I’m Emily. I live on a 6-acre homestead with my two children, my husband, and our menagerie of animals in Western North Carolina.

Originally from the coast of North Carolina, we moved to the mountains for something different.

When I’m not busy with my children or running the property, I’m an herbalist and birth doula. My passion is for historical herbalism and gardens.

This blog is a celebration of my heritage, my love for the area I left behind. It’s part food blog, sharing recipes and small-batch products that I love, and part travel blog as I take my children to my home and continue our journey through the coastal communities of both North and South Carolina.

I’m also pulling in my passion for herbalism as I share with you some of the plants that can be foraged on the coast and the history of plants used in the colonial area.
