Hanging Herbs

We generally supply herbs in 1, 2 or 3 kilo packs with the exception of Slippery Elm as it is  an expensive herb and often not needed in large quantities so we have reduced this to 100g.

We pack all the herbs ourselves, so if you want other quantities just call (01527 869 072) or email us (info@natural-equine.co.uk) for a price.
