Herb Blurb

Herb blurb is more than just herbs. It is all about the plants that can be useful and the ones to watch out for. Some of these plants may be trees, bushes, or vines. The plants may be eaten, some are medicinal, some are for fiber dyeing, some useful for animals, and some are invasive or toxic and you should watch out for them. Much of the information is gathered from various sources, and combined to one description, and added our experience with the plant. Meaning, we may have not written all the material. We will link references when appropriate.

Below is an alphabetical list of plants we have on the farm growing wild, cultivate, or have/do use for various applications. Click on the links to jump to that page. If there is no link to that particular plant, it means we have it on our list but haven’t written about it yet.
