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

These folks just do it right~The way we all like to be treated. The way we hope to treat others.

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~

Picked up immediately when I called and answered my questions. Ordering was easy, prices were fair, and they did not gouge on shipping. All items arrived in great condition in just three days. Will definitely use again - assuming seeds germinate. We'll know in a few months!

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! A++++!

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.

I have been ordering from Bakers Creek since 2007. They ROCK! The selection is awesome, and service is always willing to help. I was told they are going though "growing pains" this year. 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.

I ordered from Baker Creek Seeds for the first time, this year. I consider them as one of the best I have ever ordered from! So far, I have ordered 3 different orders from them. I have gotten my orders fast, and have had free seeds enclosed with each order. Their customer service department is the best! I am so happy to have found this small, top rate company!

I just received my order and was so pleased! I ordered less than a week ago and already have everything, along with a free pack of tomato seeds. The seed packets are beautiful and my shipping receipt acutally had a persons name on it and the date they checked it. Nice to see that there are still companies that pay attention to detail. Just sad I already ordered part of my seeds before I found this company.

The catalog is thick and colorful and I think I have already read it cover to cover 5 or 6 times. It is worth just getting one, I can't imagine not wanting to order seeds after seeing the catalog. I am just thrilled to find a company like this, and can't wait to see how the seeds do. We are now talking about taking a trip out to Bakersville this summer.

First time to order here. Since my husband, daughter, and I plant and care for the historic kitchen gardens at GWC National Monument in Diamond, MO, we need seed varieties that would have been planted and grown about Civil War era. All seeds must be OP so we can show what was grown and how seeds were saved year to year by farmers. I appreciate the information on the seeds making it easier to get the correct era and the ease of all OP seeds.
Online ordering gave me fits (may have been the computer user), but did get it in and received the order within a week.
First order was for home garden and early garden at park. Second order will be only for park, so we'll see how well things go when they get even busier:)
Our personal garden is one acre, all OP, that we'll be increasing in size this year. It is a teaching/saving seed/eating/preserving garden.

I've ordered from this company for a few years and have never had a problem before- until now.

My second order of the year was close to $50.00. It was very slow to ship, but finally arrived. A few days later, a duplicate order appeared. I am honest so I emailed them about the double order. They told me to send the seeds back and I could have a credit for the shipping on my next order.

Okay, I was fine with that. I sent in a new order with a note about my credit and previous problem. I quickly got my new order, though with no free seed packet, which was a first. Also, my debit card was charged for the full order price. No credit was issued or refunded.

I also started my tomato plants that weekend and found that my cream sausage tomato packet was EMPTY! No seeds! I again emailed them last Monday and again Friday about the missing seeds and lack of credit issued. NO RESPONSE. Looks like their customer service has evaporated and they are ignoring my emails. I've spent close to $100 dollars on seeds and products from this company this year. Never Again!

On March 24th, 2009, hlebear changed the rating from negative to positive and added the following:

I have now received my refund and replacement seeds. So, I am adjusting my rating.
On February 2nd, 2010, hlebear added the following:

Placed an order again and received prompt service. I even got 3 packets of free seed, which was nice. I also subscribed to their Heirloom Gardner Magazine which is excellent. They also have back issues available.

We love this company! We have enjoyed their magazine The Heirloom Gardener for several years and have ordered seed from them a number of times. Our order has always been filled in a timely fashion and the seeds germinate and grow beautifully. It is especially nice to be able to find seeds that do well here in our alternately humid or drought plagued summers. Great people, great seeds, great gardening! Many thanks...
