Know Your Farmer: Creekside Farms

Creekside Farms Family
The leaves have turned, the air is crisp and we can almost smell Thanksgiving dinner in the air. With the holidays right around the corner, many of us are looking for simple ways to add that warm and cozy feeling to our homes. The addition of a wreath to the family door is often the tell-tale sign that the holidays are upon us. And this year, our family will be hanging a beautiful, artisan wreath from Creekside Farms on our door.

For more than 30 years, the Umbarger family has owned and operated Creekside Farms.  They pride themselves on growing their floral bounty naturally without the use of harmful pesticides.  In addition, they believe in taking the extra time and care to hand-harvest their herbs and flowers.

Located in California’s Monterey County, the warm climate is ideal for growing and drying herbs and flowers. All of their flowers and herbs are naturally air dried, although a drying chamber is used in the later months when the days are shorter and the temperatures aren’t sufficient to dry the herbs.
