the Sommer family grows over 250 varieties of crops ranging from the familiar and traditional to the obscure and exotic, whether they are culinary, medicinal or both. Purple Sage Farms herbs, spices, greens, flowers, and vegetables are thoughtfully grown and proudly certified organic on their family farm in Middleton, Idaho. At Purple Sage Farms, their mission is to connect our community to the healthiest, freshest, and most flavorful food.
Purple Sage Farms is an award-winning family farm, recognized for persistent and long-term advocacy for Idaho’s locally and organically grown food system. Purple Sage Farms became one of the first to be certified organic in Idaho. They are dedicated to contributing seed to Snake River Seed Cooperative because they believe that a huge part of being sustainable is being self-reliant by growing your own seed, or growing seed for your local community, which keeps genes and dollars where they can do the most good.

*At Snake River Seed Cooperative, we source our seeds from over 50 farmers within the Intermountain West. Occasionally, we have varieties that go out of stock. If a variety from this collection is out of stock and the collection is ordered before we are able to update the product list, we will substitute a different, but similar packet in the collection.
