Welcome to Mewaldt Organics! Thanks so much for your support!!!
From Bill and Korena Mewaldt
Sustainable agriculture development is arguably one of the most important endeavors of mankind today. To that end, we have devoted much of our energy to production of wholesome food and teaching others, through example, how and why sustainable or organic farming methods work. Bill has a PhD in biology and Korena is a Master Gardener. Together we match theory with practical knowledge to offer what we believe is the only sensible way to grow food. Working with nature is always easier and more productive than fighting it. We challenge all sorts of food crops to our local environment and save the seeds of the successful ones to act as parents of the next generation.
Over the past 25 years we have tested hundreds of varieties of food crops, herbs and flowers for their ability to withstand our harsh, high-desert climate conditions. We save seeds of those which show promise and hopefully improve them by selection for favorable traits. We were already saving seeds as an integral part of our organic farming operation, so saving extra seeds to sell was an easy adjustment. You now can get the benefit of our testing and selection.
Saving seeds is an important part of maintaining a sustainable garden or farm. Once you find open-pollinated varieties that do well in your garden or farm, you are wise to save seeds from the best examples. Over the years, you will generally find improvements in such things as flavor, disease resistance, vigor and productivity, among many others. For more information on seed saving, see our store link.
Retail Outlets: A selection of our seeds is usually available for sale at the Flower Tree Nursery in Fallon and at the Great Basin Community Food Co-Op in Reno.
Produce Outlets: We market most of our produce through the Great Basin Community Food Co-op in Reno and several upscale restaurants in the Reno.
