Herbal extracts supplier Jiaherb (Pine Brook, NJ) has opened its own certified-organic farm in Mount Taibai, China. The farm grows seven of the company’s ingredients: Rhodiola rosea, feverfew, nettle, flaxseed, valerian, Rhapontici radix, and lemon balm.

The farm is USDA Organic certified. The certification audit was conducted by Kiwa BCS Öko-Garantie GmbH (Germany).

“We are excited to announce the establishment of our certified-organic farm,” said Scott Chen, president of Jiaherb, in a press release. “This milestone shows our commitment to promote sustainable agriculture and delivery premium, organic ingredients to the marketplace.”

The company says it chose Mount Tabai for the farm’s location because the area offers “rich biodiversity, unique climate, and pristine environment.” It adds in a press release: “To ensure organic certification, chemical fertilizers are entirely excluded from the process. All fertilizers are derived from organic materials, ensuring there is no contamination.”
