Learn how to breed new varieties in your garden or on your farm. See a variety of our breeding squash, pepper and tomato breeding projects. Seeds of breeding populations will be distributed to interested workshop attendees. The workshop is led by Fred Hempel -- co-owner of Baia Nicchia Farm, and breeder for Artisan Seeds. Workshops start with a tour of the farm.
The December breeding workshop will focus on record-keeping and on genetic principles important for breeding. Complementary workshops in March will focus on hands-on methods for cross-pollination in tomatoes, and on an analysis of many of the breeding plants growing on-site for breeding purposes.

New varieties created on the farm
Baia Nicchia Farm (Sunol, CA) produces new true-breeding varieties of tomatoes and sells them via the Artisan Seeds brand. Buy our true-breeding tomato varieties from Johnny's Selected Seeds. They will carry seeds for seven of our "Artisan" cherry tomato varieties this coming year! Seeds will be available November 15th, when Johnny's new catalog goes live. Plants, and grafted plants of our varieties are available at Garden Life, Log House Plants and Plug Connection. For wholesale seed, please contact AP Whaley Seed.
This online store will not carry the Artisan Seeds tomato varieties that are available through Johnny's Selected Seeds. We will, however, carry exceptional true-breeding tomato varieties that are not currently sold at Johnny's. We will also carry land-races of other selected crops that we grow at our farm in Sunol. These landraces have been of particular value to Baia Nicchia and are featured at our farmers' market, and in Bay Area restaurants.
