Spangle Creek Labs has a great page for information or will flask for you.

This is one of the preeminent flasking labs for personal and professional
purposes. Great folks out of Minnesota.
I’m fairly certain the owner was one of the people that figured out how to
produce successfully at scale and help save the wild populations around the
country. Friend of mine worked with them on restoring wild populations of
Cyp. Kentuckyiense in its far southern range in Louisiana from wild seed
provided to Spangle Creek.
