“Beautiful farm and very educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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. There are also a lot of books and gardening tools available. Plan to spend a couple of hours in order to enjoy this are to its fullest!

“Seed Savers Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

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 also purchased some jellies and seeds for next season. They have gardening accessories and gifts for purchase. Brewed coffee is there with a request for a donation for the beverage. The grounds are lovely. They have flower gardens to enjoy. Their employees are very pleasant and enthusiastic. We walked a little way down their lovely walking trail. Wish we had time to go further.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Stopped by on a rainy cool day but warmly greeted by all the many workers...planting spring seedlings, cleaning up the garden area for the summer growing season.
would like to go back when they have events...looks like a lot of family fun! "Cool cows! "

“Great Escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Rainy Day in Early Spring”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

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 draining a pond and will restock brook trout. We saw lots of wildflowers and birds. The trees are just starting to leaf out so it's easy to see the birds in the trees.

There is an interesting cildren's play area made of woven willow branches.
