At Mountain Rose Herbs, roughly 75% of our US-grown organic herbs are sourced directly from our network of 11 certified organic farms right here in the Pacific Northwest.
WHY WE LOVE THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
Farmers can grow an array of crops in this diverse bioregion, thanks to our temperate climate, clean water, and rich agricultural soils. From the world-renowned peppermint leaf known for its bold, minty flavor, to the indigenous california poppy, our growers take advantage of the climate that makes our area unique.
By supporting our local growers we also minimize our impact on the planet and support local economies. We know where our botanicals come from and are grateful for our long-term relationships with our farmers. We look forward to many more healthy harvests.
Earlier this spring we paid a visit to one of our Pacific Northwest farms, located in the Applegate Valley of southwestern Oregon. There, our certified organic farmers patiently waited for the weather to clear, the soil to dry out, and planting to begin. Spring is a time for anticipating harvests and preparing the ground for what lies ahead. Perennial and fall-planted crops were already in the soil and showing growth as temperatures warmed and days lengthened. The seedlings were out of the greenhouses to harden, while the farmers hoped for the heavy spring rains to subside, allowing them to cultivate the soil and get plants in the ground.
