About Sharon

When I was a child, I followed my Swiss immigrant grandmother around while she taught me about skills like using a scythe, making sauerkraut, her own clothes, yodeling, butchering animals, and telling stories from the Old Country. I was always drawn to saving seed and using plants for healing. It is my belief that the healthiest food is grown fresh in the garden using only organic and biodynamic gardening methods. I grew up on a local farm and have gardened for 50 years. 

We are as seed Only You walk the Sky Our feet must follow the Earth And find again The path of Beauty.

Sharon's Natural Gardens

feeling this one deeply!She is young, she is old, she’s every age. She’s a daughter, a mother, a sister, a wife. She’s a horsewoman, a cattle woman, a farmer, a veterinarian. She’s a bookkeeper, housekeeper, and keeper of secrets and stories.
She makes traditions, and she bucks tradition. She cooks, she cleans, she breaks horses and breaks the dirt.

She wears high heels and cowboy boots and gym shoes. She wears slacks, dress suits, and blue jeans. She has a manicure. She has dirt under her nails. Her home smells like bread and stew and cow manure.
She spends her days tending to babies, to her fields, to her livestock, to the paperwork, and to her family. She prepares meals, prepares speeches, and prepares the machinery for more work. She isn't afraid to get covered in dirt, in grease, or sweat, but loves being pretty and clean.

She drives a tractor, a combine, a team, an old feed pickup and an SUV. She’s every woman who is growing up ranching or farming, who is running her own operation, or who works in town to keep the dream alive. Her boots might not set foot in the field or her butt in saddle every day, but she’s agriculture, through and through.

She’s watched calves be born, lambs die, nursed colts and puppies and barn kittens back to life. She’s planted crops, waited for them to sprout, and prayed for rain. She’s prayed for sunshine, good harvests, good prices, and good health. She’s weathered the storms, and rallied.

She’s you, she’s me, she is every single woman who believes that agriculture is one of societies' greatest pursuits. She believes in providing food for others, in taking care of her livestock and her ground, and being a steward of the land.

To all the women in agriculture, thank you for sharing your love of this lifestyle with the rest of the world. May you continue to work hard, out in front or behind the scenes. You may go unseen, but not unnoticed. Your work ethic, your heart, and your ability to persevere is inspiring to so many.

With Love,
Richelle

Gorgeous By: Cristine    (Apr 18, 2018) “I ordered Alpine strawberry plants, nettle plant, gooseberry plants and miscellaneous seeds. All were stunning, well grown and packaged. I immediately ordered more from this fine seller.”

from previous customers...

Wonderful experience By:    (Feb 18, 2018) “I purchased seeds from Sharon this year (2018) and it was a wonderful experience. You won’t get this kind of service from a corporate seed company. You really can feel the love that goes into her labor. Her shipping was fast, and her selection is great!…”

We look forward to hearing from you too!

How We Grow

We have gardened our homestead in Delaware over the last 40 years using both organic and biodynamic gardening methods, without any chemicals or commercial manure. Most importantly, we create our own biodynamic compost using our horses manure. In addition, we use seaweed, rock powders, do soil testing, and plant cover crops.

You can also find our organic plants, seeds, herbs, herbal tinctures, and crafts on Local Harvest.org and Etsy.
