NEW ENGLAND
AGRICULTURAL WAREHOUSE
AND
SEED STORE
NOS. 51 & 52 NORTH MARKET STREET,
BOSTON
JOSEPH BRECK & CO.


We take the liberty to forward to the subscribers of the N. E. Farmer, this sheet containing extracts from our Annual Catalogue of Garden Seeds and Implements, which we trust will prove acceptable to all. The catalogue in question has been published with considerable expense and trouble, and we desire to give every farmer an opportunity to possess it. It contains 80 pages. Those who wish for it in full, can have a copy by applying to the New England Seed Store and Agricultural Warehouse.

In connexion with our Seed and Implement, Store, we have a garden of twenty acres, where we raise, under our own inspection, Garden, Flower Seeds, and Herbaceous Plants. From the long experience the senior partner of the house has had in this department, we flatter ourselves that we shall be able to furnish seeds of genuine sorts, unmixed by other varieties. As it would be impossible to raise every variety of seed pure, in the same garden, part of our supplies are raised by responsible growers, in whom we have perfect confidence, and whose grounds are open at all times for our inspection.

Such seeds as cannot be raised successfully in our own country, we import from the best European houses.

We are thus enable to furnish a full assortment, and of the best quality, Seeds of every description.

We shall be able, at all times, to execute orders from the British Provinces, West Indies, or Southern States, with promptness and at satisfactory prices. Dealers in Seeds, and Country traders, supplied, at wholesale and retail, on the best terms.

Persons who wish for seeds to sell again can be supplied at a liberal discount, with boxes of

various sizes, containing a complete assortment of Seed, mostly used in a kitchen garden, neatly put up in small papers, labelled and sealed, ready for retail, with printed directions on each package, for its management; and every sort warranted to be of the very best quality.

GRASS SEEDS at wholesale and retail at the lowest market prices.

FRUIT, AND ORNAMENTAL TREES, SHRUBS, GRAPE VINES, and all Nursery productions, furnished at one day’s notice, and when requested can be packed into mats or boxes as to be safely sent to Europe or any part of America.

Agriculture was one of the most vibrant fields for technological change in early 19th-century America. The U.S. Patent office was created in 1790 and agriculture was seen as such an essential component of its work. From 1839 until 1862 it was responsible for collecting information about agriculture for Congress. Nearly every item for sale in this Supplement has been patented or "improved." The market for agricultural tools and implements was huge, and new sales could be made for an object that promised huge improvements in productivity. And although some of these items may have been useless, overall the steady improvement of agricultural tools was an essential component in the remarkable increases in productivity of American agriculture during the 1800s.
