For Businesses and Institutional customers:
Goldthread is an Organic Medicinal Herb Farm nestled on three beautiful acres in the hills of Conway, Massachusetts. It is here that we grow high-quality, organic herbs to supply our Apothecary in Florence and our Herbal Medicine Farm Share.
We cultivate over 50 different medicinal herbs and spices. Each is organically grown and processed with the utmost care and skillfully crafted into vibrant and effective medicines including tinctures, elixirs, tea blends, essential oils, hydrosols, topical care products and more. We also offer bulk herbs & spices (for medicinal and culinary use), seeds & seedlings.
Goldthread was among the first farms in the country to offer Community Supported Medicine Shares, inspired by the CSA model. CSM shares are available in two sizes and include ready-to-use medicines useful for wide variety of common conditions including colds, flus, sore throats, digestive issues, sleep improvement, skin conditions, children’s health and more. Plus, seasonal treats like flavorful tea blends, cooking spices, delicious honeys and every-day necessities like natural bug repellent.
Our farm is also home to an 85-gallon wood fired distiller, and we have teamed up with the California based Floracopeia, Inc. to create a line of high quality, micro-distilled essential oils, created in small batches from the forests and farms of this region. We offer several hands-on distillation classes and essential oils workshops each year.
Educational courses include workshops, year-long internships and work-study programs — students range from hobbyists taking an evening class to doctors and pharmacists broadening their knowledge. Our classes incorporate Chinese, Ayurvedic, & Western herbal traditions, plus plant cultivation and clinical applications.
At Goldthread, our mission is to bring the finest herbal medicines to the people of the region, work towards creating a sustainable, non-toxic and cost-effective community-based healthcare system. We are proud to offer these amazing healing plants to the people of this region, and contribute to the good health of our community and our land.
