BACKYARD PATCH HERBS:
The best hand-made herbal items available, including cooking blends, teas, crafts and bath items. Made from home-grown, organically-raised herbs, my products contain no added preservatives. In my 3/4 acre herb garden I grow most of herbs I use in my blends and seasonings. This allows me to give you the freshest herbs, no preservatives, and great flavors.

I pride myself on easy-to-use mixes and the quality of my herbs which feature a long shelf-life. Since I hand blend the herbs if you have allergies or diet restrictions we can reformulate blends to eliminate certain herbs or seasonings to fit your needs. Please do not hesitate to use the conversation link to discuss your requests.

I am also able to create custom blend teas, make seasonal tea blends, and many, many cooking blends. Feel free to ask us to make something special for you or your family.

About BackyardPatchHerbs

On Etsy since 2010

It all Started in the Backyard

Before I had 3/4 of an acre of plants to make my herb seasonings from scratch, I had a small 5 foot by 7 foot backyard garden. Even that small garden produced a surplus I made into herb tea and cooking seasonings for holiday gift giving, by 1992 I started Backyard Patch Herbs.

Traveling to local farmers markets I slowly began to blend dried herbs into mixes because although my customers liked herbs, they did not know how to use them without a bit of guidance. Starting with a Dill Dip mix and an Italian Salad Dressing, I now make more than 40 spread and dip mixes as well as seasonings, herbal teas and bath items.

My little garden in the backyard was outgrown and I moved to a production garden of 3/4 of an acre where I grow most of what I use to create my blends. I still grow most myself, blend all the herbs by hand and use only my own recipes to create my specialties.

    Back in the 1990s I planted my first herb garden. Now I manage 3/4 of an acre and craft those herbs into custom herb seasonings for cooking and tea. All herb blends are hand-crafted from my own recipes.
