One of the goals we have at Promise Land Pastures is to be constantly working to use more sustainable practices. One such practice is the use of purebred heirloom seeds and breeds that reproduce true each generation. This gives us the ability to refine our plants and animals with each successive generation. With this approach, we are able to utilize the abundance of seeds that our plants produce for increased plantings in the subsequent years, and we can be less dependent on outside suppliers of seed. It also means that as we select the best specimens to save the seeds from our seed stock gets better and better each year, and they are more adapted to our specific location.There is special knowledge and skills required for successfully keeping seed stock pure and storing for future use. We are striving to acquire that knowledge and skill, and to be able to pass it on to our community.
