Welcome to Healing Spirits
Healing Spirit Herb Farm and Education Center
Our 30 acre farm is located in the hamlet of Wallace, near Avoca, in the beautiful Finger Lakes of western New York. The farm is a dream come true for us as it has woods, a wonderful year-round trout stream,and is home to heron, fishers, weasels, hawks, deer, bear and coyotes and a multitude of other creatures. The resident bees are happy to pollinate our organically certified herbs and provide us with great tasting honey and beautiful beeswax.
Our goal has always been to live a simple, gentle, fun-filled life on the land, raising a family in harmony with all of creation. We have been blessed to be caretakers of this land for 30 years, raising our five children here, and now two of our grandchildren live here with their parents and Uncle Bill. We believe by working the land organically and biodynamically, being in rhythm with the land, we are able to harvest the very finest quality, high energy medicinal herbs. With these herbs we make teas, tinctures (extracts), salves, creams, infused oils, liniment and flower essences. We take care of the land and the land takes care of us.
Solomon Seal growing in a small woodlot by 12 Mile Creek which runs through our farm, next to an area where we do land ceremonies. There is also Blood Root, Goldenseal, Black and Blue Cohosh growing, along with Violets, and 15 colonies of bees to keep eveything humming along.
