Our small herb farm is nestled in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts.Our fresh herb shares are composed of a diverse assortment of fresh medicinal and culinary herbs ready for home use. From roots to shoots to leaves and flowers, we grow an ever diversifying variety of herbs using sustainable and certified organic practices on our land in Florence or are respectfully wild-harvested in our area’s fields, forests, hills and valleys.
We send out a newsletter before every share where members get to read about some of the new herbs offered and then choose 5 from the availability list.

Before every share we send out an e-newsletter with info about the herbs, recipes and other resources to help members make the most of their share. Many of our members return year after year as they expand their apothecaries and pantries.
Members are free to choose whichever herbs they’d like from our offerings that week for all their cooking and medicine making needs.
What is your favorite summer item? What do you like to cook with?
“I love tulsi, also called holy basil, because it is amazing medicine, tastes great and can be used in so many different ways. I like to make tea with it, tinctures, oils, vinegars, toners and I’ll cook with it too, swapping it for sweet basil in a recipe.” Susan Pincus from Sawmill Herb Farm (Florence,MA).
