Welcome to Raven Crest Botanicals
Raven Crest Botanicals is an herbal apothecary and beautiful small-scale medicinal herb farm in upstate NY, owned by plant loving herbalist Susanna Raeven.
Our herbal remedies and artisan skin care products are made with fresh plants from our farm and created with great care and love for Mother Earth and all her creations.
Our mission is to grow medicinal herbs with sustainable and organic farming methods and wild-craft healing plants with knowledge and respect.
To create herbal remedies to help heal body, mind, and spirit of our community and our planet Earth.
To to be stewards of our land and to protect the plants and animals who flourish here.
Our medicinal herb farm in beautiful Schoharie county in upstate NY uses organic growing methods without the use of artificial fertilizers or pesticides. We use sustainable methods to build and improve our soil.
In the spring we grow the tender medicine seedlings in our passive solar earth-sheltered greenhouse without the use of fossil fuel. During the summer months we dry our herb harvests in the same space.
Our solar operated and pond fed irrigation system does not require any electricity. Our herbs are grown in self fertilizing raised Huegelkultur permaculture beds.
Raven Crest products are prepared with fresh high quality, locally grown and wild crafted herbs.
We choose high quality oils and butters for our healing balms, creams and massage oils.
All essential oils are therapeutic grade and steam distilled by companies known for their high quality standards and support of ecologically sustainable agriculture.
Our herbal extracts are infused in certified organic cane alcohol to create a truly organic herbal product and to support other organic farmers.
Raven Crest remedies are hand made with love in small batches so freshness is guaranteed.
