Whispering Elm Farm is a small, bio-dynamic family farm located near Paola specializing in medicinal herbs and elderberries. We use cover crops, compost and focus on a wide variety of natives and other medicinals to build the soil and attract pollinators and allow our free range ducks to pest control. To extend our seasons and allow for winter harvests, we put in a high tunnel 4 years ago where we continue to experiment with a combination of annuals and perennials.
Additionally, we keep bees and have several medicinal gardens, cut flower beds, two blackberry patches and field of American elderberries. We have been certified organic the last few years but are dropping the certification in 2021 simply because for our small farm, it isn't worth the expense and hassle.
We are still 100% committed to organic practices so nothing will change in how we operate. We offer educational tours of our medicinal gardens, cut flower gardens, elderberries, tunnel and general infrastructure and are happy to share our journey with the organic certification process, transitioning from suburban life to establishing a homestead and our experiences with raising various poultry and bees. Our elderberries, fresh and dried herbs, honey, tonics, teas and other products are high-quality and hand-crafted in small batches to preserve medicinal qualities. We also offer a variety of wellness, gardening and beekeeping classes.
