Fresh Herbs --- Available in Season from Eastern Ontario

Fresh herbs freshly cut from pots growing on window sills, purchased from FarmGates, Grocery Stores or Farmers' Markets and used in food preparation are far superior than the herbs that are purchased dry.

Just take a leaf from the plant, rub it gently between your fingers and the experience of the aroma  on your fingers is just wonderful.

Fresh Basil

Freshly picked Herbs "right from the plant"

Yes, they are grown in Eastern Ontario and
They can't get any fresher!
