Sonoma County Herb Exchange

        Preserving agricultural biodiversity and enriching community and land health by fostering support for organic herb growers and medicine makers through marketing and educational forums.

            The Sonoma County Herb Exchange

       is located at 1720 Cooper Road in Sebastopol.

The season for fresh herbs is mid-March – mid December.

We are open from 2-5pm on Tuesdays from mid-March through mid-December, otherwise by appointment.

      We are a first request first provide venue.

So herbs are offered in the order in which they have been requested. If you know what your herbal needs are for the season, it is best to put in a pre-order. You are welcome to update that order throughout the season.

 

Fresh herbs are cut to order and delivered on Tuesday mornings. We ask a minimum amount of 1/2 lb per fresh cut herb.

Herbs are available for pick up or shipping on Tuesday afternoons from 2-5, or other days by arrangement, but fresh herbs are only brought in fresh on Tuesdays.

 

We are available by phone on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Since we are open for sales on Tuesdays, we tend to run short on time for phone conversations on that day unless you are calling about fresh herbs that are being offered on consignment that day. Otherwise please send us an email.

Our phone number is 707-824-1447 and our email address is herbexch@sonic.net

We look forward to collaborating with you for your herbal needs.

WHO WE ARE

Welcome to the Sonoma County Herb Exchange. We invite you to celebrate the seasonality of herb growing with us! We are a locally-focused clearinghouse, supplied by a diverse network of dedicated herb growers from Sonoma County and adjoining regions of Northern California. This allows us to offer you a broad availability of fresh herbs throughout the year. Our growers share our dedication to sustainable, ecologically friendly growing practices. All follow organic methods; some are certified and some are not. Please specify if you require certified organic herbs. We specialize in fresh, hand-harvested, top quality, whole herbs and roots, often harvested the day we sell them. Our prices reflect the costs of small-scale, attentive, non-mechanized farming. We think you’ll agree that there is good value in supporting sustainable agriculture and small, dedicated growers. We welcome your comments and suggestions, as well as referrals to prospective buyers and growers.

 

ORDERING

Our pick-up days are Tuesday afternoons at Laguna Farm (1720 Cooper Rd.) in Sebastopol. Please call or email your order by the Wednesday preceding your Tuesday pick-up. Payment (cash or check) is due when you pick up your herbs. Shipping is generally available with an additional handling charge. Please check the availability column in the catalog to make sure the fresh herb you want is in season! Note that weather and other variables may affect availability, so use this information as a guideline only. Sometimes backorders will be necessary. Prices are subject to change. If you don’t see what you want here, please ask. If one part of an herb is listed, chances are we will be able to provide another. For example, if an herb is listed as “whole plant,” you may be able to purchase roots and leaves separately, please inquire. Also, medicinal potency changes as plants mature - please specify your preferences.

We offer a monthly fresh herb email for seasonally available medicinal herbs. You can sign up to receive the monthly fresh herbal announcements at the link on this page.

With great gratitude for the medicine you bring to the day.
