This is the second year we have ordered from Baker Creek, and we were not disappointed. We ordered online on a Saturday afternoon and I am holding my seeds in my hand today, the following Thursday and Monday was a holiday! Super fast shipping.

My husband and I can't wait to start our new seeds for this year and see what our kids think of everything!

Great Job!!!!

The ordering process by phone was very pleasant. The sales person was polite… when I asked for her personal recommendations on tomato varieties, she was very informative and helpful. The delivery speed was also fast, even with the recent bad weather slowing down postal service in my area.

First time ordering from Baker Creek. Firstly, they have great customer service. I placed an order and forgot to print my confirmation number. I called their MO office and was pleasantly surprised to speak with real people who were fast and friendly. My order arrived after 8 days with some cool free seeds and a handwritten note apologizing for the shipping delay (I did not think there was a delay but I appreciated the note). Currently I have had great success with the seeds I have started. I am experiencing close to 100% germination on all greens, tomato, eggplant, onions, root veggies. So far my pepper seeds have not sprung but it has only been 6 days since I wet them so no worries for now. As far as the quality of the harvest only time will tell, but compared to other heirloom mail orders I have used these are off to a tremendous start. All of this coupled with 1 year money back guarantees on all seeds and a great color catalogue I can say I will be back next year. I actually am so excited that I convinced my local organic shop to carry a selection of Baker Creek seeds this year at the store! Highly recommended, great variety and selection that can not be found locally for most growers.

Amazing seed company! First, our orders have been shipped fast, 100% accurate and complete. ALL of the seeds I have purchased from Baker Creek have been extraordinary! We purchased seeds from 8 companies and kept notes on the productivity of each type from each company, each year. Baker Creek seeds won hands down. The germination rate was above average. Plant vitality was extaordinary! Couldn't kill our Baker Creek plants. (The same can't be said for some of the other big seed company's seeds we have planted, which passed on rather quickly in the season!) Productivity was beyond anything I have seen in 30 years of gardening. Most of the varieties from Baker Creek also had fantastic flavor. Each year we have discovered yet another treasure in a new variety. Our experience the last few years with their seeds has convinced us to plant only high quality heirloom variety. As a final thought, I HIGHLY reccomend their magazine, "Heirloom Gardener!" Each issue is not only a good read for any level of gardener, it is a wonderful resource and presents topics that even experienced gardeners will find useful. It is a marelous publication and my personal favorite magazine!

I received my order promptly with a note apologizing for any delays! I sent out numerous seed orders on the same day and Baker Creek was the first one to arrive. I've been buying Baker Creek seeds for years and have been very happy with germination rates and quality of product. If you like the Cherokee Purple tomato, try the Paul Robeson!

This is my first experience with Baker Creek, but it sure won't be my last. The service was prompt, accurate and had a friendly, neighborly feel. The catalog is the MOST BEAUTIFUL I have seen and I get quite a few! Can't wait for spring so I can plant my seeds. Keep it up Baker Creek!

This is the first time I have delt with this company and I am very impressed. This is the place to deal with if you are looking for a large selection of heirloom seeds especially tomatoes. I ordeded 16 varieties or tomatoes and peppers. I have not germinated any yet but the packages are clearly dated for this year. The prices were very reasonable and shipping was quick to Canada. I am very Impressed!

There is a speciality gardening store in my town that has just started selling their seeds and they have nothing but praise for this company. They have met the owner personally and is very impressed with his business.

This was my first year ordering from Baker Creek and I have been very happy so far. I placed a fairly large order and it was still received within only a few days. Everything was also exactly what I have ordered with no mistakes. It is still too early to plant here yet, so time will tell what the quality of the seeds are. My only complaint with this company is that they need to provide much more detailed information on the seed packets. Mostly what is provided is the same descriptions found in the catalog with spotty information about planting and dates to maturity. As a beginning gardener, I was forced to do much of my own research to determine how to grow the seeds from them.

I have ordered from baker creek in the last 2 years and received all my seed. They have lots of selection and a great detailed catalog they send me every year in January. I received this years order in 4 days even after all the sleet and snow down here. I will order from them next year,I recommend any serious gardener to support a company like this. Thanks, Tim from the Christmas tree farm in Nesbit MS

From their informative, entertaining, and concise seed catalog to their live customer service representatives answering questions without seemingly rushing through a question/answer segment; they are a company that I go to for nearly all of my gardening needs and desires~

I ordered a variety of vegtable seeds and had good germination rates with all of them. I'm excited about growing all heirlooms this year. I wish I had found you sooner.
I enjoy the quotes through out the catalog and the recepies are great. I would like to subscribe to your magazine with my next order.

