Life on The Omstead Farm

Our flock of Barbados Black Belly Sheep at The Omstead Farm in Armstrong, BC

Welcome to The Omstead Farm, a four-acre plot that we use to organically grow and wildcraft many of the ingredients that go into our line of personal care products.

We consistently grow garlic (have you tried our exquisite Smoked Garlic Salt??), apples, black currants, herbs and vegetables that we process into our line of Om Naturale products.

We also grow and/or wildcraft: Lavender, St. John's Wort, Comfrey, Echinacea, Calendula, Lavender, Lemon Balm, Chamomile, Peppermint, Spearmint, Poplar, Plantain, Violets, Yarrow, Red Clover and the list goes on. These plants are the foundation of everything we do.

To date, we've also raised poultry, laying hens, beef cattle and sheep.

In the years that we've been on The Omstead Farm, we went from complete novices to being somewhat productive farmers. We still have a lot to learn, but we're not afraid to make mistakes and, thanks to our network of friends at the farmers' markets, we're never short on advice!

We actively partner with other farmers and local businesses to grow our community of forward thinkers, because...what do you want tomorrow to look like?
