On March 8, 1979, Herb Pharm was officially established as a bona fide business in Williams, Oregon. From the beginning, our mission has been unwavering: We are committed to providing the highest quality herbal products possible, educating people on the safe & effective use of medicinal herbs, & inspiring a love for plants and respect for Nature. Back in the early days, our "lab" was the home of Ed Smith and Sara Katz, the company's founders and owners. Bottles were filled one-by-one with a beaker, and labels were manually typed. Accompanied by a handful of apprentices, days and nights were spent planting, harvesting and grinding the roots, leaves, flowers and seeds that grew in our garden and the surrounding mountains to make our liquid herbal extracts.
