A little bit about us...
From a very young age, we have always loved growing our food and watching plants grow. What had started as a school project had evolved into a lifelong passion. When we were in elementary school, we were learning about germination. Our teachers had us wrap pinto beans in a damp paper towel and after a few days, we watched them sprout. The thought that a plant or a tree can grow out of a tiny seed still holds our amazement to this day.
We had started a few gardens a few years ago, and we began to collect seeds from heirloom varieties of plants we had grown. We started our small company and have been growing ever since. We reach out to various family seed farms, local seed farms, and seed exchanges to procure our inventory. We believe sustainably sourced seeds are best for the environment and the garden. Our goal is to expand, to have our seed packets printed out with our artwork, and to give back to the community.
We are passionate about heirloom, organic, and hybrid pumpkin varieties. We are always keeping up to date on new varieties being developed, as well as forgotten or rare heirlooms that are experiencing a resurgence. In addition to our vast array of pumpkin seeds, we also offer exciting hybrid and heirloom varieties of various fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. We continually seek out exciting new seeds for folks to try.
We hope you are excited about the selection, and that you get to experience the same joy we do every year when we grow several of them. Gardening is an adventure, and there are exciting things to learn each year. Visit our blog to see what we are growing, garden updates, and to ask questions or find out more about gardening.
Meet the team
It's great to meet you! I'm the owner of Blue Pumpkin Seed Co., and I have a passion for gardening. I am a proud graduate of Pikes Peak Community College, holding a graphic design degree.
When I'm not busy running the shop, you can often find me indulging in my other hobbies, such as making my own wine, drawing, and watercolor painting. I also run a tea shop on Etsy. As an ardent lover of Halloween and Autumn, I wholeheartedly embrace all the spooky delights that come with them. Additionally, I'm a huge dog lover and take joy in sharing my knowledge of gardening with others. So, let's embark on this exciting journey together and explore the wonders of gardening and the enchantment of the season!
Hello everyone! I'm Sarah, it's good to meet you. Brian and I have been the best of friends since we were very young. I may not have a permanent address due to my spouse's work, but I always make sure to find my way to Colorado each season to lend a helping hand when things get busy.
Even though I'm not physically present all the time, I provide my assistance virtually as needed. My role encompasses various tasks, including managing social media, handling order fulfillment, and coordinating some of the amazing giveaways we do. Additionally, I have a keen eye for photography, and I love capturing beautiful moments and scenes for both the tea and seed shop.
Hello there! My name is Leslie, and I am Brian's twin sister. I help Brian whenever he gets super busy. One of my main roles is to assist him in counting and labeling seeds, ensuring everything is organized for his gardening endeavors. I also help get the seeds going for the gardens each year.
While supporting the shop, I also dedicate a significant portion of my time to taking care of our mother and father. Apart from my family responsibilities, I have a few passions that bring me joy and fulfillment. Dogs hold a special place in my heart, and I actively volunteer at dog rescues, spreading love and care for these incredible creatures. In my free time, you'll often find me crafting handmade jewelry or immersed in the art of cross-stitching. I also have a knack for drawing, although it's more of a hobby.
Hello there! My name is Alex, and I'm delighted to meet you. I help with a variety of tasks, such as counting smaller seeds, fulfilling orders, and tending to the gardens as needed. Additionally, I lend a helping hand to our Spanish-speaking customers. Hailing from the beautiful city of Lima, Peru, I bring a touch of my Peruvian heritage to our work. I love helping with the Aji chilis and Huacatay in particular. I take great pleasure in contributing to the garden, as it allows me to connect with nature. During my leisure time, I have a passion for cooking authentic Peruvian dishes, engaging in conversations with my family back in Peru, and cherishing moments with my furry companions, my dogs.
