2021 Update on Reuben Schwartz
I recently called Mountain Air Herbs to get some updated info on my favorite Idirodolgist. So, here is the newest 2021 Update on Reuben Schwartz.
First of all…I DO NOT WORK FOR REUBEN. I was simply a client of his (well, my family and I). It has such and impact on me, that I have chosen to share my experience in hopes of helping others.
This is my story, I cannot speak for anyone else’s experience, this is my and my opinion only. I CANNOT MAKE YOU AN APPOINTMENT. Sadly, I live about 5 hrs from Hestand. I have been able to keep up with my friends at Mountain Air Herbs, to help keep everyone updated, as I can.
Mountain Air Herbs
This time, I spoke to the long time manager Carrie Beason. She, and the owners, are a wealth of information. They have the supplements/oils that Reuben (now Jake Shirk) do not carry. If you would like to contact them, you can click here and it will lead you to their website.
They are ENGLISH and not AMISH. They work closely with the Amish because of their deep love for their Vernon community. They CANNOT make appointments for Jake (formerly Reuben). Their hours of operation are Monday and Friday from 8-4 pm and on Saturday from 8-12, so their hours are a bit different from Jake’s hours (formely Reuben Schwartz).
They take cash, checks, and credit cards. They are very good at telling you what you need off of the list that is provided by Jake (formerly Reuben). Also, what are duplicates and what you can do without.
Again, they are a wealth of information. They can answer some questions, but not all the questions. They do have access to a phone because they are NOT Amish. You can get all the information from heading to their website at Mountain Air Herbs.
A HUGE thank yout to Carrie Beason for answering all our burning questions 🙂
As for Reuben
Reuben has RETIRED. Due to an eye injury (ironic, huh) and the death of his sweet wife, Reuben has officially retired. Jake Shirk has officially taken over. He has worked under Reuben for about 15 yrs (according to Carrie Beason from Mountain Air Herbs). Jake is fully capable and prepared to take care of all the needs you may have.
Jake’s services are still free (though donations are accepted). Also, the supplements/oils do cost money and you can buy using several different options. You can buy what you need for the moment, you can buy until your next appointment, should you make one. Also, you can do once a year.
Please bring your bottles back, as they can be recycled and you refilled to save on the environment. Try and remember your paper that they give you, because they will reference back to that and add to it, delete from it, as needed.
Address and Information
1205 Radure Rd
Hestand, KY 42151
Remember, they ARE AMISH. They have no access to computers, emails, phone, or electricity, for that matter. You will need to WRITE A LETTER in order to get an appointment. A reply letter can take anywhere from 7-10 days. You can request a better day/time for you, otherwise, they give you the first available.
You can walk-in. They will always give preference to those with appointments over walk-ins. They do stay busy, so keep that in mind.
There is no PHONE NUMBER for you to call. Amish. They ONLY TAKE CASH. I would, just for security take about $300 though you may not spend anywhere near that amount. It is better to be safe than sorry.
I did spend that much because I bought for 3 months. Again, better safe than sorry.
Hours and Days of Operation Have Changed
The NEW HOURS are
Monday and Friday 7:30-3:00
I welcome any and all questions, but again, I do not make the appointments. If you have any stories to share positive or negative, you can leave them on any post. It is good to have a well-rounded view of holistic care, which this is.
Reuben is a good man, as is Jake. I got the pleasure of meeting him the last time I brought my children. Reuben looked at half of us and Jake looked at the other half. Both men are very kind. Also remember that they sell their amazing breads, fruits, produce, popcorn, quilts, and other things. You can get some stuff at the store. Otherwise, you will see them outside, ready and willing to sell you their beautiful bounty of goodies.
