About Mumm's

We have been farming organically since the 1970s, and selling high quality organic sprouting seed for over 30 years. The farm is located near Shellbrook, Saskatchewan, Canada and through our warehouse located in Parkside, Saskatchewan we can ship anywhere in Canada or the US. We also export overseas.

Jim and I started farming, by "going back to the land" in the mid 1970's. We had milk cows, chickens, pigs, sheep, honey bees, leafcutter bees, a big garden, and a small saw mill. One of the main crops we grew on our small organic farm was alfalfa seed. Over half of our farm is still original forest.

Fifteen years later we had two small children, a flock of sheep and a side line business selling our organic alfalfa and radish seed for sprouting. The coyotes helped us to decide to get out of sheep by killing 60 one summer, despite our best efforts.

Our sprouting seed business kept growing and growing and by the mid 1990's it was more than we could handle, so we took the big step of expanding our team. In 2000 we moved our sprouting seeds and office from the farm to an old curling rink in the nearby town of Parkside. Now it's still more than we can handle, but we have a great crew helping us.

It's been an adventure getting to the point we are now. Jim has retired from the office to spend his days on the farm. Although our business has outgrown the capacity of our small farm, Jim and our daughter Lisa continue to grow some specialty sprouting seed crops on our farm. We have had the good fortune of being able to source our sprouting seeds from organic farmers who are open minded, innovative, and a pleasure to know. We source most of our seed from farmers in Saskatchewan, but seed that doesn't grow well in our climate is grown on organic farms outside the province or country.

In 2009, after completing a BA in International Studies at the University of Saskatchewan, and a brief stint at McGill Law, our daughter Lisa returned home to pursue her passions of organic agriculture and sustainable food systems. She's actively involved in the movement to protect farmers and consumers from the threat of GMOs. She also sits on the board of the Canada Organic Trade Association and Organic Connections. Lisa is proud to be a fifth generation farmer. In 2015 Lisa and her husband Paul recently welcomed the next generation to our farm- our grandson Nico.

Storage

Sprouting Directions

Prepare enough moisture into your soil ahead of time.

Soak as per package directions. Drain soak water. Rinse, then sow the soaked seed on the soil.

Sprinkle the dry seeds over the moistened soil in a tray, and press them gently into the loose soil. Cover loosely with a clean towel, unbleached paper towel, plastic. Stack an empty tray on top of the towel/plastic. put weight in the empty tray. This will help root the seeds into the soil check daily to determine the moisture.

After the seeds begin to germinate, you can remove the towel/plastic and weight, and continue spritzing the seed twice daily until it reaches desired height.

Growing tips: To obtain great germination, keep your seeds at a steady temperature (70F). After germination, avoid keeping the soil too moist.

Harvesting tips: If most of the seedlings still have seed hulls attached to their leaves, a few days before harvest day, mist the leaf canopy couple of times and place plastic sheet over top. Hulls should pull off and release easier. Feature the bright stem of the seed by cutting close to the soil.
