Today’s Cool Company is Old House Gardens, one of the leading heirloom seed catalog companies in the world.

What makes the company cool–more than the fact that they run their business out of an old Victorian home in Ann Arbor, MI–is the fact that they’re so totally passionate about one mission: Providing and preserving heirloom seed/plant varieties.

Their focus affords CEO Scott Kunst and his team the ability to apply ALL of their resources to the singular goal of the company. And that makes them one of the best in the business.

So good, in fact, that Martha Stewart has featured the company. That’s what often happens when you’re the best in your space – opportunity seems to come your way.

Now the other "cool factor" is just the very nature (no pun intended) of the business. How incredible to deal in exotic and unique seeds that are chock full of history and, when purchased and planted, create beautiful flowers, herbs and vegetables?!

Read their story to learn more about just how cool Old House Gardens is.
