Philosophy~ Herbs America is motivated by a belief that it is the land, and our relationship to it, that empowers our cultivated products and makes them better. We are committed to free trade and support traditional agrarian families in Peru to promote sustainable agricultural practices with a portion of each sale. In continuing our high standards, we oversee the entire process from the planting of the seeds to the packing of each product.

    That’s amazing. The amount of hard work native people put into harvesting just a single pound of maca root must be respected . The work you have done in this area since 1994 is astounding. But the traditions and respect the native farmers have given to thier home land for 2,000 years is true magic. Thanks for making them known as the real inovators of natural medicine and spending so much time side by side with then harvesting , planting, … and probably drinking maca beer and the potent maca wine or other little known remidios they keep in thier cold stone houses and granieries high in the andes of Peru.
