I got the same number of items as I ordered, and they came in a reasonable time frame.

I ordered Odawa Beans. I did not get the correct beans. The packets I got were labeled Odawa, but contained Jacob's Cattle. The company claims to sell both. Either they were mispacked or mislabeled, or they don't actually sell both and are passing off the cheaper and easier to find Jacob's Cattle as Odawa.

I ordered Nanticoke squash. They did not grow at all. Out of two packets I attempted to plant, all seed was dead and not a single one sprouted. Baker Creek and Experimental Farm Network squashes planted right next to them all sprouted and grew fantastically. The Nanticoke this company sent me was apparently old seed or was never viable.

I have a couple more varieties from them that I put in my drawer to be planted next year. I don't have high hopes for them, though.

Would not buy from them again. From these reviews, it appears I was lucky to get as much as I did.

On August 11, 2011 I placed an order for onions and paid via PayPal. I expected to receive my order sometime this past winter (November/December is optimal planting time in my zone) and have never received it. I sent them an email on 1/24/12 and again in March, as well as tried to phone far all I have is "crickets"...and a hole in my pocket for $41.80! way to run a business..they could've had my business every year and now they'll lose mine and others if my review is heeded...STAY AWAY FROM THIS 'SUPPLIER' !!!...wish I'd known about Dave's Garden before I had ordered!

On April 5th, 2012, coopdvillefarms changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following: it is 5 days later and the onions I ordered last August (for fall delivery) have magically appeared on my doorstep (most likely because of the email generated from this posting). It's too late to get any bulbs out of those 150 plants but I'll at least have some scallions. I'm changing my rating to neutral because it appears that this vendor isn't dishonest or out of business but just not a good communicator or skilled in organizing the business/orders! (unfortunately many farmers don't have business skills or the time to implement them). So, I'm giving Rich's a 'Neutral' rating because they came through and integrity...following through with what was contracted... is more important to me than the onions themselves! I don't know if I'll order from them again but I wish them the best and hope they can come up with a better way to handle their orders!

wish I would have checked out this company with you before paying. They took my money quickly, still waiting for my horseradish.

On November 20th, 2011, vac2die4 changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:

received my horseradish on November 18. they never got back to my requests for more information prior to the delivery. their communication is poor but they did ship me the product so I changed my rating to "neutral."

I ordered three each of two varieties of pepper plants in mid-May 2010. It was planting season. The plants were ordered from the current catalog and I would have expected immediate fulfillment. I heard nothing from the company. One week later I emailed the company's shipping department regarding the order, asking for a refund if immediate shipment was not possible. I had no response from this email. One week later I initiated a dispute through PayPal, requesting a full refund. A few days later I received a message from PayPal acknowledging a resolution and a refund of my payment. I never directly heard from Rich from the time that the order was placed until the refund was made.

I placed an order on April 17, 2009 for several varieties of tomatoes and later (after a couple tries) added a pepper plant to the order. I was charged immediately. Haven't heard anything from them in terms of shipping even after sending them an email a week ago. I sent them another message today asking again. After reading these reviews, I changed my mind and requested cancellation via email. I even tried calling, but the number isn't working. Their customer service is non-existent.

On May 17th, 2009, wulfpak changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:

Within a couple days of requesting cancellation and a refund, my account was credited. While I appreciated that, there was still no correspondence from the company whatsovever. I changed my rating to neutral.

I spoke with the Indiana Attorney General's Office. I was advised that due to the nation wide complaints and alleged fraud and theft, alleged victims need to file a complaint. The above address is where you can complete the complaint form. The form is a PDF file and very simple to complete. I will be filing a complaint and I urge all who feel that they have been defrauded to file a complaint. Due to the "across state lines" situation the AG office said that they will investigate every complaint to its fullest. Good luck to all and if you have any problems or I can do any more for you please feel free to call or e-mail. The AG consumer protection # 800-382-5516 ask for Susan.

In the spring of 2005 I decided to purchase seeds from this company to attempt some landscaping at our new home. I wish I had seen this profile about Rich Farm Garden. I was excited that it was a local company. (less than an hour drive away) Even though I live in Indiana, the same state in which this company is located, it took over 5 weeks to receive the seeds I ordered. After numerous phone calls and emails, I did finally receive seed. A few were what I had ordered and the rest were substitutes, even though I had expressly stated that I did not want substitutes. Would I order from them again? Absolutely not. I just ordered seed from two other companies and received them within a week and they were both located out west, not even in the same state of Indiana. If you plan to order from them, then at least expect some delay and make sure you give yourself enough time for growing before transplanting.

I ordered in Dec, 2006.... I received the seeds today, May 26, 2007. They were supposed to arrive in February....... I would order from them again because they have seeds I can't find elsewhere, and they did send my order. Just later than I wanted it.
