Why order fresh botanicals as opposed to dry?

For some botanicals, the constituent ingredients and essential oils are at peak levels when the plant is fresh rather than dried. Many manufacturers and practitioners prefer certain freshly harvested herbs for their formulas.

Important things to know when sourcing fresh botanicals:

    • Fresh herbs are harvested right on our farm and shipped to you that same day! You can also pick up at the farm. 
    • Fresh leaves and blossoms are shipped UPS Next Day Air with ice packs
    • Fresh roots are shipped UPS 2nd Day Air with ice packs
    • All fresh shipments must be opened and processed immediately upon receipt to ensure maximum potency and freshness, and to avoid spoilage.
    • Shipping can be cost-prohibitive:
    • Minimum order: 1 lb.

It's not too late!




Please call us at 802-456-1590 or email us at to place your fresh orders (leaf, flower or root) for the upcoming season! We encourage you to call or email early; at least one month before harvest time. When you call or email to place your fresh order, we can help you put together your order and also put you on our list to call when harvest time is near. When we are ready to harvest, you will be contacted to confirm your order, and we will provide you with shipping information. We will then custom pack and ship your order.

We will need the following information to place you order: Full name, shipping address, phone number, email address, and your fresh botanicals order


PLEASE NOTE: You will receive notice for your shipment one to two days ahead of time. We cannot precisely determine when we will harvest, as it is based on each botanical’s stage of growth and weather conditions. Harvest dates are often difficult to predict. We cannot issue refunds on fresh orders.
