About Seeds By Faith

Our family homesteads a modest hobby farm in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. Living in the Ozark Mountains is at its best...a gift from God; at its worst....hot and back breaking work, but even then, God's promises are true and our labor is blessed with rewards beyond our imagination. We take one day at a time learning and striving to be "self sufficient" while depending heavily on our good Lord above for strength and wisdom. From our farm, we offer open-pollinated, heirloom, non-GMO (genetically modified organism) seed from around the world that is grown, organically, in our garden and harvested with our own bare hands. Seed is available at www.seedsbyfaith.com.
