We intend to make this website worthy of your visit, with photos, columns on all things herbal and our favorite apples, ordering information for all our farm products and books, and a posting of our speaking schedule.

Isn't this good earth a grand place to spend these precious days? And what a blessing now to count you among our friends!

Mountain Offerings

We love our wee bit of northern paradise in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Here's where we cultivate the most-in-demand herbs - milky oats, nettles, and calendula - as well as wildcraft other classic Northeastern plant medicines. (More than a few herbalists say our hawthorn blossom is the best!)

Please check what healing herbs will be available come summer harvest time. We invite you to reserve your order requests sooner rather than later so that we don't disappoint long-time customers. We offer eight varieties of hardneck garlic for seed and kitchen use, with such orders being filled beginning in September. A selection of quality tinctures, compound formulations, and family favorites can always be found in Nancy's Apothecary. Fall means it's time to harvest Lost Nation apples for local sale.

Take a Walk in The Holistic Orchard

Michael Phillips completely changed the conversation about healthy orcharding with his first bestselling book, The Apple Grower, and now he takes that dialogue even further, drawing connections between home orcharding and permaculture; the importance of native pollinators and beneficial allies; the world of understory plantings with shade-tolerant berry bushes; detailed information on cover crops and biodiversity; varietal rundowns of all the major tree fruits, and the newest research on safe, locally-inspired solutions to pest and disease challenges. The American Horticultural Society recently recognized this as an outstanding Garden Book of the Year.

"Michael Phillips's Holistic Orchard is a seminal work, to be compared with Sir Albert Howard and J.I. Rodale's classic books on soil and organic gardening. This is deep horticulture at its best, showing just how and what we must do to orchard sustainably and ecologically."

We encourage everyone to get involved further with the vital work of United Plant Savers to both honor and conserve our green friends.
