About

Our Farm

Our small, women-owned and operated farm crew cares for our crops from seed to harvest and hand processing each herb in our certified kitchen, crafting herbal blends that reflect care of the land, unique and pungent flavors, and a sense of place. 

We are committed to regenerative farming practices and creating herbal products that improve the quality of life and well-being of all our communities and the land. Tooth of the Lion Farm is Certified Naturally Grown, a grassroots model of organic certification for small scale farmers that guarantees the safety and integrity of all our herbs and products. 

We make it simple for you to incorporate local herbal medicine into your daily life. Enjoy the flavors of our fields in each soothing cup of chamomile tea or punchy shot of meadow tonic! 

Together, we are working to build an accessible, local medicine movement, to improve the quality of life and well-being of our communities, and to cultivate connections between people and non-human nature.

Owner / operator, Tooth of the Lion Farm

Hello! I bet you’re wondering “how I got into all this” - a question I am asked frequently and still don’t quite know how to answer. The truth is that the plants got into me, and I learn more from them every day. Growing abundant, potent and quality herbal blends for you on this little plot of land in Orwigsburg, Pa is my soul work. I believe that we need plant medicine to be our fullest human selves, and that plant medicine can be both simple and deeply transformative.

This farm and apothecary work is my medicine, and I strive to grow plants for you that ooze pleasure, connect you more deeply to the people and plants around you, and propel you forward to do your own soul work in the world.
