Farm & Field Seeds

Farm and Field Seeds, including cover crops, comprised one of the most important parts of the business of my prior R.H. Shumway Seedsman catalog. Planting green manures is one of the fastest and cheapest ways to improve soil, as it is unsurpassed as a source of organic matter when cut and then tilled under. It also protects against soil erosion, increases the capacity of the soil to hold water, smothers weeds and hosts beneficial insects. With so many excellent qualities, we certainly invite you to sow cover crops this spring and summer!
