"All of us at High Mowing Organic Seeds are passionate about food and farming. Some of us run our own farms. Some of us have farmed in the past. Most of us grow some of our own food. We are a fun-loving group with diverse interests, brought together by our common love of growing, on whatever scale, appreciation for the importance of sustainable agriculture, and tolerance of a cold climate."
When the early European settlers came to New England, they brought with them their livestock-based agriculture. The practice of mowing hayfields and storing winter feed was well-established, and became even more important when they encountered the long winters in northern New England. But instead of calling such a field a "hayfield" like we do today, they called it a "mowing". These fields, or mowings, were usually further identified by a descriptor referring to location: the "back mowing" was behind the farm, the "low mowing" was in the valley, and the "high mowing" was up on the hilltop. In northern Vermont, where small rivers wind their way through mountainous and hilly terrain, nearly all mowings are "high mowings". A hundred years ago, farms on these hillsides had names like "High Mowing Farm" or "High Mowing Acres". When this seed company first started, they not only liked the sound of "high mowing", but it was an old, regionally specific, agricultural term that fit the kind of seed company they are: farm-based and rooted in a place.
