Recipes - Meat Seasoning

Here are some recipes you can make that use either our Backyard Patch Meat Seasoning or Grilled Meat Rub Herb Mix

Grandpa’s Meatloaf (serves 4 to 6)

Combine ground meat.  Mix dry ingredients together and moisten with milk and egg.  Blend mixture into meat with a fork or your hands.  Form into loaf shape and place in aluminum foil lined loaf pan.  Top with ketchup if desired.  Bake at 400 degrees for 50 minutes or until juices run clear.

Baked Feta

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place the feta on a 12 inch square of foil.  Press chosen herb mixture onto sides of feta.  Drizzle with olive oil and season with cracked black pepper.  Gently fold the sides and ends of foil over cheese to create a parcel. Place on a baking tray and bake 10 to 15 minutes until feta is soft.  Drain any excess liquid before serving and serve hot or cold chopped into a salad, with crusty bread, or as part of a cheese platter.

How it all started

I started growing herbs in 1994. I love the scents, the shades of green, and the scent and texture of the leaves. I love everything about them!

My first herb garden resulted from my need for good tea herbs. To this day, tea is among my favorite creations.

My husband does not use salt or preservatives, as a result all my seasonings and mixes, are all salt free, organic and preservative free.

Commonly asked Questions


Do you use preservatives?

All of our blends are created with no preservatives, flavor enhancers or anti-clumping agents.

We grow our herbs organically, no chemical fertilizers, no pesticides and only organic methods.  The herbs are grown in "hills" placed in rows.  This allows us to walk among the plants but keep a high-quality soil and easy watering methods that makes plants drought resistant.

Are your items salt and gluten-free?

All our herb blends are crafted with no salt and no gluten. Our baking mixes will be clearly marked if they are gluten-free, but all will be low salt. However, since we make all the blends ourselves if you wish no salt in a baking mix (scones, breads, etc.) just ask and we will blend them without salt.

How and where do you ship?

Due to restrictions on plant materials, we only ship to the US or US territories. NO international orders are accepted. All items can be shipped either UPS or USPS depending on weight.

Where do your herbs come from?

We grow almost all of the herbs we use in our blends at our 3/4 acre herb garden. We have been growing herbs since 1994 and created our garden space in 1998 growing our herbs production style in hills and rows.
