Do You Know Where Your Herbs Come From?

Four Elements Organic Herbals starts your herbal wellness from seed.

Curiosity of Natural remedies revealed that what was growing in Jane’s gardens would help her children more than when she went to the doctor. From there, Four Elements organic Herbals developed a complete herbal wellness line, established in 1987. Specializing in herbs since 1982, Jane has been growing and using these effective plants, grown in the Pristine Baraboo Bluffs of Wisconsin on her and husband David's 130 acre certified organic farm. They have been certified organic since 1990 and take great care to cultivate sustainably offering organic matter to the soil every year, which gives them food, herbs, beauty, and fresh air.

These herbs are planted and harvested according to the moon’s cycles, adding to their potency. These effective products are made in small batches with recipes based on Jane’s decades of herbal wisdom.

“Germinating seeds, plant propagation and connecting people to health in the natural world through my products and teaching are the favorite parts of my job.” says Jane. Click on the education tab to see what topics and classes Jane offers.
