Urban Farmer began in 2008 with just 10 varieties of vegetable seeds. An avid gardener and magazine reader, founder Noah Herron needed something to do with a closet full of magazines. After a few hours of cutting, Noah realized he could use his old magazines to store his vegetable seeds. After a couple months and a large surplus of seeds, Noah began offering his recycled seed packets and vegetable seeds online. The combination of eco-friendly seed packets and high quality seeds quickly took off and Noah’s two favorite hobbies, gardening and magazines, became a practical business pursuit.

Burpee Seed Company

The Burpee Seed Company was founded in Philadelphia in 1876 by an 18 year-old with a passion for plants and animals and a mother willing to lend him $1000 dollars of “seed money” to get started in business.

Here’s one of the first seed catalogs I fell in love with:
A few years ago Gurney’s was sold to a much larger direct mail oriented company, Foster and Gallagher. A Little while after, Foster and Gallagher declared bankruptcy, unfortunately putting thousands of people out of work, and leaving tens of thousands of loyal Gurney’s customers with no place to turn. A group of lifelong mail order gardeners bought Gurney’s at a bankruptcy hearing a few months later, and, with your help, we’ll restore it to the glory days of old.
