About Us

Our Story

For 145 years and counting, Burpee has been innovating and inspiring gardeners to grow. We offer a broad range of hybrid, heirloom, and certified organic seeds and plants because we know that no two gardens or gardeners are alike. Our goal is to help everyone enjoy the rewards of home gardening, no matter where you live or how large your backyard.

Since our founding in 1876, Burpee has introduced countless new vegetable, flower, herb and fruit varieties – including the original ‘Iceberg’ lettuce (1894), the first white marigold (1976) and the biggest beefsteak tomato ever bred (2014). To this day, our historic home at Fordhook Farm in rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is a trial ground for the next garden breakthroughs.
