Our Friendly Allies

Welcome

Our Friendly Allies was established in 2015. The spring of 2016 was the start of our first year growing medicinal herbs. We are a small family farm located just outside Asheville, North Carolina in Marshall. Our passion is offering the highest quality, organically grown, local, medicinal herbs. Our goals include working toward establishing our farm as an organism. Anything we take from the earth we want to offer more in return. We are working on making our farm as sustainable as possible, heading in a biodynamic direction. We have organic practices and will also be working on becoming certified organic. We want to offer locally grown medicinal herbs to those who want to grow their own medicine and to those who want to make medicine out of our fresh and dried products. In the future we hope to offer classes and workshops on making medicinal products as well as how to grow these plant friends. We are determined to build a relationship not only with our plants but also with the herbalists who are making the magic out of them. 

We have dreamed of having a medicinal herb farm for a long time. We finally did it! 2016 was our first year producing herbs. We have been farming for many years growing organic food on many different farms. For the last few years I have had the dream of growing my own herbal medicine and sharing it with our community. It has taken a lot of processing and planning to get to where we are. Step one, was finding land to farm on that we could afford. Spring of 2015 we bought this farm. We are excited to learn and grow here. Though as many farmers know starting out on an old farm takes many years to get going. We are excited to provide the areas around Marshall, NC with high quality locally grown medicinal herbs. Starting out as an herbalist a few years ago there was not a medicinal herb farm selling herbs locally. So I had to order herbs from across the country to fulfill my needs of making medicine. Which seems so silly when most of these medicinal herbs grow great in this area. I also knew how much more potent medicinal herbs were if sourced within your region. Within these thoughts became a dream. Now, here we are; learning about and growing these medicinal friends and we are now ready to provide our area with strong, loved, potent, fresh and dried herbs for your medicine making needs.
