Located in the southwestern Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina on 250 acres of land in one of the most diverse bioregions in North America, Gaia Farm is the only farm of its kind with an on-site state-of-the-art laboratory and processing facility.
In our fields, in our laboratory, and in our production facility, we study, observe, and learn from Nature—applying these lessons to the cultivation of many of the flowers, herbs, trees, roots, and grasses—and how to best facilitate the delivery of the medicinal bioactive constituents within these plants to the people who need them.
Our commitment to purity, integrity, and potency starts with the soil through our comprehensive organic fertility standards. Plants and seeds are selected only from sources whose organic methods and plant quality can be verified. Then we observe the plants as they grow from seedling to maturity, learning their unique life cycles, using analytical testing to measure bioactivity levels, and harvesting only when peak levels have been reached.
The same level of care is also applied when our herbs enter production in our facility through our rigid purity standards for sourcing and dedication to integrity using ourright + right extraction and low + low concentration methods to product extracts of the highest potency.
Since our founding in 1986, Gaia Herbs has been committed to upholding the rigorous standards required of a Certified Organic Grower (COG) as determined by Oregon Tilth, one of the strictest and most stringent organic certifiers in the nation. As a result, Gaia Farm (established in 1997) has earned its reputation as one of the leading growers and producers of Certified Organic herbs and herbal products in the United States.
We chose to meet the standards of Oregon Tilth specifically because they are the most uncompromising and thorough certifying bodies associated with sustainable approaches to agricultural production systems, processing, and handling. Each year, Oregon Tilth inspectors evaluate every aspect of our land, production methods, and facilities, including the assessment of our organic seed sourcing, cover cropping practices, crop rotation, soil fertility programs, pest control programs, machinery maintenance, greenhouse practices, neighboring land uses, crop washing practices, crop segregation, plant use and destination, and water use, as well as administrative and documentation practices.
Upholding these standards, Gaia Farm cultivates more than 5 million individual plants (representing XX species) during each annual growing season. These crops include Echinacea angustifolia, Echinacea purpurea, Skullcap, Valerian, Gotu Kola, Holy Basil, Nettles, California Poppy, Dandelion leaf, Dandelion root, Burdock root, Ginkgo leaf, Hawthorn leaf, Hawthorn flower, and Elder flowers.
Indigenous to Southeastern and Eastern Asia, this perennial member of the Zingiberaceae family has been used for thousands of years as a traditional medicine, coloring agent and spice. Currently India accounts for much of its cultivation. It is known as Shati in Sanskrit. Reports of its use as a medicine go as far back as 600 BC in Assyrian herbal accounts and can also be traced to Greek writings from Dioscorides. It has been used to support healthy digestion, promote cardiovascular health, and support the immune system as well as used topically and in the eyes in Ayurvedic medicine. In Western herbal medicine Turmeric is used as an aromatic bitter and for supporting healthy liver function.
Most of the clinical research has been conducted in-vitro and primarily on animal cells using the isolated constituents. Turmeric extracts have shown considerable pharmacological activity, but the exact modes of its actions are not yet fully understood. Most researchers agree that the basic mechanism of action within Turmeric is its potent antioxidant action. Curcuminoids seem to scavenge for damaging particles in the body known as “free-radicals”.
