I started the Jebadiah Fisher Garden Seed Company about 65 days ago, in that very short time span a lot has transpired, it has been a whirl wind experience. I think the part I enjoy the most is receiving phone calls from folks from all around the country.
Our google ranking has done very well in two short months, mind you with very little SEO.
If I Google the term “Bulk Garden Seed” JFGS is on page #1, and if you were to do a Goggle search for “Garden Seed” JFGS lands on page #4, not as good but for 60 days, I will take it.
I have not mentioned my competitors pricing, since starting my company, even though I have the outlet of this blog at my disposal to do so if I wished, but I haven’t. It would be rather easy to demonstrate just how much my competitors are charging.
Sometimes in life a opprotunity will present itself, yesterday that rare event occurred, now that others have breached the door, I have to ask myself why not? As long as it is in the correct context and fair. I received a comment on this article ” Hanging Judges”
The comment was a link to this. http://howtosaveseeds.com/ And by the way it is some stellar information, I would highly recommend downloading and saving. I approved the comment and link, even though it does have contact information for a few of my competitors….. fair play!
Then I clicked the author of the comment, this is his website http://eatgrueldog.wordpress.com/, I have no reason to believe it was done out of malice, he was probably just passing on the information to me….. fair play!
So now that the door has been broached…… shall we do a few price comparisons? Now keep in mind these types of seed companies are not on the high-end of the pricing spectrum, one should consider their prices fair, they are not SEED PIMPS.
Let us see just how my prices measure up to theirs with a high-end seed ( Tomato ) and a low-end seed ( Bush Bean), I will use the exact variety of seed…… fair play! I also decided to add the Watermelon…. fair play!

Royal Burgundy Bush Bean 2.5 pounds $15.56 don’t forget to add the shipping, Guaranteed Ground of $11.45 ( this is similar to how I ship ) Total: $27.10 or $10.84 average for the 1 pound price shipped….. not a bad price.
