Our Story

Established 2016

 
 

Our Roots

Local herbal medicine provides an inexpensive and accessible option for individual and community health, empowering people through plant medicine, education, and earth stewardship.

 
“...Growing medicinal herbs in a sustainable manner is a healing endeavor not just for the intended users but for the plants and environment as a whole.”
— PEG SCHAFER, THE CHINESE MEDICINAL HERB FARM

Philosophy

Herban Austin believes in not only eating locally, but treating locally. Utilizing organic and sustainable growing practices on our small farm in East Austin, TX, we provide botanicals of the highest quality and efficacy to our surrounding community and beyond. Our company is composed of both licensed & certified health practitioners as well as experienced organic farmers to bridge the gap between healthcare, herbal purity & potency, and earth stewardship. 

Drawing upon traditional herbal knowledge, we strive to create medicinal products that meet the needs of our community. Our farm focuses on polyculture over monoculture in order to create a diverse growing environment that promotes a wild quality potency within our plants. Through organoleptic examination, microbiological methods testing for molds, yeasts, total bacteria, and other contaminants, Herban Austin's botanical products ensure the utmost quality and safety. 

Through educational community classes, we promote awareness surrounding plant medicine, sustainable living, and herb cultivation. Our certified and licensed practitioners offer consultations, classes, plant walks, workshops, and much more around the Central Texas region.
