    I purchase both the Certified organic and Organically grown to see if there is a difference. Well, there is! The organically grown is so fresh and smells beautiful. If you close your eyes, you would think you are were standing in the middle of a rose garden. The color is so vibrant compared to the C/O. I'm buying your organically grown herbs from now on!

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2016

    I had the pleasure of being invited to the beautiful little farmstead. If I could post pictures on this review I would. The calendula, Lavender, Roses, Red Raspberry...I could go on and on...It's beautiful and all cultivated without pesticides! It's amazing what this woman does with "companion plants" No pests in her gardens and they are BEAUTIFUL!She showed us how she harvests and shade dries these beautiful flowers. Its amazing and I just cant get over the colors! Buy from this store, its worth it!

  10. These roses are AWESOME! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Mar 2016

    I had the pleasure of visiting this little farm last summer during their harvest of these little roses It was amazing and I couldn't believe that herbs could be grown without using pesticides to keep bugs from eating your plants. The time spent picking each flower by hand and then learning about the process of how to dry herbs naturally so that they maintain their fragrance and color. What a learning experience!

    I learned so much about companion planting and will be using it this year in my garden instead of spraying poisons. Patricia's knowledge and cultivation practices are superior and I would recommend that you purchase herbs from this shop and if at all possible, throw your certified organic herbs out the window and buy organically grown from this shop! These roses are AWESOME!
