If you are in the market for fresh yarrow, hyssop or wormwood, send us a message for pricing. We have it for sale! Will harvest to order.
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 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.

Just a heads up, Mo will be attending and teaching at the 10th annual Gaia Women’s Gathering this May 5-7 at Camp Albermarle outside of Charlottesville, VA.
There will be many teachers and vendors at this event.
Mo will be teaching a Know Your Rights workshop and a Prisons, PTSD, and Herbalism workshop.
“For over a decade the Gaia Gathering for Women has been a space where the women of our region can come together to learn, strengthen community connections and be deeply nourished in many ways. Classes in herbalism and holistic living are taught by a fruitful array of gifted teachers witha wide range of topics to support healing and connection. This year we are honored to feature renowned herbalist and author Deb Soule of Avena Botanicals. Deliciously healthy, organic food with gluten free options and the joyful singing and drumming of our Saturday night Beltane celebration are also integral parts of the gathering. Our event is held just north of Charlottesville at the lush and beautiful Camp Albemarle, a retreat space on the banks of the Moorman River. With a bounty of native plants and green space for camping and contemplation the camp continues to be a wonderful setting for the Gathering. We hope joining us will become a spring tradition in your self-care tool kit as it for many of us and we look forward to welcoming you at the gathering!” – from the event page
