Here at Glory Farm we are always looking for ways to make our farm more self supporting. I came across an article in Small Farm magazine and thought maybe we'd give this a try. Picking wild botanicals for resale. There are a number of wild herbs that grow here, some bring better prices than others. Things like dandelion roots and leaves, rasberry leaves, strawberry leaves, red clover blossoms, burdock, yellow dock are in demand. The recommeded book, "Directory of Flower and Herb Buyers 2007", is available at Prairie Oak Publishing for $12. I haven't ordered it yet, but I might. Their website is www.herb-buyers.com. Has anyone else given this a try? I realize it takes quite a bit of some herbs to make a pound. I don't think that this is a get rich quick program, but it might work for spending money for the children.
Have a blessed Sunday.
