We work directly with your local agencies to customize your seed mixes for CRP programs. We will work for you to make the process much easier to understand. With over 30 years experience in speaking “Government program language“ let us help simplify the process.
We spend a lot of time and carefully source our native seed species from areas that are closest to our ecoregion. We spend time every fall to go inspect the production fields we source our native seed from to insure they are clean and free from noxious weed seed. That is something the big companies just can’t do. All of the native seed we source comes from the upper midwest as an added layer to insure quality and ecological compatibility.
We hope to expand that in the future to produce local genotype seed from right here in the North Central Indiana and East Central Illinois.
All our native seed is sold by the Pure Live Seed Pound.
In addition to maintenance and management services, we’re proud to offer CRP and NRCS approved seed mixtures. These seed mixtures were specifically designed with water and soil conservation in mind.
Native plants play a critical role in creating a balanced ecosystem and by planting them on your land you’re helping the local environment thrive. These plants aid in climate control, regulate pest populations and improve soil conditions.
The benefits to both people and wildlife are great and varied. The concept of creating your own space may appeal to a variety of landowners: a beekeeper, a bird watchers, a nature photographer, or maybe someone who is just tired of mowing those extra acres. Below are some of our favorite reasons to plant native.
Since the 1950s, the USDA’s Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) has led agricultural conservation efforts and helped improve the health and quality of key environmentally sensitive agricultural lands.
By removing critical lands from agricultural production and focusing on conservation practices, those enrolled in CRP have significantly improved water quality and protected valuable forests and wetlands while preventing soil erosion and reducing native wildlife habitat loss.
There are a number of government programs specifically designed to address a large number of farming and ranching related conservation issues including
