"Just wanted to let you know that I grew the Mirai 421 white corn this season. ABSOLUTELY the best corn I have ever had in my life. My whole family went crazy over this corn. It is the total package. SWEET, TENDER, BEAUTIFUL, and the silks seem to be tight enough to keep out pests. We used no insecticides at all and never had any problems. I wish I could express to you how pleased we are with this corn.
I am beyond impressed with Harris Seeds. I am an avid gardener and farmer. I love to grow things. I will admit that I have used a few different companies throughout the years. But for the last few it has been Harris Seeds and[another company]. I have no complaints about [the other company] and as a matter of fact they have been a great company to do business with. But with Harris Seeds I feel as if I am dealing with family. A company that pays attention to its patrons and makes them feel like they matter. And the loyalty discounts show that Harris Seeds appreciates my business and this makes me feel like my money is well spent. I do not want to go on and on about how happy I am with Harris Seeds because I would take up to much time. So I will just say that I will do all my business with Harris Seeds from now on. All of you at Harris Seeds have earned it."
"I have to say I don't buy as much as from your company as others do, but I buy most all my supplies from your company. People around here ask me where I buy my seeds, I tell them. They comment that the prices are higher. My comment is maybe so but they stand behind there product. They go that extra mile. Your people make me feel like I matter, not to mention the great seeds. There are many companies out there that only look at the bottom line and forget about the people that make the bottom line possible. Thank you again." - Matt (NE)
"I wanted to let you know how wonderful the Prizewinner pumpkins were last year. I really didn't go out of my way to baby the plants and almost every pumpkin tipped the scales at over 200 pounds and I had a few break 250 pounds. They were simply amazing to see, and back breaking to get out of the garden. " - Tom (NY)
"It is with mixed emotions that I inform you that my wife and I have stopped farming and are fully retired. We have ordered from you for 23 years and have always been impressed by the service and excellent and courteous treatment by you all. We have consistently recommended you to all our friends. If all companies satisfied their companies like you, we would all benefit." - Jack (NY)
"Revolution pepper has again outperformed any other that I have ever grown. In fact this year I bought a few commercial ones to supplement what I had grown. All of those nearly died of some attack, but the Revolutions across the path did fine. Also, I must say that the "experimental" Savannah green bean has done very well, and is well above average in taste [in some ways even beats Crockett, which we also like very much]. We have had at least 3 pickings from each of those. Thanks!" - Stephen

"First of all I want to thank you people for helping me keep my operation growing. I tell a lot of people about you. I have been raising tomatoes for 21 years through the high tunnel method. The Primo Red is the best money making determinate tomato I have ever grown. People rave about the taste. – Charlie
"Just a note to thank you for great seeds and service. This past growing season was cold and wet, causing many local gardeners to have crop failure. Thanks to Harris Seeds, my crops excelled as usual. Great sweet corn and pumpkins." – Robert
"We started using Harris for a couple of varieties we couldn’t get from our normal suppliers. We’ve been very happy with seed quality and the accuracy of the product descriptions." - The Vaughn Family (pictured right)
"Good service is one of the reasons our family has dealt with Harris Seeds for many years. Again, thanks." - Dave R.
"We planted 900 of the pumpkin seeds we bought from Harris Seeds. All seeds have sprouted within a week. Thank you for a quality product." - Pam and Phil H.
"I planted your Provider Green Beans at our farm this year. WOW!! Provider is the right name, we've been harvesting about 45 pounds of beans / 160 feet of row. This is the first year we planted green beans and are astounded at the productivity and great taste of this variety. This is an excellent product, Thanks!!" - Stephen M., SC
"Just a little note to let you know that I received my [plugs and liners] at my requested time and everything came complete and in very good shape and very healthy. I am very pleased with Harris Seeds, my broker, and Raker! I also placed a seed order and I love the package the seeds came in." - Linda

Van looks forward to seeing the new Harris Seeds catalogs so he can start preparing for next year's fair!
