3. Organic Seed Collection
Chas C. Hart Seed Co.
From the very beginning, our farms in Maine and Wethersfield, Conn. produced much of the seed we offered for sale. Over the years, we have contracted with growers to produce seed that meets the needs of our demanding family, farmers and gardeners; untreated, weed-free, with a germination percentage that far exceeds the federal standard. As USDA certified organic varieties became available that were able to meet those exacting standards, we’ve offered them to our customers. Today, all of the garden seed we offer must still meet every one of those standards — plus, we’ve made a commitment not to sell any seed that has been produced through genetic engineering (The GE Free Promise). We offer 24 certified organic varieties in retail packets. These varieties were chosen because they offer many ways to enjoy them; as sprouts, micro-greens, shoots, baby greens, juice, and of course delicious mature vegetables, too! There are even organic nasturtiums for edible flowers.

1. Rapid Garden Point-of-Sale Systems
Rapid Garden POS
Green retailers have distinct challenges that standard, off-the-shelf, point-of-sale systems aren’t designed to manage — particularly production oversight of living inventory. Implementing a POS solution built specifically for growers, such as Rapid Garden POS, allows you to effectively:
1. Convert inventory from single units to combined items with production kitting tools. Our system even recommends a suggested price based on items used.
2. Transition growing inventory into larger containers (and price points). Rapid Garden POS works just as easily in reverse for plants that you divide or those that need to be nursed back to a sellable condition.
3. View real-time data, so you can track exactly where your production inventory is and its current status — without the cost of an enterprise-level production management system. Adapt your existing systems and tools into a central solution that manages dispatch and service, delivery, shipping and fulfillment, accounting and more!
