Resource list of a few of Virginia’s favorite herb companies to mail order from, and also some local storefronts in Western Ma. This is not an all-inclusive list. There are many wonderful small organic herb farms. This list will be expanded.
Herbalist and Alchemist and HerbPharm are my two favorite places to buy tinctures, which are the liquid form of the herb in little brown bottles. You will need to inquire about whether individual customers can order directly. Both are sold in many retail health food stores:
Herbalist and Alchemist
Organic high quality tinctures, glycerin based tinctures
High quality herb tinctures
Dried herbs for high quality medicinal teas:
Small family herb farm, organic, high quality dried, fresh herbs and tinctures. The owners are often at herb conferences. Mail order available.
Organic dried herbs-small and large quantities available, many other products such as oils, natural pet supplies
