Comfrey PlantChickens, Ducks, Comfrey, Seeds, Fertilizers
Nantahala Farm and Garden raises Dominique and Bantam chickens, and Ancona ducks. I sell fertile chicken and duck hatching eggs most of the year.

"I'm quite impressed with your site and selection of products...and I've purchased some Ancona Duck eggs. Like yourself, I want to raise Heritage breeds here on the farm. Thanks so much for offering these ducks. I'm incubating eggs now, and if I'm successful...your flock will add to them and ensure genetic diversity." -Wayne, Gardendale, Alabama

I sell comfrey roots and seeds for planting. You can buy seeds such as October beans, Mizuna, Mammoth Melting Peas, Bronze Fennel, Stinging Nettle, Yarrow, Appalachian Corn, Sea Kale and more.

I offer Thorvin Organic Kelp and Azomite Mineral Powder for your soil, farm animals and pets. They are good fertilizers high in trace minerals. Try Frontier dried comfrey root for making an herbal tea or poultice.
