Herbal CSA Share for 2019
Homestead Herbals CSA
Please Note - Currently Unavailable for Purchase
Herbal CSA's are modeled after farm Community Supported Agriculture programs, where members purchase a "share" in the season's harvest and receive regular installments of farm goodies throughout the season. Our herbal CSA features locally grown and wild-harvested medicinal plants, tended and harvested by us in small-batches. We wish to promote health through preventative care, using "medicine as food" in daily life. Our herbal CSA will include hand-crafted items such as: herbal loose-leaf teas, herbal salts, medicinal honey, syrups, bitters, tonics, herbal vinegars, as well as healing soaps and body care items.
By joining an herbal CSA you are allowing us to continue to promote wellness in our local community through the use of and education about locally adapted plants. All plants are grown and harvested with the utmost respect.
Subscriptions include 4 deliveries per year: Spring Cleansers (March-April), Summer Bounty (June-July), Autumn Harvest (Sept-Oct), Winter Wellness (Dec). Each delivery features 4-6 items, plus an informative newsletter describing featured herbs, product descriptions and usage, herbal folklore, plant profiles, and additional recipes to try at home.
