Edible Landscaping!

Edible Landscaping
With the weather warming up, it's time to start thinking about your home garden.  This year why not plant a few easy to grow herbs for teas and medicinals!  Here are some suggestions:
1.  Feverfew:  Beautiful plant with adorable white flowers.  Leaves and flowers can be dried and used as a tea to relieve headaches and migraines.
2.  Lemonbalm:  Relative of the mint family, so keep it in a container!  Amazing lime green serrated leaves can be used fresh or dried in teas, fresh in salads, or used to make antiseptic salve which is great for cold sores!  Delightful lemon taste.
3.  Calendula:  Relative of the marigold family.  Large bright orange petals are edible and lovely fresh in salads.  Dried it's added to tea for a soothing healing affect for stomach issues, especially irritable bowel syndrom (IBS).  Fresh can be applied to wounds and cuts, including open ones, to help heal the skin.
4.  Sage:  Besides it's culinary uses (fresh or dried) sage makes a wonderful soothing tea.  Dried sage can be burned for meditation or metaphysical use.  Flowers are also edible.
5.  Borage:  Borage is a beautiful plant with fury leaves that can be cut up into salads for a crisp cucumber taste, or added to sunteas.  The flowers are a beautiful purple blue and look like shooting stars and are lovely in salads.
Make your garden beautiful, edible, and useful this year!

Owens Acres is now CCOF Organic Certified!

Just wanted to let everyone know we got our organic certification!

Owens Acres Announces new CSA!

Owens Acres announces new CSA offerings for 2009.  Pickup will be in Placerville, 1st Sunday of the month.  We hope to expand our box offerings to include what's being harvested (tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, etc.) but we want to wait a few more weeks to see how the crops fare.

No minimum subscription required, you can sign up on our website and place an order.  We hope you'll enjoy visit our small farm - bring the kids to feed the goats (they love apples), pet the donkey, and run around!  Only 5 mins. from downtown Placerville, just past Gold Bug Park.

For questions regarding the CSA's please email or call.

Alternatively, you can pick up your order at the Placerville Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings if that is easier.

Just a note to our customers, we have applied for CCOF certification and are just waiting to hear aye/nay!  We'll keep you posted!


Check out our sales items!

Just wanted to know we understand the financial crunch just like you do!  We will try to have a few discounts on popular items from time to time - so when you see them - stock up! 

If you have a suggestion for a herbal product, please let us know - most of our products are developed from suggestions of friends, family, and customers, so speak up, we want to hear what you have to say.

Peace be with you - Owens Acres
