Fedco provides untreated vegetable and flower seeds, seed potatoes,
bare root nursery stock, flower bulbs, seed garlic, and growing
Welcome to Fedco, your source for cold-hardy selections especially adapted to our demanding Northeast climate. Each year we observe hundreds of varieties, selecting only the best for inclusion in our catalogs. Through our product lines and cultural hints, we encourage sustainable growing methods. We offer a large selection of certified organic cultivars and regional heirloom varieties. We buy products from all over the world.
Fedco has five divisions: Seeds, Potatoes (& Onions & Exotics), Organic Growers Supply, Trees, and Bulbs, and sends out three catalogs annually. We work out of three warehouses in Clinton, Maine. • We ship trees and perennial plants only in the spring. • We ship fall bulbs and garlic only in fall just before planting time. • We ship seed potatoes and onion sets only in April and May. • We ship seeds from January through September, then take a break to prepare next year’s catalog. • We ship books, supplies and cover crops year round. Fedco ships within the U.S. and Canada. We are a cooperative, one of the few seed companies so organized in the United States. Because we do not have an individual owner or beneficiary, profit is not our primary goal. Consumers own 60% of the cooperative and worker members 40%. Consumer and worker members share proportionately in the cooperative’s profits through our annual patronage dividends.
Our cooperative structure gives workers a real voice in running the company and a real stake in its success, enabling us to attract and retain talented workers. Year after year our staff turnover has been very low.
