Elderberries are a great option for fall and winter wellness. They are easy to grow at home and fun to harvest and process into your own homemade medicine. We like to make elderberry juice when then berries first ripen in August or September, then we make elderberry syrup to store in the fridge for the upcoming winter and we also freeze more berries to use for teas we make as needed. You can also purchase dried elderberries for any of the recipes.
About Our Family
Hi, we are Sarah & Peter Milcetic of Better with Thyme Farm! On our farm we focus on working with Creation and the wisdom of God’s design. Stewarding our land and animals for God's glory gives us hope and freedom for the present and eternity.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. -John 15:4

New! The Hub
Introducing the Holistic Homesteaders Hub! Our mission is to create a network of breeders, buyers and service providers who are dedicated to stewarding our animals for their optimal wellbeing, rearing our animals as close to nature as possible and incorporating natural remedies only as needed.
We Love Thyme
We love thyme. With seemingly endless varieties of this aromatic, delicious, medicinal, flowering evergreen ground cover we thought it was a perfect namesake for our farm. We especially loved creating a play on words that reflects hope, regeneration and abundance.
Our Favorite Herbs & Spices
Any herbs & spices that we need but don't grow ourselves, we buy from Mountain Rose Herbs! The first time we smelled their garlic powder, we realized they offer the best bulk herbs you can buy and we've loved every herb and spice we have purchased from them - both for ourselves and our animals!
Whether messy child hands, muddy chore overalls, milk coated milking supplies, slobbery dog bowls (or any other mess you can name on the homestead) these are the ONLY cleaning supplies that met our holistic standards for our homestead!
I was so thankful to discover the Thieves line after tiring of greenwashed products that didn't get the job done and left me feeling awful too. No compromises here!
