Red Road Herbs is a haven of peace and tranquility tucked away in the rolling cuthills of northeast Nebraska.  Our herbs are grown in harmony with Nature, respectfully harvested by hand at peak potency, then air-dried to retain premium quality.  Our products are made with loving care.

* We provide a place to connect with Nature with over 100 herbs in cultivated gardens, in cozy woodland sitting areas and in stands of native plants along a rambling creek.

* We provide a hands-on learning experience using the gardens as living textbooks that students can touch, taste and smell.

* We offer individual and group classes by request.

* We offer free garden tours by request.

* We offer individual and group retreats by request.

* We sell fresh and dried herbs as well as a few handmade herbal products at our on-site shop, on our website and in several retail locations.

We’re a family business and have lived/worked/learned on this acreage for 20 years.   As you read the blog posts you’ll get to know our family.  You’ll also get to know our philosophy on health and harmony.  For now, we’ll start with an explanation of why our business has the name Red Road Herbs.

It was an interest in Native American culture that started us on a path of learning more about the connection between plants and people.   We wanted to represent that influence in the name of our business.

The Good Red Road is part of the Medicine Wheel of traditional Native American culture.  The Medicine Wheel is, in its simplest terms, a symbol of Life.   On the Medicine Wheel, the Good Red Road of spiritual understanding intersects with the Hard Black Road of everyday life.  At the place where the two roads cross (when we have a chance in our everyday lives to feel the presence of spirit) that place is sacred.

We believe we’ve been blessed with a place that can heal – by the plants growing here and by the comfort of Nature’s touch in a gentle breeze or the calming sound of the cottonwood leaves “clapping” in the wind. We feel blessed to be able to share this beauty with others and to share the knowledge we’ve gained from living in this haven of peace and tranquility.
