Peg Schafer’s started the Chinese Medicinal Herb Farm 1997. Primarily an educational and research farm to date we have grown out more than 260 different Chinese herb crops. Herb quality, ecological cultivation practices, conservation and other issues affecting herbs are often addressed at Oriental Medicine colleges, conferences, and community events. Consultations are available for farm operations, grower/practitioner enterprises, herbal companies, research institutions and other stakeholder industries.
Peg is a founding member of the Lilium Initiative: American Grown Asian Herbs and the Sonoma County Herb Association and is the author of The Chinese Medicinal Herb Farm A Cultivator’s Guide to Small-Scale Organic Herb Production published by Chelsea Green.
