Thank you for your interest in ordering fresh herbs with us. If you are interested in biweekly or monthly orders of fresh herbs please visit our CSA page to see if it’s the right fit for you.
This page is instructions in how to order fresh herbs for those whom are NOT members of our CSA:
You can either pick up from one of our locations in Florence, Brooklyn, or Cambridge – or we can ship the fresh herbs to you via UPS Ground. We harvest our fresh herbs in two week cycles, so if you are picking up from the farm in Florence there is one set of dates you’ll need to pay attention to for ordering, and if you are picking up in Brooklyn or Cambridge, or getting the share shipped to you there is another set of dates. Check out the calendar below to see the dates. More details below.
We update our availability list every week once the season gets underway and orders will need to be placed by the Sunday PRIOR to the delivery week.
How to order:
BEFORE placing your order, please read this page thoroughly and double check the dates for placing an order and for picking up. Visit our ordering page to place your order. The first item on the page is “*NON-MEMBERS ADD PICKUP LOCATION TO CART”. Choose the pick up location and add this item to your cart. There is a delivery charge for picking up at Remedies, Sacred Vibes, Curio and for shipment via UPS. Add the desired herbs to your cart: Underneath each herb is an option for “Add-on” or by the pound, please choose those for yours as the “CSA Share” option is reserved for members.
Details for Picking up in Brooklyn or Cambridge (Thursdays – every two weeks):
For pickups at one of our Brooklyn or Cambridge locations there is an $8 charge that you’ll need to add to your cart via the very first item on the page that says “NON-MEMBERS ADD PICKUP LOCATION TO CART” and also is where you choose your pick up location. There is a $30 minimum order for these deliveries. Email us to confirm your order.
Details for Shipping via UPS (every two weeks):
For shipping via UPS in the northeast region, there is a $25 base shipping charge, which you will need to manually add to your cart by selecting the “Farm to Door” option under the first item on the ordering page (“NON-MEMBERS ADD PICKUP LOCATION TO CART). There is a $30 minimum order for these deliveries.
IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF THE NORTHEAST please expect that the actual shipping amount will come to higher than $25 and we will need to bill you for the additional shipping cost. The $25 charge is for shipping via UPS Ground, which is generally 2 days in the northeast / new england area. Due to the fragility of fresh herbs we will not ship outside the northeast except with expedited shipping, which generally comes to $60+. If you live outside the region, please expect that your actual shipping charges will be $60+ and do not order unless you are prepared to pay for shipping.
UPS Ground generally takes two days to arrive, however it is not guaranteed by UPS and we do not offer refunds on herbs or shipping if shipment takes longer than expected. Please consider this before placing an order and email us with questions.
All orders NEED to be placed by Sunday evening prior to delivery week. Please email us to confirm your order as well as to confirm your shipping address. We will use the address provided when you placed the order as a default if we don’t hear otherwise.
Details for picking up at Sawmill Herb Farm – Wednesdays (every two weeks)
Place your order by the Sunday evening prior to pickup on the following wednesday. Email us to confirm after placing your order.
Check out the calendar below for dates. Orders should be placed between Wednesday and Sunday of the week prior to the week of pick up or delivery. This is because our availability list is updated on Wednesdays. For example, if you are picking up in Brooklyn or Cambridge, or getting your ordered shipped via UPS, look at the calendar to find the appropriate week to order. On the calendar you can see that Thursday June 10th is a pick up day for those sites, and therefore you’d need to order between Wednesday June 2 and Sunday June 6 to make it for the delivery week. If there are any questions about your order its better to order by Friday so that we have time to communicate with you regarding any issues.
