Hey Yall! We are also selling ethically wildcrafted yarrow. We are harvesting from a place of great abundance, and saving the plants from the bushhog. We are selling aerial parts for $10 a pound fresh and $12 a pound dried (dried not yet available). Please support a local farm and local herbalist! Yarrow is a great astringent, diaphoretic, tonic, and even sedative plant. Please email mokarnage @ gmail.com if you want to buy yarrow
Our Oats, Avena Sativa, are in their milky stage and ready to harvest. We have two large patches about 15 x 20 each. We will be tincturing fresh a bunch for ourselves. That is our preffered method for this plant. However we will also be drying the milky oats we do not tincture.
If you want to purchase fresh milky oats by the pound (we are still working out pricing) please email mokarnage @ gmail.com or text 804 300-0023 asap!!!!! We anticipate starting the harvest tomorrow evening Sunday June 11. If you want to tincture your own fresh you would need to pickup Sunday evening or from us Monday in Churchill.

We will traipse through field and forest identifying and discussing 15+ plants. Learn more about the healing and energetic properties of plants in our area!
