<p class="bodycopy"><span lang="EN-US">One of the greatest joys we have at The Organic Box is when we come across a producer that is going above and beyond to make or grow an excellent product that rivals an existing mass-produced product.&#160; Chickadee Farm Herbs and loose herbals teas are exactly that.&#160; </span></p> <p class="bodycopy"><span lang="EN-US">Elizabeth, Eckhardt and their family, younger (their daughter) and older (their parents), have cultivated a working herb and herbal tea farm that operates off the grid near Flatbush, Alberta.&#160; Their farming techniques employ permaculture principles that result in a high-quality, flavourful herb or tea.&#160; Some of their herbal tea blends include wildcrafted products foraged from the forests that surround their farm.</span></p> <p class="bodycopy"><span lang="EN-US">All of their products are hand-harvested and dried on-site using a method that they developed to best preserve the flavours of the plants they took such care to grow.</span></p> <p class="bodycopy">Chickadee Farm is probably best known for their high-quality loose leaf teas, but gaining in popularity is their line of culinary herbs such as: French Thyme, Sweet Basil, Dried Garden Sage, Summer Savory, Greek Oregano and Parsley Flakes.&#160; Check out The Organic Market for a complete listing of herbs that can be added to your next box.</p> <p class="bodycopy">&#160;Herbs are staples of anyone&#8217;s kitchen and given that we have found such an excellent supplier, there is no reason not to stock shelves with these lovely local herbs!</p> <p class="bodycopy">Stay updated about the happenings at Chickadee Farm <a href="http://www.chickadeefarmherbs.ca/" target="_blank">here</a>.</p>
