I am a double amputee for 40 years, but found passion in operating my own business. I left the Juice industry and started Barrs Spice as a way of bringing back Annatto (Achoite) to the forefront. In doing so, I have added a few more spices such as Tumeric powder, Jamaican Dandelion, Ginger powder and Rosemary powder.
Barrs Spice was started out of the need to keep surviving and creating a healthier alternative for food coloring and flavor. Also to impact my community and nation at large.

Winston and his family are very welcoming; from the moment you step foot unto their property, you feel safe and at home. Very knowledgeable and you can see and feel the passion and love they have for their craft: from storytelling telling, to describing the different uses of every plant, herb, and etc that they harvest and grow. Lord, do not get me started on their Annatto flavored meals (AMAZING). Really a great experience and something everyone should partake in, if ever in the st james Parrish area! Will definitely come back in the near future! They also have a variety of spices, in addition to their annatto, for sell (at reasonable prices).

This was an amazing and one-of-a-kind experience to tour Winston's farm and learn more about annatto, as well as other plants and herbs, and their many benefits. The location was absolutely breathtaking and the garden is A MUST to take photos. Mrs. Winston made us a delicious and filling meal (2nd's included) with fresh ingredients and spices from the farm. If you rent a car, this experience is a must for your to-do list.
