Mountain Rose Herbs: Organic Sourcing from Pacific Northwest Farms

PNW Farms_Calendula Field

In 2001, we moved Mountain Rose Herbs from California to Oregon to be closer to our farm operations, wild harvesters, and processors. We are proud of the fact that we have nurtured relationships with our Pacific Northwest farm partners for 30-plus years. Today, we source about 75% of our American-grown organic herbs from Pacific Northwest farmers here in the bioregion we call home.

The Pacific Northwest as a whole is an incredibly diverse region with a temperate climate and rich soils that allow farmers to grow a wide array of crops. We are blessed to live and work in the Willamette Valley of this lush region—an alluvial plain created by multiple ice-age megafloods that left behind ancient volcanic and glacial deposits to form one of the most fertile and productive areas in the United States. Our locale gives us easy access to the productive farming communities up and down the Interstate-5 corridor—from British Columbia to Northern California—and also east across Oregon and Washington to the Idaho border.

Our proximity means we have the privilege to truly get to know our farm partners and the ins and outs of their organic operations. By understanding their seasonal farming processes and spending time learning how we can best support their work, we all operate more efficiently, sustainably, and cost-effectively: minimizing our impact on the planet and helping to build local economies in the process. We believe it is essential to put time and energy into nurturing these relationships because the quality of the products you buy from us depends on the farmers we work with.

When we purchase organic hydrosols, mint, and nettles in Washington, or bee balm and hops in Oregon, we do so with people who bring the most knowledge, dedication, and passion to their farming methods, organic seed choices, sustainable land and water use, and equitable labor practices. In other words, we only work with farmers who share our commitment to people, plants, and planet. 

We are so grateful for our long-term relationships with Pacific Northwest farmers and we want to acknowledge the many precious organic botanicals we source for our bulk herb and spice offerings and fresh herbal extracts. Many thanks to them for all of these herbal allies:
