Experience seasonal wellness with fresh, locally-grown healing plants.
We understand how challenging it is to find high quality ingredients for your projects. Why spend all that time and money making medicine from lifeless dried herbs you buy online and not use the best ingredients? Save money and boost your health by making your own medicine and food at home with the freshest ingredients possible. That immune syrup you’ve been buying at the store for $20 a bottle? As a CSA member you have access to all of the ingredients you need – why not try making it yourself with elecampane root, thyme, mullein leaf and elder flower?
After a season with us your pantry will be full of homemade teas, tinctures, oils, salves, vinegars and dried herbs for cooking!
New to using herbs? Before every share we send out an e-newsletter with info about the herbs, recipes and other resources to help you make the most of your share. Many of our members return year after year as they expand their apothecaries and pantries.
Our fresh herb shares are composed of a diverse assortment of fresh medicinal and culinary herbs ready for home use. From roots to shoots to leaves and flowers, we grow an ever diversifying variety of herbs using sustainable and certified organic practices on our land in Florence or are respectfully wild-harvested in our area’s fields, forests, hills and valleys.

“I was impressed by the diversity of herbs offered in Sawmill’s fresh herb share. I was able to get plenty of the staple herbs I use all year long and try herbs I’d never used before. This share finally justified my purchase of a dehydrator, which I’m thrilled to be using. With a busy schedule, having the fresh herb share from Sawmill allowed me the pleasure of processing my own herbs without the time commitment of finding time to forage or grow it myself.” – Abby , CSA member since 2015
“I joined the CSA because I wanted access to sustainably harvested fresh plant matter. I live in NYC, so growing herbs and/or wild harvesting requires some things I don’t have easy access to—like clean dirt or car transportation. Sawmill made it possible to use fresh plants, which is great!” – CSA member, 2018
“I started a class in herbalism, and the CSA was the perfect opportunity to work with a large number of herbs.” – CSA member, 2018
We grow over 80 different varieties of herbs – plants drawn from all corners of the globe and stemming from many ancient systems of healing.
