Intentional Practices for Sustainable Growth
Thank you for arriving here, where our paths meet and a passion for doing something good grows organically.
October Fields Farm is a vegan micro farm that believes in healing through the holistic connection of plants and people. Meaning - rather than looking at a plant as 'what is this good for', we seek to integrate whole plant medicine to regain a balance between the mind, body, spirit, and its environment, to preserve our good health, to promote longevity and to improve our quality of life. Our 'whole-istic' approach to herbalism, is equal parts maintenance and prevention.
By focusing on superior soil health, we are able to produce over 50 rare, unique and hardy, organic medicinal plants on our certified vegan herb farm in Maine...without the use of pesticides, herbicides, chemicals or animal inputs (manure, bone char, feathers, etc...yuck!). Our veganic farming practices encourage living soils to produce naturally vibrant, healthy and nutrient rich plants that are good for you and good for the earth.
Holistic gardening feeds our passion to nurture and preserve the vitality of each plant, through a slow and time honored process, while promoting healthier ecosystems and soil regeneration. Tending to the rhythm of the season is both energetic and spiritual. Our hands are busy, our hearts are full with gratitude and we are forever in awe of what Mother Nature can provide. We rely greatly on sunny days and gentle rains, producing only what each season is capable of providing.
All of our ingredients grow right at our feet, which is why we never have to use vague terms like ‘we source organic and local whenever possible’. Know for certain where your herbal supplements are coming from and please support farmers that put in the extra labor to craft its products from seed to bottle. This is why you may find many of our products in high demand or in limited availability...so get it while you can! If we don’t grow it, we don’t sell it. If it sells out, we will restock it as soon as it grows again.
We don't employ big machines or mechanical processes, but rather handle each plant part with care, appreciation and two hands, encouraging a deeper connection to the plant world around us. It takes time, patience and respect to infuse good vibes into our plants....and we love getting our hands dirty!
With intention, we grow, harvest, dry and handcraft every plant product, and offer each to you.
