One of our favorite things ever, being herbalists and farmers is of course new plants! Yesterday, in the rain, David planted 2 rose bushes, 2 elderberry bushes, 2 blueberry bushes, and 2 red passionflower plants!!! Aside from being great for pollinators, these plants are great to eat and make tea/tincture/syrup and other herbal treats from!!! We won’t likely harvest from these perennials this year, but will nurture them so they become strong and abundant enough for us to harvest from in years to come. Our farm practice isn’t one of instant gratification, but one of slow, mindful growth.
We had the chance this week to process some milky oats tincture we started last summer. We made it with fresh milky oats we grew.
Avena Sativa, harvested when the oat pods are producing a milky fluid, is a very powerful nutritious nervine. We also sell tea made with dried Milky oats.
We are now selling dried milky oats tops, oatstraw, and yarrow.
milky Oats tops, harvested during the milky stage and dried in screens are $24.00 a pound. It is a labor intensive harvest and timing is critical.
We grew the oats ourselves on our farm here in Beaverdam. Avena Sativa is a soothing nervine that is supportive for folks dealing with stress and anxiety.
Oatstraw is $13.00 a pound and wonderful to add into any tea blend.
We harvested the yarrow from our family’s field in Hanover when it was about to be bush hogged. So it is wild harvested, but ethically. Achillea Millefolium is a wonderful bitter plant that can be used topically or internally. It is said that Achilles and his soldiers used Yarrow to treat wounds, and that soldiers in the Civil War carried the dried leaves in pouches to apply to wounds as well.
The yarrow is $12.00 a pound.
