2022 Harvest: Organic Lemon Balm, Melissa officinalis, Sustainable Farm Grown Herb Medicine
We are a small-scale producer of culinary and medicinal herbs. All herbs are grown on our certified organic farm in British Columbia and are hand harvested, dried, and packaged on site in a dedicated approved facility. Our products are picked at their peak and dried in small batches to retain shape and flavour.
Our farm also uses regenerative farming practices, such as using animals (goats, sheep, pigs) to maintain and prepare new beds. This ensures that not only are we organic, but no heavy machinery ever touches the soil, and we maintain a healthy soil ecosystem.

“Lemon balm brings comfort against despair and melancholy. And since illness always brings a measure of sadness, I turn to this herb to heal both spirit and body. Medicinally, the leaves are cooling: They reduce fevers, soothe bruises and aches, heal wounds, calm nervous stomachs, and help heal sores from herpes viruses.” (Wardwell, Joyce. Herbal Home Remedy Book. Storey Publishing, 1998.)
