Rise Up Remedies is a certified organic medicinal herb farm owned and operated by two friends, Lizzy Simpson and Laura Kennedy. Rise Up Remedies is driven by a mission to provide the most vibrant herbs and herbal products while facilitating connection to earth, ourselves, and each other.

Rise Up Remedies offers several ways to connect with local plant medicine, including a Fresh Herb CSA, on farm you-picks, cultivation and medicine making workshops, and a line of small batch herbal products and bulk dried herbs that are available at the farmer’s market and several local herb shops.

This team of two tends over 50 medicinal plant species on their 1-acre farm where ecosystem health is the driving force. Medicinal herbs are naturally resilient and provide important ecosystem services; they feed and shelter beneficial insects, keep pests at bay, decrease water use, and reduce the need for tillage. Inspired by the innate wisdom of these plants, building soil, conserving water and encouraging biodiversity are at the heart of operations at Rise Up Remedies.
