A New Year, 2024! January 05 2024, 0 Comments

Here we are in beginning of a New Year. The Herb and Artisan Shoppe is CLOSED for the season and will re-open in May, just in time for The New Hampshire Renaissance Faire. We love the Faire and look forward to it every year. For us here at The Olde Ways that means a lot of work and planning. "Plan your work and work your plan" as a dear friend used to always say and it is true. 

Some of the things we are working on...

Classses and events... gathering by the fire on these cold winter days in the "Keeping Room" to enlighten and inspire all things herbal and healthful. As well as, planning for warm weather garden tours and events.

Gardens...It seems that when it comes to gardens there is never ending planning and I just can't wait to see it all take shape.

New products... you can't run a business if you are not constantly coming up with new ideas and products. 

Social media...I am a farm girl. This a a hard one for me. Thank goodness I have the help of my daughters with this one. We are building our on-line presence and encourage everyone to like and follow us on facebook and instagram. 

Please leave us comments, suggestions and reviews.

We look forward to hearing from you!



We have a Store at The Olde Ways at Mustard Seed Farm January 25 2022, 0 Comments

We are so happy to announce that we are presently in the process of building a "brick and mortar" Store at The Olde Ways at Mustard Seed Farm in Tuftonboro, New Hampshire. Not only will we be expanding on our Herbal Products and Teas, but we will also include local Artisans, Farm Products and Country Wares. The store itself will be reminiscent of an old country store, an experience like stepping back to a simpler time with antique displays and a vintage cash register. We hope to open May 1st with a Grand Opening Event on June 5, 2022

Please follow us on facebook for updates.

Sweet Annie October 08 2014, 0 Comments

I have a big bunch of Sweet Annie (Artemisia annua) also known as sweet wormwood, sweet sagewort, annual wormwood,  and qīnghāo, growing just as you enter the garden. It is a tall fern like plant that isn't very impressive, but has a heavenly aroma.

I have been harvesting it and bringing it into my home where the fragrance is almost intoxicating. Sweet Annie has long been used to fight bacterial infections and is most commonly used in a preparation for malaria. It amazes me that such a sweet smelling herb can be so potent.

Dana, who also lives on the farm has been making grapevine wreaths intertwined with the Sweet Annie and laced with rosehips and tansy. They dry so well and are very pretty.
