Yellowroot tea
We use wild yellowroot for tea. It tastes bitter but helps cure many conditions including colds and flu. Whole yellowroot plants can be purchased at our online store - Payne Mountain Farms.
Mountain Mint grows wild in the North Georgia Mountains
Mountain Mint grows wild in meadows and wooded areas. It is a close kin to peppermint. North Georgia is home to many wild medicinal herbs.
Blackberries grow wild in North Georgia
Wild blackberries grow along the fences on Payne Mountain Farm. The leaves are used in herbal medicine for many purposes. We like the berries best especially in pies and jelly.
Viola or heartsease
Viola (or heartsease) grows wild in the North Georgia Mountains. Viola is used for heart problems. The flowers are also used in salads and as attractive garnishes on gourmet foods.
Bee Balm or Monrada
Bee Balm, also known as Monarda, is used for treating anxiety and stress. It makes a delicious, relaxing tea and comes back year after year without any fuss. It is a useful herbal remedy.
Old fashioned roses
Several varieties of old fashioned roses grow here on the farm. The scent is heavenly and the petals and rose hips (seed pods) are good for the body, mind, and spirit. Rose essential oil is fabulous (but expensive). It can be used on all skin types.
Mint Mint is easy to grow in North Georgia and it comes back year after year. The scent is wonderful and it is delicious in herbal tea. Mint comes in many varieties including lemon, peppermint, spearmint, chocolate, and pineapple.
Mullein drying for winter useWe pick mullein in July to dry for the winter months. Mullein is one of my favorite herbs and it grows wild all over the North Georgia Mountains. Mullein can also be used in tincture form.
Mullein plant growing on Payne Mountain Farm
Here is a picture of young mullein before it blooms. Notice the tight little bud on top of plant. Mullein is useful for lung conditions and is a great herb for beginning herbalists. It is easy to grow! Buy dried mullein leaf.

"And God said, To every beast of the earth and to every fowl of the air and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth wherein there is life, I have given EVERY GREEN HERB for meat: and it was so. And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold it was very good.  And the evening and the morning were the sixth day." Genesis 1:29-31

"The only way to really learn about herbal medicine is to touch and smell herbs, taste them, use them daily, and grow them if possible. Herbal medicine is a way of life - it is not a quick fix."... Janice Boling
