Flax Project

$5.00

Help us grow our Kneehigh Flax Field!

This first flax field will be our chance to get familiar with the plants and see how they thrive in our locale. We’re excited to learn how the local bees, pollinators, and other beneficial insects take to the flax flowers and help bolster the farm crops. And of course, we look forward to reaping a bountiful harvest!

This is a true community undertaking and we're thrilled to invite all of you to join us in supporting our Pennsylvania flax field!

Read more about this project on our blog.

We have lots of ways for you to celebrate, learn and get your hands in the soil.
