Pacific Botanicals

Gaia Herbs shares Pacific Botanicals’ sustainable agricultural values; as a result Pacific Botanicals is one of the most experienced and diversified organic medicinal herb farms in North America. Many of the herbs grown at Pacific Botanicals have been selected and acclimatized to their Northwestern microclimate for almost 30 years, producing potent plant medicine. Started as one man’s quest to heal himself, Mark Wheeler’s farm now encompasses 140 acres and he markets 200 medicinal and culinary products.

The Applegate Valley, where Pacific Botanicals is located, is one of Oregon’s natural climate treasures. The Applegate River that feeds the farm’s irrigation comes from the pristine snowmelt of the Marble Mountains of Southwest Oregon. There are no large polluting towns nearby and the isolated location of the farm along the river provides a buffer zone against any chemical spraying. Pacific Botanical’s generous 40-50 inches of rain in the winter and spring and the consistent warmth through summer and early fall allow for their crops to grow at full maturity for maximum potency.

Pacific Botanical’s region has a growing reputation as one of the finest herb producing areas in the world. The “Mediterranean” like environment—long damp mild springs, intense and heat-filled summers, lingering warm and slowly cooling autumns, and short but thoroughly wet and cold winters (filling the water reservoirs), nourishes the land and is ideal for producing a broad variety of medicinal herbs.

Ecologically Harvested is a term that describes all herbs sold by Gaia Herbs that are not Certified Organic. Ecologically Harvested herbs include herbs that are harvested in their natural habitat, (i.e., wild harvested) according to specific guidelines for harvesting these herbs (i.e., away from roads and industry, as well as guidelines to avoid overharvesting). Our term, Ecologically Harvested, also includes herbs that are grown in managed woodland areas, fields designated for specific herbs, and herbs that are grown by indigenous growers, such as Kava Kava. All Ecologically Harvested herbs pass pesticide and heavy metal testing as well as microbial testing, prior to release.
