Primarily an educational and research farm we offer tours and maintain a popular apprenticeship and to continue to explore growing Chinese herb crops. Herb quality, ecological cultivation practices, conservation and other issues affecting herbs are often addressed at Oriental Medicine colleges, conferences, and community events. Consultations are available for farm operations, grower/practitioner enterprises, herbal companies, research institutions and other stakeholder industries.
