After running a small pilot flower garden last year, we are excited to be expanding our pick-your-own herb and flower share this year at our Newbury farm.
For 12 weeks PYO herb and flower shareholders will be able to walk down to our herb garden and flower field each week to pick a bundle of fresh herbs and a lovely seasonal bouquet of our perennial and annual flowers. Our flower garden includes a bounty of classics such as snapdragons, sunflowers, cosmos, asters, and zinneas plus visually enticing varieties of ornamental grasses and hard to find flowers such as Bells of Ireland, Larkspur, Sweet Cicely and Green Gold Bupleurum! This year we are adding the herbs parsley, dill, cilantro, basil and mint periodically to our CSA distribution. By joining our Pick-Your-Own Herb and Flower Garden share you will be able to pick a weekly bundle of those herbs when you need them plus ones that are rarely seen at the farm stand including, summer savory, Greek oregano, sage, English thyme, lemon thyme, rose geranium, edible flowers, garlic chives, chervil, sage, French Tarragon, zatar, lemon balm, sweet marjoram, spearmint, rosemary and bay laurel. The Newbury PYO garden is open during farm stand hours.
The Pick-Your-Own Garden is open 7 days a week during farm stand hours for 12 weeks July-October and costs $120 for the season. We will also be offering picked flower and herb bouquets for sale at our farm stand. Go to our CSA Shares page to sign up.
