Keeping and Storing: Herbs and Spices

We put up a new page covering proper storage of spices, herbs, and blends. It's here: Enjoy!


What's up today at the Farm? Well, in addition to the usual chores--garden maintenance and the like--we continue preparations today for the Flea to Fab Market and Craft Show this Saturday. It's a lot of work getting these insanely good teas and herb/spice combinations blended, ground, and packaged but, when you have a passion for it as we do, it's a labor of love. We hope you think so, too. We're finishing a little work left over from yesterday--packaging teas--and starting on the spice blends this morning. The house really smells wonderful and it will only get better when we start packaging the spices. We completed "spiffing" and polishing on the booth. We were set up outside a lot of the year so, we're not being picky here, it was in need of some attention. While we were at it, we got a couple of new tablecloths and a few items to make it more "holiday." Put some big red bows on the coyote posters... Holiday cheer, eh. If you&

At the Farm

What's it like out here at Smiling Coyote Farm this time of year? We have a great view overlooking Palo Duro and Sunday Canyon. Just walking out the door is morning is inspiring... Some days more so than others. Today was one of those. It's worth sharing. This is what it's like in the morning... It's nice. Very nice out here.

Sampler Packs: Gottum

Did someone say, "sampler packs?" Yes, yes, I believe they did and the answer is, "Yes," we gottum. "What are 'sampler packs,'" you ask? Wellllllllllllll... Our herb/spice blend samplers are are perfect for small households, adventurous exploration, or just getting acquainted with our products. Each individual packet contains about one tablespoon--ample for one or two recipes, depending on size. There's an Americas Sampler (3 packets), an Asia/India Sampler (4 packets), a Mediterranean sampler (3 packets), a Holiday Sampler (3 packets), and a Mix-or-Match Sampler (as many as you want) where you get to pick your own selection (minimum 3). Nice, huh. You bet! We have a sampler with all four of our tea blends as well. Can you believe it? I know... I know! We'll have plenty at the Flea to Fab Market and Craft Show on December 12.  Read about it right here  and on Facebook . If you can't wait, order  right here  for local

Gift Boxes: Gottum

"Do you have gift boxes?" Apparently, the masses want to know. "Well, yes we gottum! Of course, we gottum!" Is the reply. And they're nice, too. Really nice. High quality, white, padded gift box with a lid. Holds three of our 2 fl. oz. glass jars or two of our 3 fl. oz. glass jars very nicely. It's your choice which herb/spice blend selection goes in the box and we can help with some recommendations if you get stuck. Try a set from the Americas: Sizzling Southwest, House Creole, and Old #18 Chili Powder, for example. You get the idea. Our teas (20 individual tea bags) already come in a nice white, high quality box so... there ya go. They're ready to go already. We'll have plenty at the Flea to Fab Market and Craft Show on December 12 and you can  read all about it right here .  But, if you just can't wait, order now for local pickup/delivery. Yes, we do that! This coyote delivers for  you
