 My Farming Philosophy and Background

This field was harvested of mature pine trees in 2014 by Larry Stevens, and de-stumped and graded nicely by the Locke Brothers of West Cornwall.  I am a USDA Certified Organic farm. Herb seeds and rooted cuttings are all organic and, McEnroe organic compost is applied to the beds, along with local limestone, sand and straw. mulch. I grow organic white and re clover around the beds. The row beds follow the contour of the slope and are mulched with sustainable materials.

 Why did I choose Buck Mountain Herbs for a name?  According to the geographic maps, our land is a promontory at the base of Buck Mountain to our North, which protects this field from the harsh North winds.

I have a B.S. Degree in Environmental Horticulture from the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources at UCONN in Storrs, CT.  I grew up on a nursery, which my mother managed as a landscaper, in Glastonbury, CT. She grew up living with her grandparents, owners of James J. Kelley Nurseries of New Canaan, CT.  I have always enjoyed gardening, landscaping and the folklore and traditions of herb gardening. 

Once I saw this field I knew it was time to do something I have always wanted to do: start a small herb business!!!
