My husband, Bud, and I met when Bud first started working for Heirloom Solutions. It was working out in the fields together, working in the dirt and enjoying the fresh summer air, where our relationship was formed. A few short years later, we married on a beautiful fall day!
My father, Bill, started Heirloom Solutions back in 2011. In same way, I’ve been involved with the seed business over the years. About 3 years ago, Bud and I took over managing it. We’ve had our challenges, ups and downs, just like anything in life, but we’ve been very blessed to be able to do what we love, working in the garden, enjoying God’s creation and doing it all as a family!
We read in the book of Genesis, “While the earth reminds, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.” (8:22) Every new growing season means a fresh start (which we often need and desire). It allows us a “do over” if things didn’t go so well the season before. It gives us an opportunity to create something wonderful, beautiful and edifying.
Our goal first and foremost is to glorify God in all that we do. With that in mind, we strive to provide the best personal customer service and best heirloom seeds we can. We grow our own seeds in our trial gardens every spring and store them in a Munter’s unit to insure the highest quality of seeds. We add new varieties each year based on customer requests and of course, varieties we are interested in. (I love beautiful flowers and it’s hard for me to narrow down what to add each year!)
Thank you for joining us in this great adventure of life, gardening!
Soli Deo Gloria!
Stephanie and Bud Benson
