Walking into Urban Homestead Supply is like walking into an apothecary tucked neatly amongst the enduring downtown architecture. The smell that fills the air once you walk in is intoxicating, a fragrance only lent too by the collection of curious labels and castile, as well as the endless ensemble of herb packed jars sitting atop wooden shelves. Perhaps you are searching for a certain formula or remedy…
As your eyes scan the jars and jars of teas, tinctures, scoops, and wooden spoons that line the shelves, your nose finds sentiment or nostalgia, but not quit knowing where to place it. Towards the back of the shop you could find succulents and small glass terrariums overflowing with the aroma of the earth, rose, and a hint of vetiver. The array is awe inspiring and with Tracey’s herbal knowledge it will be such a joy to produce your first blend in store.

Origins of Urban Homestead Supply
Urban Homestead Supply is located on Clay Street in Mebane NC in an old historic preservation building. The building dates back to 1919 and has been a jail, a bank, an insurance company, and now, a shop for organic gardeners and those interested in basic country skills, such as fermentation, cheese making, medicinal herbs and more.
The shop offers cut flowers, vegetable starts, and herbs that are grown on the owners property near by with no pesticides, as well as gifts and organic garden supplies for the urban gardener and the DIY enthusiast.
