About Us / Helvetia Apothecary History: Planting the seeds of health. Sweetrock Farm (aka Helvetia Apothecary) ~ Planting the seeds of health. Helvetia Apothecary has moved to Sweetrock Farm, in the Helvetia/Rock Creek watershed. We are a community supported apothecary, growing and making the fresh and dried herbs and herbal remedies. As a medicinal garden center, we are starting with approximately 75 of the most vital and effective herbs (which will be available in 2010). And we will have a complete line of culinary herbs. We are continuing our soil development and planting the perennials, and are working to expand the gardens through this next season.A CSA subscription gives you the peace of mind of knowing where your teas, tinctures, salves, oils and other preparations come from, and you have direct involvement in what we grow. Currently, a share in the CSA gives you free consultations, free herbal remedies, and free follow-up to your health and wellness issues. We wildcraft some herbs, and my fiance grows corn, grains, vegetables and a few fruit trees for summer market days. We also have a free-range flock of chickens, producing over a dozen eggs a day for sale. Diane Vireday is a medical herbalist in practice since 2007, and would like to share her knowledge with you of botany, medicinal gardening, and the preparation of fresh, medicinal strength herbal remedies. She is a graduate of ACHS and specializes in body systems issues for the liver, digestion, respiratory and skeleton for adults and senior citizens.
