East End: Herricks Lane Farm in Jamesport
In this week's the East End, News 12's Doug Geed takes a look at a farm that grows plants and herbs for medicinal use.
Nicole Orens-Williams took an interest in medicinal plants. When she couldn't find what she was looking for at local farms, she started growing her own. Eventually she started selling them. Now she and her husband run Herricks Lane Farm in Jamesport, which is adjacent to the horse farm where they live.
In spring, customers can browse their farm looking for plants or search their apothecary for such things as lavender, echinacea, and the very popular elderberry.
Husband Tom takes care of other chores on the farm - including a not so glamorous one - manure duties.
They use about 50% of their horse manure in the farm.
