My name is Dawn Combs. I wear a lot of hats, but they all contribute to an overall love of being a self-sufficient, homesteader. I am a wife to Carson and mom to two ornery children, our daughter Jacy (born 2011) and our son Aidan (born 2009). I’m a practicing herbalist and an herb farmer. They say that if you get a few herbalists in a room together you’ll generally find that an herb once saved their lives. When I was diagnosed as infertile, it was to the herbs that I turned…. it is thanks to them, and a whole foods, REAL FOOD diet, that I have my children. So, they didn’t save my life, but they surely rescued it!
I own a farm with my husband called Mockingbird Meadows Herbal Health Farm. We raise our animals (a goat, 3 sheep, many chickens, several cats, a dog, a turkey, 2 ducks and soon a cow) our bees and care for our land using biodynamic principles. We produce honey and grow medicinal herbs, specializing in herbs for women’s health.
My husband and I are co-leaders of a local chapter of Weston Price and I am passionate about access to nutrient-dense foods.
I long for a time long ago when everyone knew enough about the herbs to care for their family’s basic health needs on their own. I am passionate about returning this basic knowledge to my community. Here at our farm we offer a Medicinal Herbs CSA for locals as well as in a Long Distance format for anyone in the United States. I also teach workshops on our farm. We offer farm tours, operate a United Plant Savers Botanical Sanctuary and attend local farmer’s markets. These are all ways, coupled with the products I make, to deliver herbal knowledge.

We specialize in making products that are food based. We are best known for our Infused Honeys and our Honey Spreads. We do not believe in heating our honey at any point in our process, therefore all of the honey we use is raw. Visit our farm store for more about our products.
