The Plants

Annual and perennial herbs and fruit tress round out our gardens and pastures at Fledgling Farmstead. Some we have introduced, and some we have been blessed to inherit from the green thumbs of previous owners of the property. In addition to being harvested as food and medicine for our farmstead community, these plants add beauty and biodiversity to the landscape.

We offer a wide array of culinary herbs in our CSA, including chives, parsley, cilantro, dill, and basil. We also grow culinary sage, oregano, marjoram, thyme, mints, and some more unique culinary plants including lovage, sorrel, nettles, and edible flowers.


We sell fresh herbal pestos and chutnies, fire cider, salves, and other seasonal herbal creations through our CSA and farmers market locations. You can also find the occasional bouquet offered as a CSA add-on or freshly arranged for the farmers market. 

In the late summer and fall, we are blessed with an abundance of black currants, blueberries, plums, pears and apples that are included in our CSA. 

We also grow annual and perennial plant starts for sale in the spring. In addition to our second annual, on-farm plant sale, we are excited to be offering our plant starts at the Crossmolina Farm's Cookeville farm store in May 2022.

While we are not certified organic, we cultivate and wild craft according to organic principles. We manage the bulk of our gardens in a French intensive format with low-till beds fertilized from the manure produced by the animals on the farm. We use organic quality potting soil, organic seeds whever possible, and never the use pesticides or other harmful chemicals that would impact the quality or safety of plants used as food or medicine. We have found that the cost of official organic certification just doesn't make sense at this time for our small-scale farmstead; if you ever have any questions about our growing practices, just ask!
