Heritage Days Festivals

Message to our valued customers:

We apologize, but until further notice, the Village, Seed Store, Restaurants and phones will be closed. Our April Heritage Festival and May Spring Planting Festival are cancelled as well. We will continue to update our website as developments occur.

We will still be shipping orders as quickly as we can. Please contact us by email at seeds@rareseeds.com with any questions.


Held the First Sunday of the Month March thru October

Join us at Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company as we celebrate the seasons!


Round up the family and come to our exciting, fun-filled festivals that celebrate the growing season with produce, music, crafts and garden speakers!

Spring brings a plant lover’s paradise to our festivals.  In May, our largest festival of the year, be inspired by speakers who truly are America’s cream of the crop!

Then, celebrate summer and fall by savoring the fruits of our labor as we display our gardens’ bounty. Vendors sell many varieties of fruit and produce as well as handmade crafts.

Start the day off right by picking up a fresh cinnamon roll from our bakery, then rock the day away on the front porch listening to one of our many bluegrass bands.

These events are held at our village and farm. Come out and join us!


In 2007 we saw the beginning of our historic town. Besides the Baker Creek seed store, located on our historic property, are a speaker barn, restaurant, an old-time mercantile, herbal apothecary, natural bakery, garden museum and blacksmith shop, two music barns, a Western jail, a native rock oven, a windmill and many breeds of historic poultry and livestock.
