We visited last summer during the Heirloom Tomato festival and I was very impressed by the beauty of the gardens and grounds. The gift shop is filled with things you'll want to buy, including a great selection of seeds, dried beans for cooking, books, and clothing items. We took a hayride that was being offered that day to the pasture... More

Enjoyed the lovely fall garden, and got some 2014 seeds on sale. Great prep for next spring. Got Christmas beans as gifts for pals and will return to hike the trails. A very pleasant show room.

We have been ordering seeds from Seed Savers Exchange for years and were happy to finally visit. The farm is so pretty, set in a verdant, quiet valley. The shop has lots of nice gift items, and of course, seeds! The woman manning the shop was friendly and informative. We were the last visitors of the day. The sun was... More

On the way to Decorah we stopped at Seed Savers to see the gift shop and gardens. They also have lovely walking paths. I would go again.

And frankly, that should be anyone who eats. Just a few miles outside of charming Decorah, IA, Seed Savers Exchange is a non-profit organization that is focused on preserving and disseminating heirloom varieties of plants--fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, etc. Seed-saving as an activity was commonplace many years ago; however, it seems to be a lost skill. Visiting Seed Savers is... More

We stopped by the amazing farm after reading about them in a local article. The grounds are spectacular! There were a lot of trails and so green and lush. We spent a lot of time walking and never got tired of the scenery! The shop has an amazing amount of seeds available for purchase and the staff was very helpful.... More

My husband being a gardener, we wanted to make sure we took in the Seed Savers Exchange on our trip to Decorah. It was June and end of season. They had plenty of plants available for purchase. And they were half price. We took home a couple of heirloom plants and are enjoying watching their progress in our garden. We... More

Really enjoyed visiting here on a great spring day. I picked up some plants and seeds that are unique. We also strolled along one of the trails. There happened to be a speaker the day of our visit so we enjoyed listening to him as well.

SeedSavers is a smallish garden center with LOTS of seeds, some small plants and small trees for sale. My husband shops here every spring & this was my first visit. There are gardening tools, books, accessories (baskets, markers, gloves, etc.). We took a walk along the river after shopping. They are working with Iowa DNR to naturalize the river after... More
