Prairie House Herbs is lovingly operated by two sisters who spent time during their youth with Aunts and Uncles who lived on farms. Spending time in big cities, (Jo mostly in the Denver area; Laura in Texas) we knew for certain that you can take the girl off the farm but you can never get the farming instinct out of the girl. We were able to find a little farm in need of tender loving care which we purchased in March, 2000. We are as close to Colorado and Nebraska as you can get and still be in a town in Kansas. In 2010 Laura moved to Greeley, CO and grows many of the herbs there.



We keep Guinea fowl, ducks, geese, turkeys and chickens for pest control. Our geese are excellent at warning us when strangers come to the yard. We have cats who do a great job of keeping the rodent population under control--no poisons or traps needed there!
Practices
We use no antibiotics, no hormones, no GMOs and no soy. Our animals are treated like part of the family, fed what nature originally intended for them to eat; we do interfere with nature where predators are concerned but try to protect our creatures from harm by providing a safe place to spend the night where the coyotes, foxes, skunks, raccoons, opossums and badgers, snakes cannot easily reach them.



About our eggs...Our chickens live as Mother Nature intended: free to roam about finding tasty nuggets as they go. We do help Mother out a bit by having a variety of grains (but never GMO), water and shelter readily available for them. Because of their foraging opportunities the yolks in their eggs have a glowing yellow-orange color reminiscent of a fall harvest moon on the horizon. According to independent testing, eggs from hens raised in this manner are higher in healthy nutrients than eggs from caged hens.



About our herbs...Our herbs are grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. We hand pick all of our herbs, air dry them and mix each of our herbal seasoning mixes in small batches. Because of these practices, our products will always taste similar, but will not always be exactly the same. When using spices we are unable to grow in the High Plains due to climate conditions, we purchase only the finest quality spices to include in our mixes.
