About Us


Gaia Herbs – The Herbal Experts
Since 1987, Gaia Herbs has established itself as the leading grower and producer of Certified Organic (COG) herbs and herbal products. Nestled in a pristine mountain valley in Western North Carolina, the Gaia Herb Farm is one of the largest and most productive commercial herb farms in the U.S. We cultivate over 50 crops on 250 acres that are certified organic by Oregon Tilth. As a vertically integrated company, we control every stage of production from organic soil enrichment programs, seed selection, cultivation, and harvesting, to research and analysis for correct harvest time.

Our products are always validated to Full Spectrum Potency which ensures that the entirety of a plant’s unique phytochemical makeup is intact. By extracting a plant’s entire range of beneficial phytochemistries and concentrating them to a predetermined level, the resulting product retains the beneficial chemistry identical to the original plants, yet prepared to a guaranteed potency every time. We never purify or isolate any properties of the herb, but instead make herbal products that mirrors nature.

In 2001, we changed the face of herbal medicine with the introduction of Liquid Phyto-Caps™, a patented delivery system for liquid extracts. This exclusive technology delivers a concentrated liquid extract in a vegetarian capsule. One Liquid Phyto-Cap™ equals as much as 75 drops of a Gaia Herbs Liquid Extract, which equals as much as 375 drops of other brands’ tinctures. The net result is a much greater health value and strength at a lower price per milligram.
