Northeastern Iowa is a great place for a weekend vacation. There is a lot to see that does not take a lot of time to enjoy. This is one of those places. The idea of seed savers I found intriguing. This is a great place to take kids--a fantastic learning experience. It's also a wonderful place for gardeners planning what... More

Seed Savers is a little bit off the beaten path but well worth the effort to go to. The gardens are just beautiful and a photographers delight!! ( My husband got to try out his brand new lens !) We really enjoyed out time in the little gift shop, tons of fabulous seeds to pick from and I especially loved... More

Seed Saver's is one of our family faves. The grounds are so pretty and covered with beautiful plants. Walk the paths to find fun wild life like little green toads. Don't forget to feed the chickens!

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