"I wanted to contact you to let you know that you have raised the bar to the highest level. First off I have never ordered seeds from a company and had them follow-up with me to assure my order was correctly received and to answer any questions that I may have. That was amazing but then when you open up the communication lines to allow your experts to work one on one with individuals and guide them along the growing process that was just unbelievable. I have contacted my account rep a couple of times for assistance which I received with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. But a couple of weeks ago I talked to a vegetable expert who helped me correct some of my mistakes. Once I followed his instruction my replants are doing wonderfully. I just wanted to let you know that I greatly appreciate the help and service beyond compare. It’s easy to see how you have been in operation for so many years. Keep up the excellent work!" - Paul, OH
"I just want to say, I planted the variety Sassy pickling cucumber last year for the first time. It was awesome, the best variety of pickle I have ever raised. We sell canning pickles and our customers raved about it. I myself canned them and they have the best flavor. I will definitely be getting that seed from you again this year. Thank You." - Geraldine
"As new greenhouse owners, and recent farm owners, we are more than excited about what has arrived from your company, the contact from you, and the quality of seeds (tomatoess are planted and we are eagerly awaiting their arrival!). I thank you for your e-mail, and all the help that your service people have given us over the phone. You can count on us ordering again from you in the near future and in the years to follow. I hope that your week goes well!" - Janet B. & John E., Owners/Operators of ThunderCrest Farm
"We just wanted you to know how delighted we were with Applause corn. Absolutely the best we've have had in years!! Please don't change it's makeup in any way. Last night we tried some that we'd frozen and it too was delicious. Applause has been aptly named." - Irv and Mary
"Over the years I have planted many of your sweet corn types with great success. Right now I favor Northern Xtra Sweet, Harris' 1001, Sweet Rhythm and Applause. In the summer we have Neighbors and Church Friends in for a corn roast and have 28-34 people at one time. Almost everyone has never had sweet corn like yours. When they eat the first ear they cannot believe it. To keep up with this many people I have several microwaves going with about 8 ears in a gallon freezer bag. This is quick and provides excellent quality sweet corn fast." - Regis K.
"Harris 1001 sweet corn - just wanted to pass on to you that we LOVE this corn. We have a small garden stand and people come back to us time and time again and tell us how much they just love this corn and that they have bought corn at different stands 'but that is just the best corn we've had all summer'." - Sheila, VT
"I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciated the Farm Fresh reusable bags. We sold them at cost to our market customers just so that we can start eliminating plastic bags. When our market administration saw them, I purchased a case for them to use at a promotion for one of our festivals. Anyone that purchased a certain amount from vendors at the market and brought their receipts to the admin tent, got a free bag. It went over well and I see so many people at our markets walking around with these bags. We've told everyone where they came from. So, thanks again for helping the environment. I'm thinking about ordering some more :) " - Kathy, KY
"Thank you for calling and thanking me for my order. In all of the years of gardening and many dollars later this was the first phone call that I have had. I was in such shock that someone called to thank a customer. Since you have shown your special interest in your customers, be sure that you will be the only seed company that I will deal with in the future. Thank you again for your kindness and interest." - Shirley, WI
"We ordered Lumina Pumpkin seeds from Harris last spring, our intentions were to grow good hard round pumpkins, with a weight between 8 & 10 pounds. These pumpkins were to be used specifically for the World Championship Punkin Chunkin event held annually in Delaware. Even with a very dry growing season, we were able to grow some good hard pumpkins. Thanks Harris for good quality seeds." - Harry T., DE
"I have never done this before but I had to tell you about the experience I have had with your seeds. I purchased your Majestic Pansy seed and I also had some pansy seeds from another source. I cannot believe the difference. The seeds were planted at the same time. Your seed has out preformed the other by leaps and bounds. Glad I have found you." - B.E., AR
"We ordered seeds from very few others. You are our main source for seeds and plugs. Whenever I have a question, I do not hesitate to call. You are most supportive in the horticulture industry and it is most appreciated. We buy the most seeds for the best price with the best quality. That describes exactly what you offer." - Brent S.
"I just wanted you to know that I had ordered my candy onion plants from your company and they are the best I have ever seen. I believe that almost all are growing and I have started to harvest and are selling them. I am very impressed with the products you have and the information you pass on to us growers and market vendors and managers. The staff is very helpful and go way beyond to help in any way possible. Thanks." - Dawn K., vendor and market manager for the Toledo Iowa Farmers' Market
"Just wanted to drop a line about your pumpkin program. We
planted more of the Magic Lantern and
Sorcerer. They both turned out a pretty good yield considering the
monsoons we had. We also tried Aladdin this year and I am sold on
these. I am going to plant more of these this
year. Sold out of everything we had in about 3 weeks due to the fact that we were the only ones in about a 10 mile radius that had any pumpkins this year. Pretty good considering we planted two weeks late this year. THANKS!" - C. Weber, PA
