We Grow the Seeds.
We Make the Pots.
We Write the Scrolls.
From our Lineage to yours. These seeds, in these clay pots, are to be grown, passed, or simply displayed in your home until the day you are ready. We imagine a Home Seed Bank in all our homes again. Seeds, especially grains, can be viable for decades. There's a reason all of our ancestors around the world stored these organic micro- chips of data in ceramic pots for the future.

Ancient Wisdom Contained in a Contemporary Artifact
Lineage Seeds seed pots are made from, New Mexican clay, some of which we dig our selves and some with mica. After being cleaned, the clay is thrown on a wheel and seed pots are formed. The newly made seed pots are then wood fired in a pit atop cottonwood bark and aspen shavings and other organic materials from around the farm. Once cool and clean, the seed pots are filled with organically grown seeds and a hand-written scroll detailing the variety name and history of growers before you. All seeds are organically grown by Lineage Seeds founder, Jared Hagood, or a farmer within our lineage.
Stored at room temperature, the seed can maintain viability anywhere from 3 years to several hundred years. Archeologists have found seed pots in caves and tombs across the world. There is a good reason every culture, on every continent stored seeds in ceramics. They keep the mice and bugs out as well as wicking any moisture and maintaining a consistent temperature.
