European Special Reserve Poppy Seeds:

European Special Reserve were an exceptional find and we've been very pleased to have been able to add them to the menu. These are a non-Spanish, non-Dutch variety. Organic, unwashed and non-treated. The best seeds make the best soaps!


OUT OF STOCK! ...European Special Reserve should return sometime in February with brand new, fresh from the farm 2017 stock!



Tasmanian Special Reserve poppy seeds: 


Tasmanian Special Reserve



 This Tasmanian Variety was selected from among many harvests from 2016 and was the best quality seed we could find from current international markets/2016 crops. We will carry it for several weeks at a reduced price while awaiting 2017's best quality, "fresh from the farm" harvests to arrive sometime in February.
