The Organic Medicinal Herb Farmer is the first book to be published on organic commercial herb farming, written by a successful, small-scale herb farmer husband-and-wife team located in Vermont. The few existing books on growing herbs are often inaccurate, and inapplicable to the small-scale market growers of medicinal herbs, focusing mainly on growing in your backyard. This book focuses on quality over quantity, keeping costs down by innovating with existing equipment, rather than expensive technology and overproduction. It will help people interested in commercial medicinal herb farming determine what and how to grow using ecologically sustainable techniques while still remaining profitable.
