How it’s grown

Farming with nature

The rosemary is cultivated in the Baviaanskloof, where it is grown using regenerative organic farming practices. Most of the rosemary is organically certified. Honeybush is harvested by farmers in the Langkloof Valley who collaborate with the Langkloof Honeybush Company. Though they are not yet organically certified, crops are grown using organic farming techniques and never sprayed with pesticides.

Wild harvesting guidelines

Our wild honeybush is harvested in full compliance with sustainable wild harvesting guidelines. Harvesters only target the mature plants to ensure minimal impact, while also clearing invasive alien species on the plot where they work. This process is managed by Living Lands.
