History of Herbs America

Our Outreach

Man and Woman harvesting Maca from fieldsHerb’s America, Inc. works directly with botanists, tribal leaders, universities and laboratories to cultivate and research traditional medicines which are found to be beneficial for both humans and the land. Our mission is to bring equability to small farmers and to support indigenous populations in a joint effort to preserve the environment and agrarian economies. We believe that traditional wisdom and modern science can combine important resources for a long-term vision of biological health. We are adamant in our support of indigenous land rights and sustainable agriculture.

Over the years, we have come to understand that good nutrition is often the defining factor between healthy, happy cultures and over-stressed or impoverished communities. We have also discovered that much of the devastation to the earth forest is a result of non-sustainable farming operations. We hope to alleviate this by embracing permaculture and a sustainable harvest practices 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.

Our History

Amazon Warrior With Guayusa PlantThe History of Herbs America spans over the course of nearly 20 years, Herbs America’s founders have used USDA agriculture and agroforestry permits to develop more than 400 rare fruits and new superfoods for introduction into the farming sector and natural foods market.

To accomplish this, Herbs America works directly with botanists, tribal leaders, universities, and laboratories to cultivate and research traditional botanical which are found to be beneficial for both humans and the land.

Our goal is to bring equability and support indigenous populations in their efforts of preserving culture and environment while at the same time supporting small farming operations and agrarian economies in developing nations. The history of Herbs America is the constant support to not only the herbs and plants that grow from the land but the people as well.

We have established ourselves in the beautiful and fascinating country of Peru in 2 general regions:

  • In the Andean highlands, where we have partnered with a group of traditional master-growers, who practice chemical-free maca growing, harvesting, sorting and drying. We are
    excited to share our Maca Magic® product line with you.
  • In the steamy jungles of the Amazon, we work with tribal elders, shamans, and plant experts to bring you our exclusive Amazon TherapeuticsTM product line.

Our Mission

MissionAt Herbs America, Inc. we strive to:

  • Honor tradition
  • Consider the science
  • Embrace Quality
  • Furthering Sustainability and Fair-Trade
  • Believe in the fundamental goodness of people
  • Build and maintain real, authentic connections with our growers and customers

After 20 years in business, we are proud to share what we have learned about our priorities and beliefs as a company. We believe that good health, endurance and cheer are bounties immeasurable by monetary means, and contribute to peace on the planet. It is our Mission to honor the cultures and sacred practices of those who have been aware of these herbs for centuries. It is because of the indigenous people’s knowledge of plants and the way they documented them (in stories, songs, dance, and in their favorite recipes) that we are able to pass on to you these amazing botanicals. One of the most harmful 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.
