Welcome to Fir Meadow LLC. We are located in the Siskiyou mountains of southern Oregon. Kat has her masters degree in herbology and Master Herbalist (MH) designation and is a Vitalist. Vitalism goes back to Hippocrates, which is cause oriented rather than just symptom oriented (allopathy). It is a small branch of herbalism, but a very effective one. Kat also is a Certified Reflexologist (CR) and a Holistic Iridologist (Dipl.H.Ir.). She has completed studies in Aromatherapy (essential oils) with two different schools, is taking continuing education from a third school and has international certification in that field. She also is a C.E.I.T which is a Certified Equine Iridology Techincian and researcher. She has several more book projects lined up. Her work is about evenly split up between human and creature herbalism and her training allows her to consult on any condition. For creatures she also is not limited but can assist people with livestock, horses, pets, exotics, reptiles, birds, poultry, ratites, bees, fish and more (is there anything else?) to move them towards optimum wellness.
All of our livestock products Kat formulates. Some of the herbs we ship in from pesticide/herbicide free resources that Kat trusts. Some are organic, some are not, as not all herbs can be acquired with an organic label, and high quality wild crafted or naturally raised herbs Kat finds just as effective, without the higher price tag on them which would then have to be passed on to you. She also raises many of her own herbs (over 70 at last count) in an organic manner. You will find many of those in her livestock tinctures and salves. You will find these products to have strong herbal smells and colors- we do not adulturate our products and use highly efficiacious herbs. We use them here on our farm too- she NEEDs them to work! She also places safety high on her list of priorities, and does not use toxic, habit forming, or poisenous plants, formulates in a way that pregnant & lactating creatures and all species can use all products (except the CyclEaze which is not for anything that could be pregnant). We also offer steam distilled & CO2 extracted pure essential oils that she has sourced from wholesalers with integrity that multi test every batch of their oil.
Kat offers consultations via email, in person and by phone for both human wellness concerns and for pet and livestock concerns. Consultations must be prepaid before an appointment is set up. Payments currently can be received by check, by money order, or by paypal. Appointments will generally be set up for Tuesday through Thursday afternoons, Pacific Standard Time.
Kat does speak at conferences and conventions and can offer Iridology and reflexology at many of those. Contact her by email if you would like to set up a conference to find out her availability and fees.
She also raises, along with her husband, a nationally recognized and awarded herd of LaMancha dairy goats, with a couple of Toggenburgs thrown in for variety. They are on a complete alternative health program, yet are able to receive Best in Show, Top Ten milkers (in the US), and high appraisal scores. We sell milking stock and breeding stock every year and ship US wide. Please see that website if that interests you. They also curently raise Norwegian fjord horses, great pyrenees guardian dogs, a barn cat, assorted chickens (mostly australorps), and a couple of pigs each year. She has owned and worked with most types of farmstock and even exotics such as iguanas and geckos. If the creature is important to you, then it is important to her.
