Sandveld Organics certified organic vegetable, salad and herb seeds perform well under organic cultivation. Sandveld seeds are all grown in the open pollinated way and contain no genetically modified organisms whatsoever. Most varieties qualify for heirloom status defined by Wikipedia as ‘’cultivars that are still maintained by gardeners and farmers particularly in isolated or ethnic communities’’. Other heirloom definitions require a variety’s age to be at least 50 years or older, which also applies to most of their plant varieties.
Sandveld have for years been importing and working with certified organic seeds from Sativa Rheinau AG in Switzerland (Certified by Demeter or Bio Swiss). Selected seeds have been produced in cooperation with Jamaka Organic Farm in the Cederberg area; they are certified through SGS. Sandveld Organics has been registered with the Department of Agriculture as grower, cleaner & seller of seed since 2002.
