About Us

History

44 years ago, Meg Harrison, founder and owner, was using flower essences for the treatment of alcoholic teens. Then she had a revelation in the aftermath of a horrible horseback riding accident when the horse's owner used flower essences on Meg and her horse to great affect. Since that time 25 years ago, Meg has created a wide range of products to help with the mental, physical, and emotional needs of animals. 

       Uses of these products were well proven in the wake of the Southern California wildfires of 2003 where her products helped to calm and stabilize traumatized pets and farm animals who were lost, injured, or abandoned during the fast moving blazes. At this time Meg decided to market her products and became BlackWing Farms.  

        In 2005, Meg then went to Louisiana and volunteered (eventually to be hired by the Humane Society of the United States) to help care for the animal victims of Hurricane Katrina (and while there also weathered Hurricane Rita). Again the value of her flower essences was proven as time and again they effectively helped to calm and treat the animals in the care of the Humane Society of the United States and the Louisiana SPCA.
        Since then the products of BlackWing Farms have been requested by various distributors including Jeffers Pet Catalog, as well as the animal rescue organizations, Best Friends Animal Society, ASPCA in NYC, Animal Farm Foundation, the Humane Society of the US, The Gentle Barn in their rescues and longterm care of slaughterhouse animals.

       Within the last 10 years, we also began to market a line of sprays for use by people to affect mood. This product is a direct descendent of the flower essence concept used by Meg 40+ years ago and are formulated using flower essences and essential oils.

BlackWing Farms’ Mission is to:

Enrich the lives and relationships of humans and animals through the most effective plant-based remedies, always improving mental and emotional well-being, while empowering others with knowledge and shared experiences.

BRAGGING RIGHTS!
We never give up! No matter what or who! And still our success rate is 93% and that is not considering that 6% of humans who used our products wrong! So that math is 99% !!
Plus 91% saw improvement within 3 days. This includes all animals in emergency situations, or stuck emotionally in a traumatic past, or currently living in a less than ideal setting. That's amazing - no matter how you slice it. 
And then there are our practices and policies... 
* Practice never includes roots or bark for the health and sustainability of the planet's plants, weeds, and trees.
* Everything we make is done individually by hand following the traditions of Dr. Edward Bach.
* Only a select few people are allowed to work on the products adding to the integrity of what we do.
* Our essential oils are all medicinal and therapeutic grade and we never trade with China or Russia because we do not believe in their practices.
* Our packing peanuts have been edible and compostable since 2007 when they were not cheap! 
* Every year, we donate and discount so much to rescues and rescuers that we don't quite tell the IRS the entire truth! Debra said they'd never believe us!! 
* We never question a refund request. We never even ask for the remedy to be returned since we know that is not the problem.
* Our policy is "Permanent behavior improvement for any animal, any problem." Refunds average 0.06% annually.
