Staying busy but mighty poor…

Most seed companies slow down to a very slow pace this time of year, and cash flow dries up. From now until December, these companies, including Harris Seeds, lose a fair amount of money, as customer purchases come to a sudden halt. We are much like the spring garden center business, having to depend on a few months out of the year for generating profits. Our season begins about January 1st and ends as of June.

As the sales season ends, the catalog and marketing season begins. The marketing department will spend many nights and weekends from now through the fall working on catalog and a host of other business related tasks.
We have been trying to solve the off season sales drought by entertaining new sales and marketing programs. If you have any ideas to share with us, please let us hear from you… we are all ears. Write us at
