Teas Now Available from InfiniTea Farm!
InfiniTea Farm specializes in growing, processing and drying herbal tea, culinary herbs and specialty vegetables. Cari Conari expresses a love of herbs, and seeks to inspire others to connect to natural plant medicine. Cari has been studying herbs for 15 years, constantly learning new varieties and uses. Beginning as an urban gardener in Denver, in search of self-healing. In 2015 she moved to the San Luis Valley to homestead and learn from local farmers. In addition to farming, Cari is a painter and creative builder. InfiniTea Farm uses farmland through the Rio Grande Farm Park Incubator Commercial Farmer COOP, as well as some perennial and permaculture-oriented herbal gardens. The farm is dedicated to educating people about the benefits of herbalism and eating healthy locally sourced foods, and connecting people to other farmers in the San Luis Valley network. Through drought tolerant planting, composting and many regenerative soil practices, the herbs continue to flourish. At the Rio Grande Farm park we use organic practices, never using chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Cari began micro-farming in 2016 at the Rio Grande Farm Park in Alamosa, Colorado, now caring for over ¼ acre, as well as growing perennials on private land. We offer fresh herbal bundles unique to each season. Some herbs that we grow include calendula, mint, lemon balm, echinacea, bee balm, anise hyssop agastache, garlic, basil, holy basil, chamomile, dill, cilantro, as well as kale, chard greens, and lettuce. InfiniTea Farm also provides tea catering services for events.
