St. Francis Herb Farm is a Canadian family-owned and operated business, based in Ontario for over 30 years.
We use the whole herb, because it contains all the active ingredients working together in perfect balance. That’s the age-old way of making herbal medicines. Using whole herbs also means we know exactly what we’re getting—we have seen powdered herbs from third parties that have been compromised. This is more than a “best practice”. It is a belief in and a respect for the traditional methods of herbal medicine.
We take a craftsman approach to make your herbal medicines the absolute best they can be. Our practices and tools are carefully designed to fit each particular herb. Techniques that use heat can be faster, but they also damage the herbs, so we grind our herbs slowly and use cold percolation methods instead. We make our tinctures, salves, creams, oils and capsules by drawing on time-tested methods that really work.
