Default Wholesale sources for heirloom seeds ?

I am putting together some heirloom vegetable seed collections for my shop. I grow quite a few myself, such as 28 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, but it isn't enough to do what i'm wanting to do.
How do you find sources for larger quantities, does anyone know ? I'm looking for beans, tomatoes, lettuces, staples.

http://www.hazzardsgreenhouse.com/ This doesn't have the cheapest prices but it does have an extensive list of varieties.
Bean seeds start on page-24
Carrot seeds start on page-42
Lettuce seeds start on page-114
Pepper seeds start on page-162
Tomatoes start on page 217

Who you contact for "Wholesale" depends on the quantities, packaging, and how you plan to pay for it. As with any distribution chain there are many different levels and combinations of business models.

As I don't imagine you want that much seed you can talk with some local farmers where they get there seed from. You can probably get the best prices and reliable service from some local seed dealers.

We sell bulk quantities of seed as well. You can find the pricing online, or if you're looking for larger amounts than what is listed (as well as pricing), give us a call and we can let you know what's available. Let me know how we can help!
Thanks!
Laura
