This month is crazy busy month for the farmers at Twee. We are upping the ante to provide our products to as many people as possible before we hibernate for the winter.
Tweefontein is at FOUR New York City markets a week!
Find us at Union Square Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, located by the Christmas Market (a pretty cool thing to check out if you haven’t).
On Sundays we are at the Jackson Heights Queens market (33rd and 78th). We went once due to the hurricane and now we’re back for more, every Sunday. The community at Jackson Heights rocks! Thank you for all of your warm welcomes and appreciation for our hot tea and herbal products. You make us feel at home.
Twee will be attending other holiday fairs such as Frozendale on Saturday December 15th behind the Big Cheese on Main Street, Rosendale.
On December 22nd, a Saturday evening, 5pm-midnight, come check out the Brooklyn Night Bazaar (bkbazaar.com) a sweet night time market with lots of vendors, art, music, and food. The line up for that event includes Tweefontein Certified Herbalist AnnMarie with her line of Infinite Roots herbal products like teas, spices, and smoking blends, Ustya of Clove Valley farm with her Medicine Garden products like her amazing body creams, AC reppin’ Twee, and Alex of Hugeunot Farm to work the table. Four strong, healing farm women under one tent…hope Brooklyn’s ready for us.
New products this month too!
-Lavender Massage oil, great for relaxation, headache relief, and as a mild perfume.
-Decongestant Rub with eucalyptus, rosemary, and peppermint essential oil that is meant to relieve stuffy noses and congested sinuses by dabbing it on the upper chest or adding it to a pot of hot water to use as a steam.
-Pain Relief Salve
We are especially proud to announce our creation of a Pain Relief Salve, a product many of our customers have requested. The salve is a blend of coconut oil, olive oil, beeswax, St. Johnswort , Yarrow, Arnica, Cayenne, and Essential Oil of Clove and Cinnamon, and of course, love. All ingredients are either organic or Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) like all of our products. The Pain Relief Salve is excellent for sore muscles, circulation, joint pain, bruises, and soft tissue repair. It is great for massage. It’s not meant for sensitive skin. It has a subtle scent, so the salve will not be overpowering if you want to use it throughout the day. It has been working great for the Twee farmers and has been selling out at markets so far with repeat customers coming back looking for more.
Tweefontein products can be found locally in the Hudson Valley at:
-Heavenly Scents in the Waterstreet Market, New Paltz, NY
-Health and Nutrition Grocer in the Stop and Shop Plaza, New Paltz, NY
-Benmarl Winery in Marlboro, NY
-and straight from the source of course at Tweefontein Herb Farm, 4 Jenkins Lane, New Paltz, NY.
The farmers at Twee hope that our friends, family, and beloved customers will enjoy this December to Remember. If you miss us at markets this month, don’t worry, we’ll still be on the interwebs and we’ll be back in the spring.
