I've been ordering from Pinetree for years. I believe I placed an order from their first year of operation. They were one of the original "alternative" seed companies that sprung up from the backlash to the then new trend of big corporations buying venerable family run seed companies. Pinetree's niche was smaller amounts of seed for a much smaller price. It's target consumer being the home gardener.
Over the years their have been some changes, but their target consumer has remained the same. While many of the original "alternative" seed companies have faded away, Pinetree has prospered.
I have to admit that I'm not as loyal as I once was. When I discovered Fedco back in 2008, from a mention in their catalog ironically, my order size shrank drastically. I still usually place an order each year. This is my "fun" order so to speak.
When they updated their website for 2016 I was overjoyed to find a few items from my most wanted list available. The order arrived in today's mail.
