A medicinal herbal bouquet for mother’s day, using wild-crafted Goldcup & Gill over the Ground–both traditional, although not well known, medicinals.
Goldcup is used over the centuries in traditional poultices–it’s an acidic plant–and Gill over the Ground makes a tea that has traditionally been used for digestion. It has a lovely green flavor but is also eaten as a healthy raw salad green.
Gill over the Ground was first used in beer, prior to the cultivation of hops, and an old English term for a measure of beer was “gill.”
Herbs wild-crafted from the farm are done so responsibly–and no sprays, synthetic fertilizers or pesticides are used on anything here, either wild-crafted or cultivated.
Bouquets (along with a beautiful card explaining the herbs) will be available for Mother’s Day at our Sunday Farmer’s Market!
