Hudson Valley Seed company takes breeding to an art form. All of their seeds are open pollinated on their upstate New York Farm, all heirloom, organic and never GMO. Each year they do an open call for artists to design their beautiful packaging.
In the Pali language of ancient Buddhism, "Metta" is the word for loving-kindness, the attribute of benevolence and good will felt toward others. In our neck of the woods, Metta evokes the name of our road and the nearby hamlet: Mettacahonts, a word likely of Mahican origin that means "tree-shaded creek." So, we named this lovely lettuce mix Metta to express our love for it, to embody the good will of sharing seeds, and to help our customers feel connected to our little seed farm in this beautiful corner of the world.
Contains Flashy Butter Oak, Rouge d'Hiver, Buttercrunch Bibb, Tango, and Hyper-Red Rumpled Wave lettuces.
