FAQs

Our web site has full details on how to germinate your seeds or care for your plants. Please visit www.thefreemanfamilyfarm.com and browse to your product.

Absolutely not, and we never will be. What a backward practice having companies prove they're not using harmful pesticides and herbicides . We believe that it should be the opposite - companies that sell products with potentially harmful chemicals should be the ones jumping through hoops.

We are very careful about what we bring into our gardens. We have a close friend who provides us with abundant organic horse manure (meaning her horses only eat organic plants and feed.) That manure is used in new garden plots for building soil and bringing in the worms. We do not use ANY commercially made herbicides and pesticides - rather, we hand-pull weeds, mulch our garden beds, manually seek and destroy pests, and make our own proprietary sprays with botanicals and organic neem. We don't use any commercial chemicals on our land outside of garden areas. We also have our own compost area created from our organic kitchen scraps. Please check our website for blog posts regarding our practices. www.thefreemanfamilyfarm.com

Before planting your seeds, please refer to the label on the product you received. There you will find basic instructions and a link to our website for full details. In order to assist you from afar, we will need detailed photos and a narrative from you in order to paint a picture. You can't just throw things willy-nilly in the ground or pots and have success. Many seeds need special conditions. We provide all you need to succeed. We are not responsible for grower errors but will bend over backward to help you succeed. Not until all avenues are explored will we consider a replacement or refund - and this is determined on an individual basis.
