We’re psyched to announce that our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) club was a HUGE success! Nearly all of our first year’s subscribers have already signed up for this year. Now YOU can join them!

UPDATE! We’ve been too busy to raise the price, so for just $380, you and your family can invest in your health, wholeness and happiness by signing up to get a share each month from May to December of 2023, including:

*2oz of fresh herb tincture or extract, made exclusively with homegrown, ethically wildcrafted and/or certified organic ingredients,

*2oz of small-batch crafted salve, oil, lotion or scrub, also made with only ingredients that meet our exacting standards, thoughtfully blended

*2oz of dried herbs grown on our farm or wildcrafted nearby, with occasional additions of ethically sourced, organic herbs

*and a surprise gift every month! These may include edible preparations like infused vinegars and jellies, pro-biotic ferments, and micro-batch baked goods. They could be special creations for your home, like candles or woodcraft. Or they could be additional potions that round out the month’s collection.

And, as a special thank you, you’ll get a tincture and a lip balm as soon as you sign up!

The CSA concept has been around for a while now, and time has proven it very effective. The idea is simple: Farmers need money at the beginning of the growing season, but it often takes months before they have anything much to sell. This fact has been grossly exploited by “conventional” agri-business. Read about the nightmare of credit and waste farmers face in our blog post below. Suffice to say it’s not a viable option for small organic (certified or otherwise) farms.

Pick up locations will be at Warm Springs Herbal, our Roadside Apothecary in Morgan Co., W Va and at the Waverly Farmer’s Market in Baltimore. Live too far to pick up in B*More or Berkeley Springs? No problem! for a one-time fee of $75, we’ll ship your shares to you, anywhere in the US of A!

Don’t happen to have $380 lying around? No worries. You can pay it in thirds, starting with a deposit of $126.65, due by Mayday, with the other 2 installments due by Labor Day. Join Now!

We’ve been busy, but the bees have been busier!

Last year, our CSA subscribers helped us:

  • develop several amazing, small batch potions using homegrown and wildcrafted herbs;
  • get seeds, seedlings and transplants from trusted organic and chemical free sources, including a big, amazing haul from our friends at Fiddler’s Green;
  • Small-batch infused vinegar• acquire a sweet, 40 year old tractor from our neighbor, which we are using sparingly and lovingly to improve and remediate the soil;
  • get some new small tools, including shovels (because we went so hard the first year we broke TWO shovel handles!) and a cordless drill for building and fixing structures;       and, most importantly,
  • have some stability and rhythm during our enormous move from Baltimore to Berkeley Springs! We’re always crafting  top-quality herbal potions; our CSA members made sure those found good homes while we learned our new surroundings and worked to get  Warm Springs Herbal up and running!

This year, we hope to:

  • Offer expanded educational Happenings, including some that are free!
  • Build expanded herb-drying facilities, hopefully in time for the season’s bounty!
  • Construct sustainable fencing to protect our most delicious plants from wildlife!
  • Erect a large, steel-framed greenhouse for plant propagation and growing tender medicinals!
  • Plant carefully selected cover crops to improve and nourish our soil for future growing seasons!

and surely lots of things we haven’t yet thought of!

The shares are carefully curated herbs appropriate to the season and the bounty of the earth. You might get a 2oz bottle of one type of tincture, or two 1oz bottles of two types. Same with the salves and the dried herbs; you might get two ounces of one type, or smaller amounts of several types. This will depend in part on what grows well, as is the nature of CSAs. Sign up today!
