Herbs & Spices by Chickadee Farms

We are proud to offer you the best handcrafted culinary herbs. These are fresh, dried herbs with a rich, natural colour and full fragrance. These herbs have been grown in a small local garden or ethically wildcrafted in the surrounding boreal forest.

Chickadee Farm is a second generation, small family farm that strives for sustainable organic stewardship of the land in harmony with the forest around us.

Organic Sweet Basil 

We take great care with our basil to dry it as green as possible. This way it retains as much flavor as possible and is just as good as fresh basil. We enjoy adding dried basil leaves to scrambled eggs and many other dishes. Basil is also reported to have antioxidant properties.

Organic English Thyme  

English Thyme has several other names including common, garden German or winter thyme. English Thyme has a minty, clove, peppery flavor that slightly sweeter and less subtle than French Thyme. Unless your recipe is distinctly French it is probably looking for English Thyme. English Thyme is good for seasoning meats, fish and poultry but also adds flavour soups and vegetables. 

Organic Greek Oregano

Oregano is a member of the mint family and has much stronger flavor than marjoram, a close relation. Oregano has a peppery slightly bitter flavour which goes well with other strong flavored foods and of course in pasta sauce and pizza sauce. It has even been known to make a peppery tea for many ailments.

Italian Blend

Beautiful blend of our Sweet Basil, English Thyme, Sweet Marjoram, Greek Oregano, and Summer Savory. Our own Italian blend with only our herbs for a truly Alberta Italian blend. Tastes great in pasta sauce and pizza sauce.

Organic Dill Leaf

Dill Leaf, dried it is a very aromatic herb with a hint of celery, anise, and bright grassy notes to its flavour. It can be used in salmon and other fish dishes. We harvest our dill as many as 4 times in late July early August before the plants start to set seed.

Savoury Herbs Blend 

A blend of 6 herbs: Parsley, Celery Leaf, English Thyme, Leek, Sweet Marjoram & Garden Sage.

This is an original culinary herb blend that was developed by Grandma Chickadee after a culinary blend that she used often in her cooking. The flavour is built on celery leaf and leek, combined with parsley for colour (and flavour) and complimented by sage, thyme, marjoram. It is excellent where ever your dish needs a little something special, especially tasty in soups, stews and gravies.
