Mich. Native Grass Seed

Download Our Catalog and Resource Guide

Our Michigan genotype grasses are produced locally and managed ecologically through fire and responsible harvesting.  We hand collected the source seed from remnant sites throughout southern Michigan and each species is source certified by the Michigan Crop Improvement Association.  Much of our grass seed was collected in partnership with the USFS from the Huron-Manistee National Forests.

We also have local collections of many other grasses, sedges, and wildflowers from southern Michigan.  We are working to make those commercially available in the near future.  Keep an eye out for more species in the years to come!

Our seed is tested by independent labs for purity and germination and is always sold by Pure Live Seed (PLS) percentage.
