Organic Vegetables and Herbs

We've just posted the first of 9 videos on the use of herbs and history of Herbfest to help educate our customers on the herbs. Video little grainy but does have some information you may find helpful.

First three videos deal with how Herbfest started, what it's about and third one on why use organic seeds for our organic herbs and vegetables.


Some of The Herbs Offered:
Below are examples of some of the herbs we have offered at previous herbfests.

Premiering Use of Organic Pots

Herbfest, 2007 was one of the first plant sales in the U.S. to use biodegradable containers for our herb plants. These environmentally friendly sustainable containers insure your food, seasoned with our herbs, provides a healthy option for you. In 2008 our grower, John Wrenn, obtained USDA certification for his organic growing methods and processing.

HerbFest 2008 will feature certified organic herbs and certified organic vegetables grown from organic seeds. We strive to continue to emphasize our goal of being a healthy lifestyle festival for those attending.

We continue to work with our growers to produce biodegradable and plantable pots to minimize your efforts and also to restore nutrients to our soils.
