At Mickelberry Gardens, where we source our ingredients is a huge part of what makes our product line so special. We are committed to sourcing from regional producers who practice organic agriculture. This prioritizes soil and water stewardship and conscientious farming methods.
We're proud to purchase over 75% of all of the raw materials for our products from suppliers located in the Pacific Northwest, contributing to a vibrant regional economy.
Honey, Beeswax, Bee Pollen, Propolis
All of our honey is sourced from beekeepers we trust. We also do extensive testing on our honey to ensure the absence of adulterants, pesticides, and antibiotics. We are confident this honey is the highest quality available.

Herbal products are at their peak potency when the plants harvested are organic, fresh, and healthy. We have worked to build a network of small, local, organic growers to source the majority of the herbs we use in our product line. We purchase herbs farm-direct, and often process and dry these herbs ourselves. The quality difference truly shines through when herbs are sourced farm-fresh!

Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
The Apple Cider Vinegar we use in our tonics is always raw, with the Mother of Vinegar. It is made from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho grown whole organic apples. It contains all of the nutrition contained in the apples, with the addition of beneficial enzymes and probiotics from fermentation.
