About Us

some description

Established in 1986, our origins were a simple line of dried herbs, spices, and potpourri supplies that were sold out of a farm house. In 1999, The Herb Merchant achieved Inc. status and acquired the Susquehanna Spice Company, a local company offering a line of premier, all-natural seasoning blends. These spices remain available through this website.

The Herb Merchant is currently an "Internet Only" business, having closed our retail store in 2003 after 18 years of being in business. This move has allowed us to reduce our overhead and offer our products at the least cost to our customers, while maintaining our excellent standard of service.

We ship world-wide to a variety of customers, many of whom were once stationed at the Army War College here in Carlisle. Thank you for your patronage.
