Many of our botanicals are grown by us in the high Rocky Mountains of Colorado. We feel that the intensity of light found in our high elevation bio-region creates powerfully healing plants.
Harvested at Peak Potency
When and how we harvest is vital to retaining the healing properties of plants. We collect each variety in its optimal growth stage, season and time of day. Early morning, under a new moon is when you will likely find us in the fields collecting the beautiful botanicals that are found in each remedy we craft.
While sun is essential to the growth of our botanicals, it can be degrading to the quality of the herbs after harvest. All of our herbs are dried in the shade to protect the health giving properties of each leaf and flower.
Biodynamics is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to farming, gardening, food and nutrition. Biodynamic agriculture has been practiced for nearly a century, on every continent on Earth. Biodynamic principles and practices are based on the spiritual insights and practical suggestions of Dr. Rudolf Steiner, and have been developed through the collaboration of many farmers and researchers since the early 1920's.
Biodynamic farmers strive to create a diversified, balanced farm ecosystem that generates health and fertility as much as possible from within the farm itself. Preparations made from fermented manure, minerals and herbs are used to help restore and harmonize the vital life forces of the farm and to enhance the nutrition, quality and flavor of the food being raised. Biodynamic practitioners also recognize and strive to work in cooperation with the subtle influences of the wider cosmos on soil, plant and animal health.
