New this year: U-Pick and Flower and Herb CSA
(Community Supported Agriculture)
Four Winds Farm is offering an opportunity for you and your family to pick a broad variety of beautiful flowers and fresh herbs, weekly, for a really low price or $75! Both flower and herb selections will vary through-out the growing
season. Cutting flowers will be planted all around the front herb garden, also near the farm market. PLUS for kids and adventure seekers (like Deborah), there will be a flower path to the back sensory gardens including the pollinator garden, fairy garden, tea garden and more. Each week an email will show photos and locations for the many flowers and herbs to collect. A few herbal recipes and tips will also be included for the 17 weeks. Scissors and sizing-containers will be set out to make for easy harvesting.
