Hello, I'm Madelyn, and Mickelberry Gardens is my company. My husband and I are beekeepers, and our company grew from our work with the honeybees and my love of herbal medicine. We keep about 40 hives on a certified organic farm in Troutdale, Oregon, and harvest honey, beeswax, and propolis with respect and gratitude. Herbal honey and beeswax creations are our specialty!
I have been inspired to make herbal medicine from spending lots of time creating and tending urban gardens, from the pages of my growing herbal library, and from plant teachers I have been blessed to learn from. I gravitate towards using plants I have gotten to know well over the years, and am always looking to learn more and go deeper. I really love to combine plants that I trust with the magical gifts of the honeybees, with an underlying commitment to sustainability.
Holistic beekeeping methods are the backbone of our herbal honey and beeswax creations. I have spent a lot of my life working towards various degrees and certificates, and now I am putting my energy towards developing a sustainable livelihood.
