About Us

We are Roddy Branagan and Setha Davenport. We founded Setha's Seeds in 2013 and have been growing NZ Heritage Seeds for 10 years. The last 7 years we have spent in sunny Hawke's Bay. Our passion for seed started when we were working on an organic farm in the Wairarapa growing both seed and vegetables. After eating our own organic produce, we could not go back to buying vegetables. Food security, local produce, and seasonality became our priorities for our table and seed completes the circle. This last year we welcomed our daughter, River Rose into the world and now more than ever see how important it is to grow and consume healthy food.    


Recently we have been featured in two documentarys about seed saving produced by The Localising Food Project.  Check out their trailers here.

In the June 2016 issue of Kiwi Gardener magazine we were mentioned in as a great place to source NZ Heritage Garlic seed. View the article.
