Our fresh dried herbs are offered in 1 ounce, half pound and one pound bags. While we hate the use of plastic and I always try to avoid it, we will ship your herbs to you in plastic bags. Rest assured the herbs while here at the farm are stored in glass containers inside a wooden cupboard. Only when they are ordered are they put into the plastic bags for shipping. I urge you to transfer them back to glass as soon as you can. I do this to cut down on the shipping costs to you. Glass is heavy and tins can be expensive and costs would far out weight the small risk of contamination if the herbs are in plastic for a day or two.
