Biodynamic Herbs from Maine
The Farm is located near beautiful Rockport, Maine. These incredible gardens produce some of the most amazing plants and herbal remedies in the world. The soil is nourished and special care is given to support local pollinators like hummingbirds and bees.
Avena Botanicals is the first Demeter-certified biodynamic farm in Maine. Biodynamic agriculture is a holistic and spiritually alive system of organic and ecological practices and philosophies based on the teachings of Dr. Rudolf Steiner. One of the core beliefs and practices of biodynamics is to help heal the Earth.
MANUFACTURED BY HAND
Unlike most mass produced herbal products, Avena Botanicals are produced by people, not machines. From seed to bottle every step of the process is done by people. These herbal tinctures are produced in the traditional way that herbalists have always done, respecting the knowledge that nature has given.
Avena's gardens have been purposefully planted with protective hedgerows and flowering plants that offer nectar and pollen to dozens of pollinators. Shimmering ruby-throated hummingbirds and various butterflies, honey bees and native bees fill our gardens with an array of colors, sounds, and personalities.
