Over the course of nearly 20 years, Herbs America's
founders have been developing tribal medicinals, herb
crops, and super foods for introduction into the natural
Working in more than thirty countries around the world,
HERBS AMERICA has used USDA agriculture and agro forestry
permits to introduce over 400 live-food crops (new plants,
seeds and important economic tree species) to North America.
We avidly support SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE. Many of our plants can be found on Uluwehi Farm on Hawaii's big island.
The goal is to bring equitability to small farming operations
in developing countries and support indigenous populations
in their efforts of preserving culture while at the same
time supporting agrarian economies.
BOTANICAL & CULTURAL PRESERVATION
Over the years, we have come to understand that good
nutrition is often the defining factor between healthy,
happy cultures and overstressed or impoverished communities.

We have discovered that much of the devastation to the
earth forest is a result of non-sustainable farming operations. We hope
to alleviate this by practicing permaculture and a
sustainable harvest wherever we work.
We believe that a nutrient-rich food
supply can contribute to emotional and spiritual aspects
such as tranquility, contemplation and compassion for
others. Chemical imbalances in the body govern the attitudes
and mood. Good health, endurance and cheer are bounties
immeasurable by monetary means, and can contribute
to peace on the planet.
One of the most inhuman things a company can do to
a small farmer is to pressure them to use chemicals
or short sighted farming practices. We never pressure
our growers to utilize chemicals to increase yield.
In fact, we promote organic agriculture and collaborate
with traditional farmers who specialize in organic methods.
