For 2023 the on farm herbalist Marissa is offering a selection of workshops!
Keep your eyes peeled for more dates to come.
See below for her first of many!

Learn how to make your own potent herbal oils and transform them into salves for use in first aid and skin care. This is an introductory course that will give you comprehensive knowledge of using dried herbs for making infused oils and salves.

What is a salve? What base oil should I use? How long do I infuse my herbs? Do I use a heat method? What is the shelf life of these oils? How should I use them? What ratio of beeswax to oil do I use to make a salve? We take you through all the steps and answer all your questions about making these preparations. This course is meant for participants with the most basic knowledge of herbalism. If you have little to no knowledge of herbal oils and salves, then this course will build your confidence in making your own herbal oils and salves.

Marissa has many years of experience crafting herbal oils and salves. She will guide you through all the steps and answer your questions related to making these topical preparations. Participants will leave the workshop with a prepared herbal oil and salve they made during the workshop. Participants will also be sent a document outlining all the steps of making herbal salves and oils, so they can make them at home with confidence.
$45 per participant

Meet Marissa of Marissa’s Herb Garden!
In 2021 we were looking to shift our foraging/herbal products to another small business. We met Marissa a few years earlier through another farm. She was the perfect fit! We share resources with each other and help spread the word of her new herbal business. You can learn more about her under our Partnership section!

Why the Herbal Wellness Box?

– It is an opportunity to stock your apothecary with seasonally crafted products that support your health and wellbeing.

– It is an opportunity to follow the rhythm of the seasons and to learn more about the herbs that are available to you seasonally.

– Each purchase of the Herbal Wellness Subscription is an investment to support this small farm throughout the seasons. Think of it like a CSA subscription (Community Supported Agriculture).

– Subscribers get a better price than the full retail value of these items, and some of the products in this box are exclusive to subscribers.

Each box may contain some of the following: salve, balm, herbal oil, oxymel, hydrosol, seasoning herbs, seasoning salts, tincture, herbal syrup, tea blend, and more. Plus, receive an electronic file on how to use each product with simple recipes and detailed information on featured herbs.

Because of the unpredictability of seasons year to year, and because each product is custom made according to the seasons, the contents of the box may not be disclosed ahead of time. 

This is a preorder item. Each box will be released seasonally and subscribers will be notified by email the time for pickup, first box being released in May 2023.
