Zero Waste

Zero Waste

Three years ago, we embarked on our Zero Waste journey, inspired by Bea Johnson’s book. It took us a full year to change our habits, to find replacements for disposable items, and to buy bulk products using our own containers. We are ~95% there!

We use truck loads of mulch delivered by local tree companies!

We cover the paths in the farm with burlap sacks from a local coffee roaster.

We make our own compost from all yard waste.

Our chickens devour all the kitchen scraps, converting them into eggs!

We made a commitment to use only recyclable glass and metal for our products. The only plastic is sprayer/pump tops for some of the products. Please keep refilling and reusing these bottles to reduce your environmental impact.

All the labels are made from 100% recycled paper.

We take return bottles from local customers. But the bottles are adorable… so why not reuse them? Soak in water for 10 minutes, and the labels come right off.


Retail. When we ship directly to our online retail customers, we use ONLY PAPER: the only exception is the Elderberry Syrup insulated envelopes (which we collect from customers and re-use to ship to you).

Wholesale. We re-use packaging materials we get from our local retailers + we save the boxes and fillers when we buy our bottles + our like-minded friends/customers collect and give us packaging materials: long story short, we re-use packaging materials to ship our products to wholesalers. Some of these are plastic and some are paper.


We ship by USPS Priority so you will receive your order 1-2 days depending on where you are in the US.
