Does anyone know where I can buy NON GMO seed (Corn and Soybeans)? I need to plan next years crops

Preferably they should be located in NW Iowa. Please respond with any source web page or phone.

Thanks

1. I don't know of any in Iowa,

but Baker Creek and Territorial are where I usually get mine.

Baker Creek: http://rareseeds.com/
Territorial: http://www.territorialseed.com/

Edited to add: Seed Saver's Exchange is based in Decorah Iowa, but I've never dealt with them before.

5. how much are you planting?

seed savers exchange is in NE Iowa, but they don't have a lot of regular varieties- great stuff, though

avoid these- (some GMO, some just owned by big M)

7. Holmes has the best prices for corn, as far as i've seen, and all the GMOs are marked

they're very nice on the phone, too.

i think they're a mom and pop type place.

here's some good soybeans-

they have gmo, too, ^^^ but they breed their own.

here's a good list of stuff to avoid, i think- it seems to be by an ex-seed salesperson
