Our Location

Located only 45-60 minutes from Harrisburg, Chambersburg, Shippensburg or Carlisle, our 22 acre property offers serenity, fun and an educational experience for those of all ages and interests. The majority of the herbs utilized in all the products are grown and harvested here. The plants available for sale have been either naturally growing or populated on this property.

 

Our Story

Plants have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. A few years after this property was purchased, the house was built and the vision of building gardens with colorful shrubs, herbs, fruits and vegetable came to life. Throughout the years more and more herbs were added, harvested, utilized and introduced to friends and visitors. At their insistence, a few herbal products were produced in small batches and offered for sale. I came to realize that knowing and utilizing herbs had become a lost art which needed to be reintroduced. Thus sharing my passion and herbal knowledge in classes, workshops and at farmers markets started to fulfill this need.

In 2017 the Lower-Level Suite of the house was opened on Airbnb. It offers space for families and groups to enjoy overnight accommodations in the country along with those who are attending scheduled retreats or private functions. The large pavilion and enclosed pole barn offer additional space for classes, activities, and events. The addition of the Tiny House and Cabin increased the indoor overnight accommodations available. Camping is available at 5 sites in the woods or in the field. Outdoor toilet and shower facilities are available along with a bonfire area at the far end of the pond. In the fall of 2022 a large area of the field that has been leveled will be ready to use as a sports playing field or to accommodate a large tent for a private event.

We take pride in sharing the grounding and balancing properties this area has to offer with you.
