Milk & Honey Herbs is a small, diversified, family-owned farm and business in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts.
We believe that community health and ecological health are intrinsically connected and hope that Milk & Honey Herbs positively contributes to both.
It's time to register for the Summer and Fall sessions of FROM THE ROOTS UP! This course meets outside and in the field and explores bioregional herbalism, medicine-making, materia medica, creating intimacy with the local flora, and plant ID.
The GREENFIELD COMMUNITY HERBAL CLINIC is going strong. Every Friday from 12-7 pm I offer herbal low-cost herbal consults on a walk-in basis and by appointment (encouraged!). The consults are sliding scale- those who can pay higher on the scale help support those who cannot, and together we create a mutually supported community of healing. ALL are WELCOME!
