100's of home remedies for common health problems

Herbal Encyclopedia

Every Green Herb is an encyclopedia of healing knowledge that I have gathered from my elders, the internet, local libraries, and experts. With over 40 years of personal experience, I write about how people can use home remedies, herbs. and alternative medicines to treat common health problems.

Best videos about herbs and herbal medicine

I have recently began adding useful and accurate videos about using medicinal herbs in everyday life to the website -- no computerized voices, talking heads, or boring slideshows allowed. Some of my hand-picked videos are very entertaining and they all contain solid advice. Many thanks to the herbalists that share their experiences with us via YouTube.

For beginning herbalists

Remember that reading about herbal medicine and watching herbal videos are great ways to learn but nothing beats hands-on experience. Find a container, get some potting soil, and plant a few basil seeds. Visit a health food store and purchase some quality medicinal tea. Continue your research while trying different remedies. Soon you will be confident enough to start making tinctures, ointments, and other herbal products for yourself and your family.

Every Green Herb

Originally published in the North Georgia News, 100's of the weekly columns I wrote under the heading "Every Green Herb" are available on this website along with new content that I add almost daily. Here on the farm, we use herbal medicine, along with healthy diets and exercise, to protect and heal our bodies, minds, and spirits. Please join us on our journey as we discover new uses for every green herb and the rest of God's bounty.

Payne Mountain Farms

Located in Blairsville, Georgia, Tony and I sell wild herbs and handcrafted products - all dried, produced and packaged on our family farm in the North Georgia Mountains. Inventory changes with the seasons depending on what is available and may also vary from year to year. Celebrating our Appalachian heritage where sustainable farming is a way of life, we appreciate our customers and promise to provide the best service, the highest quality merchandise, a secure shopping experience, and fair prices.

Payne Mountain Farms is a real place (we are not currently open to the public due to codes and safety concerns). We are located in the North Georgia Mountains between Blue Ridge and Blairsville, Georgia. The farm is a real working farm, not a country estate or "hobby". There is always work to do and we love it! We might not get many financial rewards for our dedication, but we live like royalty. Thank God for healthy food, clean water, beautiful scenery, and all the other blessings that He provides. God is good!

Our family has many interests which come up a lot in my writing and photography. Medicinal herbs are my main subject matter -- herbs and their uses throughout history, where to find herbs, how to grow herbs, when to harvest them, tips for drying herbs, and storing them for winter use. Organic gardening, sustainable farming, animal husbandry, timber management, hay production, cooking, preserving foods, back-yard chickens, beading, crafts, reading, web design, volunteer work, dancing, prayer, and meditation also keep us busy and happy. Please contact us for more information.
