A Letter to You:

Dear Beloved Friends & Customers,

First and foremost, I want to express my gratitude for your support of my business, Mountain Spirit Herbals. When you love your work, it is not work at all!

When I was a very young woman, I was very fortunate to have my great-grandmother teach me the family tradition of working with herbal medicine. With great pleasure I move into my thirtieth year as an herbal farmer and maker of medicine. I am proud to make fresh products in small batches. I am an earth-based company and have the pleasure of stewarding seven acres of mostly cedar forest and wetlands. I have chosen to keep my life and dreams simple. The products I make reflect these choices.  Most of my fresh-made products come from my gardens and the surrounding land.

I intend to continue to create herbal products from herbs grown on my land in Port Townsend WA. In order to do this I will need the help of farming equipment.  I do most the farming myself to insure the highest quality for use in the herbs which have helped our community's well-being. I use organic farming techniques. I am writing to ask you for a Donation towards the purchase of a small tractor. As I get older, there are tasks I can no longer manage by hand.

A mid-range used tractor with implements costs around $13,000.

Please make a contribution to Mountain Spirit Herbals in whatever amount you can and know you are held in very high regard for your continued support of my business.

Thank you,

Denise Joy

Where the Money's Going

    We intend to use the entire $13,000 on a mid-range tractor. If we exceed our goal, we can get a better tractor! If we don't reach the goal, we will continue to fundraise until the entire amount has been raised. We know we can do it with your support!


    Mountain Spirit has a wealth of herbal medicines, products and teas to share with generous donors. Check out the PERKS section in the sidebar for more info!
    If you find that you are moved to donate your money without needing any return, please do not choose a perk. Thank you for your Generosity!

    Why Expansion of the Farm is Important

    As the demand for herbal medicine and natural healing continues to grow, so has the demands for sustainably created products. The demand has begun to outweigh the supply.
