What's with Baker Creek?

2 months ago

Baker Creek is supposed to be an excellent seed company, but when I go to their website it's now something called Rare Seeds. I could understand that being their URL, but it's also the name shown at the top of each web page. Even when I do a site search for pages that say "Baker Creek," that name is gone -- with the only exceptions being their physical location (still Baker Creek Road), the copyright at the bottom of each page, the photo of their 2023 paper catalog, and (of course) their history page.

I'm concerned that the founders may either have sold the company or turned over management to someone else (as seems to be happening these days with a number of other other once-reliable seed companies).

Does anyone know what's going on?
