About Bareroot Botanicals

Bareroot Botanicals is a nursery and herb farm based in north county Sligo which specialises in medicinal plants from around the world. It is owned and ran by Iona Herbal Herbalists Ross Hennessy and Marina Kesso.

We hope that through our nursery and the courses we run on the farm that we will empower people to use and grow these plants and see an ancient form of natural healing passed onto another generation.
