They are a NOFA New York-certified organic seed handler. Take a tour with the Harris Seeds team of their facility on Paul Road in Chili. Follow the path of the seeds, beginning with receiving in the warehouse, to the germination lab, climate-controlled packaging and seed storage rooms, and order fulfillment. You’ll get to see the operation in action, and can ask questions of the Harris Seeds team, who will gladly share their diverse knowledge and expertise. Maximum 30, preregistration required.
