Tony and Cami first started their business back in the spring of 2020. As a result of the pandemic, they had recently lost their jobs and needed to make lemonade out of lemons! It all started with microgreens. Cami and Tony bought microgreen seeds online, seeded a few trays in their living room, made up a brochure and started pounding the pavement.
In addition to growing microgreens, they've also grown their space; Cami and Tony soon came up with some new product lines, including herbal teas, wellness soaps and finishing salts; all of which included microgreens or mushrooms! Come summertime, they decided to get a booth at farmer’s markets and handed out samples like crazy. As such, Herbal Apothecary was born.
