Kate Bartram Williams
Perhaps Kate shares the spirit of her ancestor John Bartram, the 18th Century plant finder and herbalist to royalty, but whatever the inspiration, in just a few short years her vision of Herbs on the Hill has blossomed.
For 18 yrs her ethos has remained the same as when she first began making and selling her products; never compromise in providing customers with the highest quality, pure, 100% natural and hand-made products that we can.
The Bartram name is as well known today as it has been throughout history in the Herbal and Horticultural World. If you are interested check out these links ¸.✿´´¯`•.¸¸. ི♥ྀ.
