Herbs and Honey
Beautify your life with a subscription service of local herbs,
flowers, essential oils and teas.

meal kits and subscription
ser vices, farm shares and
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
memberships. But what Nancy Maurelli is
offering borrows from all these concepts
and packs it into one glorious delivery.
What if each week you could swing by
your prearranged pickup place and head
home with farm-grown flowers, a bouquet
of herbs, a jar of local honey, a vial of
essential oil (made by Maurelli) and/or an
herb-infused tea? You'd feel like the most
pampered patron on the planet, right?
Well, you can. Maurelli is signing folks
up for her unique deliveries. It's $30 a box,
with a two box minimum. The price drops
the more months you sign on for.
"Plants are really multidimensional," says
Maurelli. "I have a strong interest in using
them for health, nutrition and body care."

Three years ago, Maurelli-who has
held an impressive collection of culinary
jobs: grower, teacher, forager, chef-bought
two acres near Montvale, in Bedford
County. After decades of "harvesting
weeds," she determined she wanted to
cultivate an herb farm.
Just months after taking ownership of
Goose Creek Gardens, she offered her first
herb and flower delivery.
Each box is inspired by what is growing
on Maurelli's land. She sends an email to
customers with descriptions of included
items and ideas for how to use them.
"I call it developing a relationship with
the plants," she says.
For more information, email
nancymaurelli@gmail.com. Or head to the
Grandin Road Farmers Market. Maurelli is
a vendor every other Saturday. I
