Please Read Before Ordering
How to order:
For 2021 we will have online ordering for fresh herbs. We stop taking orders for fresh herbs May. 15th.
It is first come first serve and the amount of plant material we have is dependent on Mother Nature and other factors. Crop failure, heavy rains, drought all affect orders. This means that you may not receive the plants you requested. We try to send out emails informing you if we can't harvest for your order, to ensure that you can source from somewhere else.
We ship Monday-Wednesday only and will send tracking number once shipped.
*Minimum for shipping is 2lbs of plant material, you can mix and match herbs, but can't order 1/2 lbs of plants- whole pounds only please.
we ship overnight via ups
The pricing for overnight can sometimes be double to triple the amount of money then your order.
Example: 2 lbs of St Johns Wort going to LA, CA
St Johns Wort- $18x2 = 36
overnight shipping- $80-112
we have decided to up our minimum weight for shipping because this lowers a carbon footprint, helps us with our time and work with such a small crew. We apologize for any inconvenience.
How Do You Package Your Herbs For Shipping?
When shipping fresh herbs we carefully package them in food grade paper with a food grade ice pack to ensure they stay as fresh as possible during shipping. We always pack extra herb to cover water loss during shipping.
Aerial parts are harvested by hand, weighed and then shipped. We do not wash them due to mold issues.hand.
Roots are harvested and cleaned by hand to the best of our ability, and not washed to keep the integrity of constituents as well as to prevent mold.
How Will I know When My Order Will Come?
Plants are harvested at different times and aren't something that can be timed. Therefore we ship when the plants are ready. We will try to send an email to you the week of harvest and shipping to ensure you or someone will be home to receive your order, but sometimes that doesn't happen. Because of this we can not ship around each persons schedule. Harvesting plants is also weather dependent therefore timing of dates can change. We hope you understand.
How To Pay:
2021 fresh herbs will be able to be purchased directly online.
We will be taking deposits for pre-orders in 2021 in February-may 15th. This deposit is only 1.00 per 5lbs of herb. This is a non refundable dollar that covers a handling fee.
