Join us to celebrate the 27th Anniversary of Organically Grown in Oregon Week, September 13 – 19!

Mountain Rose Herbs is committed to organic, sustainable agriculture and we’re not alone. We support the Oregon Organic Coalition (OOC) alongside other businesses, non-profit organizations, and individuals passionate about growing the organic industry. The OOC works to inform, educate and advocate for policy change around organic legislature, the National Organic Action Plan, and other initiatives. They also know how to celebrate success and pay tribute to leaders in the industry at their annual luncheon.

In 2011, OOC honored Mountain Rose with the Wholesaler of the Year Award for Excellence!

We are so proud to offer locally-sourced, organic products from our home state.
