Currently, it is difficult to find Chinese herbs used for medicinal purposes that are domestically grown. It is one of our goals at ALCHEMY to see that change. We collectively have lived in western North Carolina for over 20 years and are so proud of our community's local and organically based farming efforts. We now want to be a contributing force that makes growing Chinese herbs an economically viable local farming venture. We are establishing relationships with farmers in the area who are already growing Chinese medicinal herbs and we are thrilled to help those operations flourish along with us.
