Steubenville Nutcracker Village & Advent Market

  I am a little behind on getting this added, but for the next 3 weekends thru December 17th on Saturdays (3-8 pm) & Sundays (1-6 pm) I will be at the Steubenville Nutcracker Village & Advent Market!  Come stroll the grounds of Fort Steuben.  There are over 150 nutcrackers for you to see!!  Tell the little ones they are very colorful toy soldiers!!  Music!  Food!  Vendors!  A great family event that everyone can enjoy!

Tins or Pouches? And how teas will be shipped at this time…

This fall I decided to try pouches along with my original tins to package my teas.  I received a lot of good feedback at Christmas in the Woods on the pouches, but a lot of people still like my tins!  Since my current inventory includes some teas in just the pouches and some in just the tins I will be shipping according to availability at this time.  Both packages include the same amount of tea per ounce.  Same 20-30 servings.  Eventually, I will be offering both the pouches & tins so you can choose your preference.  I have had some customers tell me they like the tins, and will save them so they can order the pouches to refill the tins.  Great idea!!  But for now, so I can insure freshness, I need to ship what I have on hand until I reduce what I have in stock.  Thank you for understanding!!

P.S.- If you really have a preference leave me a note in the comment section and I will do my best to ship the packaging you prefer.

Welcome!!

Hello!!  Welcome to the new and updated CCH (Crooked Creek Herbals) website!!  I am thrilled with how it turned out!!  It looks better than I had hoped or dreamed.  I still need to redo some of the product pictures, and I am hoping to have them all uploaded by next week.

So this is where I give a shout out to my website designer rock star Alison!!!!  She took all my thoughts & ideas & PATIENTLY transformed them into this new & beautiful site. I have a tendency to be pretty particular about the dumbest of things, and I don’t know a whole lot about web design.  Okay, I know nothing about web design!  So Alison asked questions.  She made suggestions.  And she taught me a lot!!   She also re-did and updated the website for my husband’s business too!  Take a peek at Bob’s website @ rjsbuildingsys.com so you can see more of Alison’s creative genius.  Bob’s business is on a different spectrum than mine because he builds post frame buildings, and Alison made both of our websites look amazing!!  So if you need a website designer with LOTS OF TALENT  I truly recommend Alison!!  You can reach her @ alisonaf.com!!

So now that I have this new website I have the capability of blogging!  Yikes!!  I am not a writer!!  I like to get my hands dirty, and grow things.  I like blending, brewing and enjoying tea and making other herbal goodies.  Writing is second in line behind public speaking when it comes to dislikes for this gal.  But I did overcome that first public speaking hurdle a couple of weeks ago, so here’s to blogging!!  So in the future, you can expect me to ramble on about what’s happening around the farm, product updates, events I will be attending,  herbal tidbits, natural wellness info, and other random thoughts and musings.  Hope you enjoy what I share!!

Would love to hear what you think about my new website!!

Enjoy & Be Blessed!!   Kim
