At Dragon Tongue Medicinal Farm, we believe medicinal herbs are the expression of the healing nature of land itself. We are committed to cultivation and wildcrafting practices that respect the interconnectedness of life, using no chemical pesticides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms. As the wildcrafting tradition exemplifies, nature has grown medicinal herbs successfully for millennia. With close observation and minimal intervention, we seek to emulate the methods of the wild. Medicinal herb quality is the result of preserving nature’s vitality throughout the cultivation process and passing it on, intact, to the customer. That is what we’re here to do.
