Time of Harvest

Herbal potency can be increased by timing and method of harvest. Using both the knowledge of our ancestors and scientific methods, we collect plants at the optimal time for their respective growing period.

How We Harvest

We harvest according to the season, time of day, or stage, in order to capture the plant its peak potency. This can be measured today with the assistance of laboratory tests which show optimal levels of active constituents. We also integrate sustainable concepts that are important to us, such as taking only what is needed, not wasting any material, and re-populating plant species.

After We Harvest

Today, with technological advancements, we are able to harvest and dry herbs utilizing modern technology powered by traditional knowledge. However, we must balance the proper traditional use of the herb with modern preferences, as illustrated by our article on dang gui. Drying and storage methods are equally important, and require the use of thoughtfully designed machinery and containment systems to minimize mold, insect damage, inappropriate moisture levels, and to reduce spoilage. This preserves the plant in its best state for delivery to our customers.
