The Seed Growers Podcast

Jun 15, 2022

Frank is a renown seed grower and sells seed both on contract and retail through their seed catalogue and website, Wild Garden Seed. You can also follow them on Instagram. The conversation ran long, so we broke it up into two parts. Part one, Frank talks about his farming career, how he scaled up his operation through a number of sites over the years to growing 15 acres of seed, and now only grows on a hectare and is more profitable than ever, the differences between wholesale and retail and why everyone should have a retail outlet, and his evolving crop mix from primarily greens, to fruiting crops, to flowers. Part two comes out Friday and is all about lettuce seed production. You don't want to miss it.
