Many of our ingredients are foraged from the Canadian wilderness. Growing and harvesting areas in Whitney, located at the east gate of Algonquin Park on the Madawaska River, where we  practice Permaculture Forest gardening, and in Golden Lake on a 200-acre homestead where we are growing certified organic herbs, as well as many other locations. All of our herbs are wildcrafted (handpicked in the wild) in a sustainable manner (picking amounts that a deer would graze). Those herbs which are more rare are grown organically using non-mechanical, ecologically integrated and permacultural methods. No fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides or herbicides are used in or anywhere near where the herbs are grown or picked for the Algonquin Tea Co.
