  • We are a small-scale, sustainable nursery guided by the principles of permaculture. 
  • Our 2 1/2 acre farm is home to a unique range of habitats, including open field, woodland edges, wet meadow and woodland, and mixed hardwood forest. 
  • By using permaculture principles, and also taking advantage of the naturally diverse growing preferences of medicinal plants, we have been able to grow our herbs in their ideal natural habitats, producing exceptionally healthy and medicinally potent stock.
  • Most of our offerings are hardy, field-grown stock, 2-3 year old individuals with well-developed root systems.  We sell many of our annuals by the 6-pack.  Our biennials are typically the first year plants.

Why?

Medicinal plant conservation is a poignant topic in our modern world.  Here in Massachusetts we have seen the near-extinction of many important woodland medicinals due to over-harvesting, such as American Ginseng, Goldenseal and Black Cohosh just to name a few.  Part of our mission Milk & Honey Herbs is to create a sanctuary of threatened medicinal herbs, and also offer organically and ethically grown plants (especially those on the United Plant Savers  “To Watch” and “At Risk” Lists) so that folks can create their own herb gardens at home, comunity garden plots, porches, and beyond- contributing to local and planetary biodiversity.