Gotta love homegrown, independent companies. Baker Creek seeds are a first-rate act. Discovered them through a co-worker. I was impressed with the FAST turnaround. Website and catalogue have excellent information.

My wife and I look forward to planting the seeds this spring. Kids are freaked out by some of the items, but totally dig the outlandish colours and variety!!!

As a first-time customer I am very pleased with the fast and personable service! I placed two orders, a vegetable order and an additional order for herb seed. Both orders arrived four days after they were placed.

Baker Creek's catalog is top-notch. I love the incredible amount of variety they offer, there is something for every region.

While I do order from other seed companies as well, Baker Creek ranks very high on my list. I am very excited to recieve my first issue of their magazine very soon!

First time purchasing seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co. The shipping was very fast. Took less than a week to ship to Nashville, TN. I love the variety of heirlooms seeds that they offer. Unusual and interesting. The prices are reasonable and shipping is VERY reasonable to Tennessee. I also liked the fact that I received a free extra packet of seeds with my order. Thanks Baker Creek!

Service was quick. All seeds that I ordered were delivered, without any substitutes. Now that their website is up and running (smoothly) it would be nice to be able to put gift certificates in online, so I didn't have to mail it in to redeem it.

But the only thing that makes me is jealous! I think its great the business started as a hobby. Its awesome that Bakers Creek is getting popular...they deserve it!!!

I've ordered from Baker Creek for two years and I could not be happier. The seeds we received last season were amazing. Everything came up. We had veggies coming out our ears! The Cherokee Purple Tomatoes were to die for. I just received this years seeds -- they came so quickly after I sent the order, but it's still too early to plant! I've ordered a lot of seeds from a lot of companies, but Baker Creek is my favorite so far for customer service and quality -- love the beautiful catalog too!

Excellent seed company to deal with. I have visited their farm in Aug. when they have an open house featuring most of their garden produce but especially the tomatoes. It was eye opening to see tomatoes grown locally that weighted almost 3#. I have yet to get one of those. 2# yes.

What more can be said, I love this company. I placed two large orders this winter. One was delivered quickly, the other went missing. I kept hoping it would arrive any day, but it never did. About a month after placing the order I called to see what was up.

The ladies on the phone were more than nice and once I was transfered to the right person, she did everything in her power to find out what had happened to my order. It was not in the computer she informed me. She took my number and called me right back 10 minutes later. She apologized profusely and told me that somehow my order had fallen behind something , litterally, and she had dug it up. She was very warm and kind, a pleasure to deal with. She said they would ship my seeds priority mail that afternoon.

My seeds arrived in one day. Perfect experience, I could not be happier. Mistakes happen, but it takes a great company to fix them and make it all better.

I've ordered from Baker for years. I get everything I order with rare exception - once in a great while they are out of a seed I am looking for. This year's seeds were in my mailbox in less than a week from when I placed my order - everything there. I am happy with the quality of their seeds, and I often find rare seeds there that I haven't been able to find elsewhere.

I am very pleased with the seed order I placed with Baker Creek this year. I was pleased with the seeds I'd ordered last year, which grew marvellously despite the cooler-and-damper-than-usual season, so this year's order was substantially larger.

The seeds arrived within four days of order, with bonus packs and a note explaining about the seeds that were out of stock.

I then took the beautiful full color catalog with me to share with coworkers, and through an impromptu discussion, we've set up a group/community garden project for this year, featuring plants we remember from our individual childhoods -- should be interesting, to say the least, since we have several people from Asia, Africa and Mexico in the group. Talk about a way to learn to relate to one another! Who knew we had so many similar experiences with gardening while growing up, and so much in common generally? What a terrific way to foster diversity!

Thanks so much for the connectedness you've given us. We'll keep you posted.

I enjoy every page of the Baker Creek Seed book. I have ordered several years and enjoy the unique seed I find there. I always get good germination and ample crops from their seed. This year my order arrived in 5 days even though they said their orders were being delayed because of huge volumes of orders. I was pleasantly surprised to receive one of the seeds I considered ordering as a bonus!

I googled heirloom seed companys and picked Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co.
I found the seed packages I wanted and ordered them. At that time I was informed ahead of time that they were very busy and it would be a while. The seed packages arrived in great shape in my mail box sooner than I expected without any problems. They also sent a free package of seed. I am very satisfied.

Great Company! Fast shipping, reasonable prices, free gift, personal thank you note, unusual offerings! Have high expectations for the seeds. Hope to add another POSITIVE feedback after harvest. Give them a try. I used to live south of Ava, Mo in Wasola, raising feeder pigs. It's a hard area to make a living - good luck with your current enterprise. Currently reading Mansfield's Laura Ingals Wilder's The Long Winter. Hope you are having a milder one than KS.
