Schuylkill Herb Exchange
Herbal Apothecary CSA

What our members have to say…
“I learned so much about the products and it was truly the best money I have spent in a long time.”
“I have done so much more of my own tincture making, herb drying, tea making etc since being a part of your CSA the past two seasons. Still so much to learn and appreciate from you all!”
“I liked that each week the plant was different, and that each product was different (salve, blend, smudge stick, etc.) so that people could see all of the varied ways that one can use herbs. I also loved all of the emails with descriptions about the plants of how it was going on the farm”
