I have been working very hard to bring you guys a new seed vendor partner for the MSB. We have some great ones but here is what I was looking for.
~ First – I felt we needed at least one provider that does large bulk orders for your guys engaged in market gardening, full on vegetable farming, lager permaculture projects and urban farming initiatives.
~ Second – I wanted a company that guaranteed NO GMO, but that was not enough, I wanted a company that had the stones to take “The Safe Seed Pledge” assuring us that they stood for Non GMO and were committed to it, not just using it as a marketing buzz phrase.
~ Third – The pricing breaks had to be solid on larger orders of say a quarter of a pound to several pounds or more. A discount is great but if you are discounting something highly over priced it doesn’t really matter.
~ Fourth – Service, shipping and inventory had to all be exceptional. I didn’t want a company with two varieties of tomatoes for a company that took four weeks to ship your order or one that didn’t answer inquiries.
Well in those four areas NE Seed got four solid, A+ grades! Many of you came to my fall event and saw me mixing large mixes of vegetable seeds, many of those seeds came from NE. Many of the seeds we spread this summer on the work with Jack weekends also came from NE Seed. High quality, good selection, good pricing and NO GMOS, check, check, check and check.
The final requirement, a REAL discount, not something tiny like 2% or even 5%. I wanted someone who understood the value of being in our MSB and would earn your business. So how is 10%, good? Sure, but how about 15%, better? I mean that would be good, but no dice guys, what I got for you was 20%.
Yep NE Seed now offers all MSB members 20% off order using the MSB discount at checkout. Founded in 1987, the goal of NE Seed is to offer a line of high quality seeds and provide them at a reasonable price to everyone. Conventional, Organic, Heirloom and Hybrid varieties are available.
NE Seed has provided farmers and home gardeners with the seed varieties they need at the farm and at the table. Through a partnership with DP Seeds, a traditional breeder for America’s farms, NE Seed is able to offer those same varieties to home growers. Take advantage of the benefits of hybrid seeds such as improved disease resistance, increased uniformity and higher yields.
The discount code for NE Seed has already been added to your members area. Just log in and you will find it on the benefits page.
This is another example of my efforts to expand the diversity of the MSB. If you have a high quality company and would be interested in discussing a discount for the MSB please let me know and we can see if we can reach an agreement.
The truth though is I am open to anything high quality that I feel my audience would benefit from and appreciate. Just email me at jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com with TSPC discount partner in the subject line and tell me a bit about your offering.
If you have been on the fence about MSB this is just another example of the high quality discounts I work to negotiate for members.
