About Our Process
We ship fresh herbs anywhere in the continental US. Our fresh herb shipping process looks something like this: You respond to one of our Herb Availability Update emails (sent every Friday) and let us know the herbs and quantities you’d like. We plan to send your herbs during our next shipping window (Mon – Tues) and give you an approximate quote for shipping costs. We prefer to ship herbs using USPS Express shipping (1-2 days). Keep in mind express shipping costs are expensive and fluctuate daily. We do our best to minimize costs as much as possible! To minimize spoilage potential, fresh herbs are harvested at their peak potency, wrapped in paper and delivered to the post office at the end of day. There is an inherent risk in shipping fresh, live plants. You should not expect that they will be in the same condition when they get to you as when they left us. BUT, most of the time the herbs are in great shape and much more potent than dried herbs!
Herbs are dried and processed on-farm in our climate-controlled herb drying facility. Due to high humidity levels in Eastern Kentucky, we dry our herbs entirely indoors using circulating fans and a dehumidifier. This method, along with using no direct sunlight, results in a final product that is incredibly similar in taste, smell, color and potency to the living plant. We are in the process of installing a solar system so this process will be completely free of fossil fuels by Summer 2021!
