  • MOUNTAIN VALLEY SEED - Open Immediately
    Do you love working outdoors? Do you have a passion for plants or the environment? Company Description: Since 1974 Mountain Valley Seed Co. has been providing fellow passionate growers with a wide range of high quality seeds at wholesale prices. Our business has grown, but we are proud to still be a "little guy" and remain one of the few truly independent seed companies in the nation. We are still catering to the local grower, still operating as a small company and still supporting all of our local growing movements.

    Whether you're a hard-core-old-school farmer, a back-yard-urban-gardener or an organic-local-food CSA grower, our extensive product line has a little something for everyone: from vegetable, herb, sprouting and MicroGreen seeds to wildflowers and exotic flower varieties.

We need someone who listens to customers and can help them have a great experience with our products.
