Last Saturday, we had the wonderful opportunity to drive out to Sandy, Oregon and take a tour of one of the medicinal herb farms operated by Oregon’s Wild Harvest. This company is one of our main suppliers for bulk medicinal herbs, many of which they grow themselves on their biodynamic farm, which is USDA certified organic and also certified biodynamic by the Demeter Association.
It was a beautiful, sunny day and after some delicious iced herbal tea in the shade, owner Randy took us on a tour of the operation. We met many plants and he talked to us about his experience running the business over the past 25 years, working with the land, and his knowledge of the plants. It was incredibly informative and fascinating. We also got to learn more about biodynamic agriculture, and hope to incorporate many of these techniques into our own garden.
We look forward to our continued partnership with Oregon’s Wild Harvest, and feel even more appreciative of the wonderful herbs we use in our products after seeing this operation up close. Many thanks to Randy and Ruta for organizing the tour!
