The Organic Medicinal Herb Farmer

  • $39.95


The Carpenters make the case that growing organic        medicinal herbs is not only  viable and profitable, but also an important step for improving the ecological health of farmland, taking pressure off of wild medicinal plant populations, and increasing biodiversity. While local foodways are more often the focus of  attention, local medicine ways are equally critical and in need of restoration.

The Organic Medicinal Herb Farmer is a one-of-a-kind   resource, complete with      detailed profiles of 50       medicinal herbs and over 200 color photographs. Whether you’re looking to grow an herb farm from the ground up, incorporate medicinal plants on an existing farm, or add tools to your belt as a seasoned grower, you’ll find the information you need in this volume.

The Carpenters offer their insights and tips on every aspect of herb farming, including:

  • Size and scale considerations
  • Data management for profit maximization
