Stockade Apothecary was founded by Katie Greaves in 2014 by a chance foraging class that sparked her love of herbal medicine. When she's not traveling for her "day job" as a camera assistant for reality TV shows; you can find her in the garden or foraging the fields of the Catskills; expanding her knowledge of herbalism to bring you her take on centuries old recipes using ingredients that are locally grown in the Hudson Valley. Stockade Apothecary is an extension of Katie's passion for plant-based wellness.
Co-owner and Stockade creative director, Danielle Hettara, founded Jacques Magazine in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (2008). It was through one of her photoshoots that Danielle discovered her passion for all things "Homestead" when one of her models taught her how to knit on set.
From there, Danielle branched out to embroidery, spinning yarn, natural dyeing, and aromatherapy. After closing the magazine in 2011 and heading upstate to fine-tune her skills and develop new ones, she opened the first urban commercial farm in uptown Kingston, Hettara Farm.
Call it luck or fate... being neighbors it was only a matter of time before these two met and coproduced...
