About

Wild Mountain Herb Farm

We follow the 3 permaculture ethics -

  • care for the Earth,
  • care for people
  • share the surplus

 and  permaculture practices such as design, companion planting, composting and water harvesting - slow, spread and sink.

Barbara and Tony

Barbara and Tony came up with the idea of Wild Mountain Herb Farm because of a lack of natural remedies for basic illnesses that are usually treated by chemicals. Modern medicine is geared towards treating disease with synthetic drugs. The word disease can be broken down into  two parts, 'dis' and 'ease' - the body's natural state is not at ease.


Drinking more clean water as well as a healthy diet of fresh Organic vegetables, fruits and herbs along with the use of herbal remedies that have a recorded history of over 10,000 years, can dramatically ease a lot of illnesses. Adding  regular exercise such as walking in nature, gardening and meditation can put the mind and body at 'ease' again.
