Love this place! The various activities they hold throughout the year are really superb and we love visiting in the spring to buy our garden plants. Some of them don't always come up though so I will warn people of that!

I've wanted to visit Seed Savers for years! and I finally did! We went on July 5th and it was a relatively quiet day at the farm - we had a nice walk around, spent a few dollars at the gift shop, and ate the picnic lunch that we brought. I recommend a picnic at Seed Savers!

If you're in Decorah, don't miss this! The gardens are lovely, the White Park ancient cattle are wonderful, the trails are beautiful, and the opportunity to buy really unusual seeds is terrific. This is a great non-profit and I really enjoy spending time there and supporting them with my purchases.

This place is worth a stop when you're in the Decorah area. It's a wonderful place to learn about the art and science of seed saving, a practice not well known to many of us city dwellers. Walk through the vegetable and flower gardens to see plant varieties you've not seen before. Visit the heirloom chicken and geese and feed... More

On a rainy morning we almost skipped this stop on our rv trip. This was a favorite, interesting story, essential seeds saved, direct link to Norway, a lovely garden and tremendous store. We walked the grounds, photographed everything we could to show our friends and shopped at the store for seeds and souvenirs. We now receive their catalog and only... More

We loved our visit to the Heritage Farm more than a year ago: my husband took lots of great photos of the flowering plants (we were there in the last week of June), the meadow and farmyard buildings, while I went a little crazy in the shop. Brought home heritage seeds for tomatoes, squash, and beans, all of which did... More

If, like me, you're horrified by the way our nation's family farms have been hijacked by the likes of Monsanto and factory farm cartels, a visit to Seed Savers Exchange Heritage Farm will renew your spirit. I'd joined Seed Savers as a member earlier this year, when a friend who knew about Decorah told me about their mission. I'd already... More

One of a kind attraction in Northeast Iowa. Their mission is to save strains of plants from becoming lost. Their technicians are extremely knowledgeable about all kinds of growing plants. I enjoy listening to them share.

If heritage seeds, organics, and books about same are your passion, then the Seed Savers Exchange is for you. The exchange is in a fabulous timber frame building and the grounds are beautiful.
