Hello and welcome to FarmacyCo, as you scroll down the page you’ll discover I REALLY love plants, I love growing them, I love harvesting them and I love using them in both food and medicine, FarmacyCo and The Farmacy Garden are a lifetime of study and passion. I hope you enjoy it as much as me.
I make all of my products in our Apothecary in Beechworth from locally grown and “wild foraged herbs” (a wanky term for picked in a paddock), a lot of them are considered weeds.
SHop OUr Range
Bioregionalism a fancy term for locally grown and harvested, it’s our main practice at the Apothecary, this ensures the efficacy is at peak when blending and distilling to make our products making sure you are getting the best quality available. Did you know all imported herbs get irradiated at customs? Makes you think…
Most herbal medicine is grass roots or “Folk” method and something you can learn to do for yourself. Join me for one of my fun, for herb nerds, seasonal workshops. The classes are small so you get a hands on experience. click on the links below to see whats on offer. If you are keen, put your details to our ‘in the weeds news’ so you don’t miss out, some book out quickly.
In the weeds is a play on my time as a chef in busy restaurants, during peak service times when you felt like you were drowning in orders you would verbalise you were ‘in the weeds’. Now in the weeds takes on a completely different meaning for me.
Join me as I happily jump ‘In the weeds’ and share my journey with using herbs for food & medicine and receive a free copy of my Materia Medica
Our Herb & Seed Bank
Want to know about growing, harvesting and using plants? Jump over to this site for all of the plant eye candy. It’s where you can get hard to find interesting herb books, gardening tools and all of the seeds to grow your own. I also add a few seedlings from time to time so you don’t have to wait.
Copper is one of the oldest metals known to human civilisation and has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries, besides this how beautiful do the copper stills look? I love them so much I have a site below you can buy your own.
Hand Forged Copper Stills
We now distribute hand forged copper alembic stills though our sister site Alembic Alchemy direct from Portugal. The factory has been making copper stills since 1835 so they know what they are doing. They are stunning hand crafted and work a treat. I make all my essential oils with them.
There is a little saying in herby circles that “if you walk bare foot on the earth, the plants you need to heal will grow” I love all the little folk tales when learning about herbal medicine. It softens some of the dry serious aspects of clinical herbalism studies.
Social Connect with me
Really friendly owner and very generous in sharing her vast natural health knowledge. I love the shop and all the great natural health products. I wish there was a store near me. I just tried the shampoo bar and my hair loved it and me scalp feels very refreshed.
Hi there. I received the gift box for my birthday and just tried the ceremonial cacao elixir. This was hands down amazing! It’s so earthy, rich and feels so magical. My fiance and I agree this is our new favourite drink on cold days such as today. Just wanted to say thank you for making such a delicious product & we will definitely be restocking it once we run out.
I just loved Naomi’s workshop, I learnt so much about herbs and feel like I have enough knowledge to be able to put into practice everything I learnt at home and can’t wait to get my own apothecary up and running. Oh, and my herb seedlings have taken off so I can harvest from my garden. Thank you!
