Oregon’s Wild Harvest Introduces Demeter® Certified Biodynamic® Herbal Tonics

in 13 Dynamic Formulas 

REDMOND, Ore. -  February 24, 2016

Oregon’s Wild Harvest, a family-owned and -run USDA organic herbal supplement company, is launching the first Demeter® Certified Biodynamic® herbal tonics. The collection of 13 easy-to-take tonics are formulated to address the health disrupting effects of chronic stress, and to help restore and maintain balance and homeostasis throughout all body systems.

Each tonic is produced in small batches with whole herbs grown in the fertile, volcanic soil on the company’s 137-acre Biodynamic certified farm located in the shadow of Oregon’s Cascade Mountain Range. Hand-harvested herbs are processed fresh or dried, infused with a flavorful, lively Biodynamic certified grape alcohol, and then macerated into a concentrate of natural healing extracts that are transformed into tonics.

“The Biodynamic farming process is so profound and natural that the moment you take these tonics your body will respond, producing digestive enzymes to help break down and deliver these healing tonics - just as nature intended,” said Randy Buresh, R.N., Oregon’s Wild Harvest co-founder, farmer and herbalist.

A two-ounce bottle contains 24 tasty and robustly flavored doses of a popular single raw herb or herb combination developed to naturally address the most common conditions, such as stress, sleep, immunity, digestion and muscle ache.

“The quality and potency of our tonics starts with the soil,” said Buresh. “Without healthy soil, you don’t have healthy plants. Without healthy plants, you don’t have healthy people. We have a necessary and vital connection to the plant world that has been lost, and this is our way of bringing that connection back and sharing it with others.”

Farming with the cycles and rhythms of nature

Certified organic since 1994, Oregon’s Wild Harvest adopted Biodynamic farming practices in 2009 to enrich the land and keep crops healthy. Developed by Dr. Rudolf Steiner in 1924, Biodynamic farming regards the farm as a living entity and primarily closed system. In fact, Biodynamic farming methods actually increase soil fertility by returning more to the soil than is taken out. Composting, green manure crops and the use of Biodynamic preps helps to build humus, which is the best way to pull carbon out of the atmosphere and give it back to the soil where it can do the most good.

Where Biodynamic farming also differs from other forms of organic or sustainable agriculture is in its idea that farming can be attuned to the spiritual forces of the cosmos. For Oregon’s Wild Harvest this means linking sowing and harvesting to the phases of the moon or the positions of the planets; using Biodynamic preparations to nourish the soil and plants, balancing the living energies on the farm. In addition, Biodynamic farming practices include setting aside at least 10 percent of the farm to maintain a natural habitat for pollinators, including bees, wasps, butterflies and other insects.
