Bring your group to visit our farm!
An Artisan Seeds collaborating membership includes the following:
1. An immediate shipment of seeds for 5 vegetable varieties that are staples of Baia Nicchia Farm. These varieties are known and loved by our customers, and represent some of the best of what we have created and discovered in our 8 years of farming. Includes Aji Amarillo peppers, Highland (Ethiopian) Kale, Mareko Fana peppers, Spike tomatoes and Terremoto winter squash.
2. A minimum of 3 new tomato varieties for the next 10 years, starting with 6 new varieties this year. These are varieties that are slated for release the following year, but you will receive them one year in advance. This year we will be providing seed for three new paste tomatoes and 3 striped beefsteak tomatoes to all collaborating members. SF Bay Area folks can choose to pick up seedlings at our farm in Sunol, instead of seeds.

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.
There are no charges for shipping or handling of any products sold on this website. Currently we can ship orders only in the United States (via USPS first class). Orders may be placed from outside the US, but all orders must have a US shipping address.
