  Company Comment, posted on October 11, 2002:  
Harmony Farm Supply was founded in 1980 by Kate Burroughs and David Henry, originally as a supplier of organic fertilizers, ecological pest controls and IPM monitoring tools. We added irrigation system components in 1982, moved to a warehouse in 1983 and to our current space in 1990.

We believe that people want to eat food grown without the use of poisons and toxic chemicals. Further, we believe that food, flowers, ornamentals, and lawns can be grown organically without the use of toxic materials and have been helping people do just that for over 20 years. Whether you are a farmer or a gardener, we are here to answer your questions on how to grow plants organically, and to help you be successful.

You can request a free copy of our catalog at or call (707) 823-9125. You can also visit our web site for information on our products and purchasing through our secure online catalog. As you look through our catalog, you will note we do not sell any synthetically compounded pesticides or fertilizers. With a very few exceptions, which we have tried to note, we do not sell materials which do not meet the California Organic Foods Act or the National Organic Program. We make every effort to stock materials which are approved for use by organic farmers by the Organic Materials Review Institute. We participate in the Safe Seed Pledge and assure you that we will not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered plants or seeds.

We believe that efficient use of water is very important and strive to provide proper design for drip and sprinkler irrigation systems. We are committed to selling quality products and backing them up with service. We have found in the long run it makes no sense to use a lower priced but poorly made tool or piece of equipment that quickly breaks and needs replacement. We have selected materials which meet our high standard of excellence for doing the job right. If you are not pleased with anything you purchase from us, we would appreciate your feedback and the opportunity to make it right.

We have found our best advertising to be the word-of-mouth from satisfied customers. In this age of warehouse shopping where you are lucky to get someone to take your money, much less help you, we are dedicated to providing individualized service by trained staff.

If you are in the area, please stop by and visit us. We are open every day (except major holidays), Monday through Friday, 8 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. (winter hours).

If we can be of service, please let us know. We are here to help.

I placed an order online for a total of $48.49. The estimated shipping charges were ZERO, but there was a line stating it was an estimate and I would receive a phone call or email for special circumstances. Now, I realize shipping a ten pound bag of Sluggo will cost more than nothing, but the reason I ordered from this company instead of another one was I figured if the shipping was more than what was estimated, I would get a call or an email before they proceeded, and I would be able to make a final decision before they charged my card. Imagine my surprise when my card was debited for $65.50! There is a big difference to me between $0 and $17! When I discovered this, I phoned the company to see if they could just cancel my order. The first person I spoke to said she would check into finding out who put my order through without email authorization from me about the shipping charges, and she would call me back. After waiting 3 hours, I called again, and the next person told me that they are also running a store and she probably hadn't gotten around to it yet. I asked to pass on the message that I was calling again with regards to my order and I expected a return call. Needless to say, I haven't received that return phone call yet. I arrived home to find the package on my doorstep. I will say in their behalf, that the order processing is fairly swift. Yet, now I have the package and am out $17 for shipping because it is obviously too late to cancel my order, and my hostas are screaming for slug protection so I won't be returning it. I will not, however, be purchasing anything from this company again. I expect honesty from companies I give my money to, and I don't consider shipping in the dark a very respectable practice.
On June 10th, 2008, trioadastra changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:

Okay, I did get a call back today, and it seems my order just happened to be the one the website screwed up on.... They did offer to refund me the shipping charges, and were very polite and apologetic. I understand the technical glitches that happen with online ordering, I just hate it when I;m on the receiving end! Given the fact that they were great about resolving the issue, I'm changing my rating, but if I order from them in the future, it will be by phone.

Alas, I now live three thousand miles away. How I miss shopping at this great nursery. Only place I've ever found which sells six-packs of perennials--what a great idea. Good little plants, well started, perfectly suited for those of us who want to stuff in every plant we can! They have a great selection of plants, including trees and shrubs, and the staff is knowledgeable and interested in talking with you.

It is a real treat to walk into their store, as well as pick up one of their very informative catalogues. No one is too busy to talk to you about a plant or product, and they have the most charming little "bookstore" in there now. Any questions cn be answered by telephone too; so if you are looking for service, you have come to the right place.
