How we do this.
From our farms, we harvest herbs, fruits and bee products.
We process them and blend them based on specific health needs to create solutions that you can include in your daily life.
We have teabags, powders and honey. Soon we will add capsules. Each is unique to you. Here are our products:
Lets replace processed sugar with stevia; take teabags to prevent or manage specific chronic diseases; take herb seeds for their super benefits; or simply lick herb infused honey. This is what we do. We take each plant and combine it with its friends to make something unique for you.
Remember, each herb is unique and has desirable benefits for you.
Stevia is a plant known to be 200 times sweeter than sugar. A teaspoon of sugar is equivalent to half a cup of processed sugar. Quite a wonder.
We have farmers who grow this, we secure it dried and blend with a fer herbs to make its taste mild and allow you to have a herbal powder you can use as a sugar substitute.
Our honey is also processed to retain its natural healing properties with added herbs. The combination of these two allow you to eliminate the need for processed sugar in your beverages, cooking and almost all meals.
