When the first week of the month rolls around all things stop so that we can ship out tea mail! What is tea mail you ask?
Some of you are probably aware, and maybe even part of our monthly tea club subscription. Every month I blend a brand new tea especially for our V.I.P. Tea Club members. This tea gets sent out in the mail along with some other goodies:
* Small Treat from Local/Small Businesses
* Sample of one of our farm store teas
* Newsletter about current month's tea and treat
This month we blended up an herbal peach tea we call Cottage Peach. Featuring locally grown Oregon peaches that we processed and dehydrated here on the farm along with some Oregon Bee Pollen from our favorite local bee keeper. We paired it with some local granola from the Sweet Peony Flour Shop and sent it off to our tea club members. This week we decided to share the behind the scenes from blending to shipping with you. The farm isn't always growing fruits, flowers and veggies, sometimes the work is in the office too. Or in this case our new tea studio! We will catch you over on Youtube! Thanks for stopping by the farm.
Oh! If you want more details on our Tea Club you may grab that here. A little insider tip... June's tea is going to feature locally grown blueberries and our treat is something super sweet and yummy! Cheers!
How many of you are growing a garden this year? How many of you have flowers in your garden? How about medicinal flowers?
We started our garden out with just things that could be eaten. It was a way to help cut down the food cost and to know the story of where our food was coming from. Which growing methods were used, where the seeds came from, the type of soil that they were growing in.
Equally important as our vegetable garden though are our medicinals that we grow as well. It's handy to also know where our medicine comes from as well.
Today we thought we would share a bit about a favorite medicinal flower that we are growing here on the farm. Bachelor Buttons also known as cornflowers are used in many of our teas but that isn't there limitation. Join us as we go over their culinary and medicinal uses!
