Welcome to Herbal Heritage Farms! I am Morgan, the owner of Herbal Heritage farms and the author of most of our educational content. I am a professional Horticulturalist with an Associate’s Degree in Natural Resources Law Enforcement and a Bachelor’s Degree in Horticulture. I became interested in herbalism and horticulture during my first semester of college back in 2014 when my dendrology professor mentioned other uses for native trees outside of lumber. This website is not only a place for us to showcase our farm and products, but to also share my studies and journeys in herbalism which is one of the main reasons I decided I wanted to farm.
With my partner, Luke, we decided in 2019 that we wanted open our own little herb shop and grow our own medicinal plants. During my time working at a hydroponic herb farm, I was encouraged by a fellow employee to consider flower farming. The more and more I looked into flower farming the more I fell in love with it.
Our goal was to buy land and begin farming in 2020 but soon the covid-19 pandemic hit and our plans were set back. We focused on education and sustainably wild harvesting small batch herbal products. Spring of 2021 will be our official grow year at a temporary location while we search for our forever farm.
Our goal is to grow and produce locally sourced products for Ohio and surrounding states. About 80% of cut flowers are imported into the U.S. with Columbia being the biggest supplier. A large portion of medicinal herbs are also imported from around the world. We want to provide high quality, fresh cut flowers to local florists as well as locally sourced and grown herbs. Locally sourced and USA made products cut down on fuel emissions and supports local businesses, which in turn supports the local economy. We want to make a connection with those around us and really bring nature to everyone’s homes. We have lost our connection to nature with the ability to get whatever we want from wherever we want around the world. Stop by, have a cup of tea grown here in Ohio, enjoys some flowers, and feel apart of a community that focuses on just that, our community.
My love affair with nature is so deep that I am not satisfied with being a mere onlooker, or nature tourist. I crave a more real and meaningful relationship. The spicy teas and tasty delicacies I prepare from wild ingredients are the bread and wine in which I have communion and fellowship with nature, and with the Author of that nature.
