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.
Registration is OPEN for 2015 classes of FROM THE ROOTS UP! This year we've added a summer session, in addition to the spring and fall!
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!
