About us

Sunflower beeWe are farmers
selling family organic olive oil,
shoemaking (Farm Shoes Handmade),
herbal & dietary consulting,
and making Birch Moon Herbals organic bodycare!

I am VERY excited about teaching shoemaking. I do individual or small group classes. Currently we have a class for 9-13 year old girls making leather BACKPACKS, and one for WOMEN, each making their own pair of SHOES from start to finish!
I am also excited to make super high-quality organic bodycare to sell in stores around the Pioneer Valley and New York. Contact us if you are a buyer or store owner and would like more information.

Right now I’m scheduling private shoemaking classes: A 2 or 3-class-sessions, 3-4 hours each, once a week for 2-3 weeks. Let me know by email sarah@farmshoes.com if you are interested! It’s lots of fun and very satisfying to make something you can wear daily!

About our FARM

Birch Moon Farm & Herbals is at the top of the hill in Shutesbury, MA, surrounded by birch trees and overlooking the beautiful Quabbin wilderness. We are Keith and Sarah, your growers. We grow everything organically, adding much to the soil in the way of minerals and compost.  Our vegetables and herbs are nutrient-dense, satisfying more than just your hunger! We are a solar-powered home!

AND we sell delicious Extra Virgin first cold-press organic olive oil from Olea Estates in Sparta, Greece ~ my extended family who has had organic olive oil production in the family for about 150 years. We sell it at the wholesale price ($40/tin cash only) and do not ship, so come and pick some up if you’re nearby!

We have a beautiful flower garden as well as many medicinal herb gardens. Call or email to take a private class and learn to identify herbs, their uses, or make salves, hand cream, tinctures (extracts) or herb honeys. Whatever you’ve always wanted to learn about herbs and traditional herbal medicine, if we know it, we’re happy to teach you!













  1. Hey Sarah,

    Great blog and site! Beautiful pictures and updates….I just signed the mailing list. I don’t get on e-cricket much these days so I haven’t seen the blog in a while but am glad to get it direct! Thanks,
