Healing Salve

Have you ever taken a look at the product list on triple-antibiotic ointments? If you can't say the ingredients, do you really want to use them? That's why we've created our homemade, 100% natural healing salve. Made with beeswax, therapeutic grade essential oils and healing oils, this salve can be used to treat cuts, scrapes and dry skin alike!  

Beeswax Products
Raw beeswax, lip balm, candles, handmade soaps, lotions and other products are upcoming new additions to our farm.   Our products are made using the time-honored tradition of past generations to provide you with a natural product you will enjoy. 

Our honey is local, pure, raw, and unfiltered.  We sell three sizes: 
  • 8 oz. : $6.00 
  • 12 oz : $8.00
  • 16 oz./1.5 lbs. : $10.00

We strain our honey coarsely to maintain the pollen grains.  Our honey is unheated to keep the nutritional benefits and beneficial enzymes of raw, natural honey.

Bee Pollen & Comb Honey
Fresh, pure bee pollen is a unique and powerful 100% natural product. Bee pollen is the most complete mineral supplement available in nature as it is rich in antioxidants and contains more amino acids than fish, beef or eggs. 

Comfrey Salve

Comfrey has been used for centuries to treat skin ailments, including severe dry skin like eczema. This all-natural salve is infused with olive oils which have been steeped with comfrey leaves and calendula flowers. When applied, dry patches heal; and, with continued use, the skin can retain it's balance and you'll see fewer problems with dry skin or eczema. Please note, comfrey is a powerful herb. We do not recommend this salve for infants or toddlers since their skin is so delicate. DO NOT INGEST. 

The Orchard

We offer fresh fruit when in season - including apples, peaches, plums and pears. 

We will be adding apple cider soon as a new product. 

Hand Cream

Our all-natural hand cream is made with therapeutic-grade essential oils known for their ability to nourish dry skin. The cream is safe for all ages and rubs into the skin easily. This is not a lotion - it's an oil-based product - the oils help retain moisture and keep skin moisturized. 

Lip Balm 

Made with 100% natural ingredients our lip balms are rich and help keep delicate skin hydrated and smooth. We currently have four flavors: Peppermint, Sweet Orange & Tahitian Vanilla, Mango and Coconut Lemongrass. 

Farm-Fresh Eggs 

Our farm-fresh eggs are $3.00/dozen and available throughout the year. When you open our egg carton - a rainbow of egg colors delights the eye while the bright, yellow-orange colored yolks add flavor to your favorite dish. 

We are a small family farm committed to offering all of our products in their most natural form.  Next to Nature Farm strives to ensure a  line of the highest quality products with an environmentally friendly focus. 

Our Farm Philosophy

Every customer is important to us and we strive to achieve complete customer satisfaction.  An unhappy customer is a lost customer. 

We have chosen not to use standard pesticides and take a “chemical free” approach with each and every one of our products. For example, in our fruit orchard for insect and disease control, we utilize pheromone and sticky traps for insect pest control, coupled with the use of soft products like horticultural oils and soaps.  With regards to disease pressure, we have designed our orchard with the mindset of planting only fruit tree varieties with strong disease resistance. 

With our flock of laying hens, we don’t incorporate the use of antibiotics for disease control or standard insecticides for parasite control.  Instead incorporating the use of natural remedies such as apple cider vinegar, anise extract, sauerkraut, and pumpkin. Our laying hens are offered a fenced in pasture area to range and feed on vegetation and insects.  With heavy predator pressure from coyotes and neighboring dogs, we have had to make adjustments and fence in our flock in a large 75’X 75” enclosure.   This allows us to offer as close to a “free-range” option as possible with the laying flock having full access to a rotational crop of seeded grasses and other native vegetation and a wide complement of insects.  This management practice offers us a healthy supply of farm fresh eggs with beautiful dark yellow-orange yolks  that have a wonderful flavor and are such better quality than factory-farmed eggs from the grocery store.

Our passion for honey bees started in 2013 when we added 2 beehives to our farm to support the pollination of our farm’s fruit tree orchard.  Fast forward to 2016 and we have currently 20 hives that supply us with a bounty of honey and beeswax that is used in many of our bee related products that we make.

We operate using sustainable methods.  What does that mean to you?  We are not Certified USDA Organic; however, the methods we utilize to produce our products for market are beyond the standard the government sets for certification.  With our small family owned business, we have focused our limited resources on producing high quality products rather than the time, money, and effort to pursue certification.  We have found over the years, our customers consistently comment on our high quality line of products. 

We accept visits to our farm by appointment only and invite our customers to tour our farm and see for themselves how production on any of our products starts - and how they are maintained till harvest.
