Founded by John Snelling in 2020. Committed to quality seedsmanship in all its forms. Providing support to all those that work with seeds. Open to new challenges in seed supply, especially those that are out of the mainstream and that may need a custom and flexible approach to succeed.

Rogue Seed is born out of a desire to create an organization where good people, who are great seedsmen, can do what they are passionate about: Provide the best seeds possible so that growers can start their productions right. Like many industries, the seed business is constantly changing, but the foundations of seedsmanship are still needed to grow and deliver the seeds that our society depends on for their food and fiber. While our industry is small compared to others, we know the importance of seeds for all mankind.
