Why choose seed from Pure Prairie Vision?
Avoid the ecologically unsound practice of planting cultivars and seed that is adapted to other regions.
This technique of harvesting yields a mix that has multiple benefits over cleaned, straw free mixes. First, our seeds are still in their hulls, therefore, planting them is as simple as imitating nature.
To broadcast seed, one can easily scatter without worry of over or under seeding. Just grab a handful and throw it around. This is difficult to do with overly "cleaned" seed which is debulked and dehulled
Broadcast by hand, tractor broadcast spreader, or plant with a native seed drill.
Because of our native harvest technique, we do not pass unnecessary costs of cleaning and sorting onto you! You receive a high quality Iowa Eco-type mix that is easy to plant and ethically sound.

Tall Grass Mesic Prairie Seed Mix
Our tall grass prairie mix is a high quality, true Iowa prairie mix. Harvested from our expanded remnant prairie in central Iowa, our seed is a direct descendent from ancient prairies that once covered the midwest. We do not mono-crop our species, or ever use cultivars. We strive to provide an ethical mix that is local and true to native prairie ecosystems.
This mix will include a healthy mix of forbs (wildflowers) and grasses, laboratory confirmed to contain no presence of noxious or invasive species.
