Organic Transplants

As one of the premium suppliers of organic vegetable transplants on the west coast, Headstart Nursery takes pride in being one of the early pioneers in certified organic transplant production. We have been certified by the CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers) since 1993. Our organic program has grown steadily, and we currently produce about 100 million organic transplants each year.

Headstart Nursery's organic customer base ranges from small, specialty growers to large, extended season projects. Over the years, we have adapted our organic production techniques to optimize cultural and prophylactic measures. We use organically approved fertilizer and pest control strategies.

With over 350,000 square feet of certified organic growing space in both Gilroy and the Coachella Valley, Headstart is able to accommodate almost any request for plants on a year-round basis. We can also grow ornamental plugs organically.

Customers can supply their own seed, or Headstart can help facilitate seed acquisition, as long as USDA-approved organic standards and Headstart Nursery seed standards are maintained.

Printable .pdf versions of our current CCOF NOP certification, CCOF GMA certification, and California State Certificate of Organic Registration are available for our customers.
