Welcome to Cutting Root Farm & Apothecary! We are beyond thrilled to share our herbs and flowers with you. Cutting Root is a community supported organic medicinal herb and cut flower farm, artist residency program, community apothecary and education space. We have been on the journey of care giving the land on this farm for nine years, growing over 150 different species of medicinal herbs and flowers. We respectfully acknowledge that our farm exists on occupied Shawnee, Seneca / Cayuga (Haudenosaunee/Iroquois) land. We take care to grow more than what we need- donating dried herbs to Dine (Navajo) elders and beautiful bouquets to Flowers for Black Beloveds. Check out our Community Joy page for more information.
On and off the farm, we engage people and meet them where they are in their use of botanicals in their lives. We have lovely live plants for sale in the spring and fall, fresh herbs are available seasonally, our cut flowers bring joy to our farmer’s market booth and your home, and all of our apothecary products are made using organic herbs. We host gatherings, classes, volunteer days and other events.
Workshops and educational opportunities abound to learn more about growing and using herbs. The Wild Cherries Herbal Studies Programs offers an Intro to Herbal Studies course for folks who want to learn more. More focused classes are taught via zoom, at the farm, or in Pittsburgh. Check out our Class page for more info!)
Volunteers and visitors are always welcome! Just check our volunteer hours or contact us to make an appointment. It’s our honor to share this land and these plants with you.
