St. Francis Herb Farm: A Proud History
St. Francis Herb Farm began nearly 30 years ago with a young family, a small farm and a simple idea: to craft herbal medicines using traditional methods that have been used for hundreds of years, because that’s the way that yields the best results. The company was founded by Monique and Jeremy Rivett-Carnac, who built a business that is respected for its integrity, and for the care and intention it brings to every step of the process to create products that work really well. Today, their son and daughter-in-law Paul and Caitlin Rivett-Carnac are the new owners of St. Francis Herb Farm. They’re proud to continue building on that foundation: a young family, a small farm, and that same simple idea for the next generation.
Strength in Tradition
They’re proud that their company has such a solid reputation for authentic craftsmanship and integrity. Their secret: Abiding respect for traditional herbal knowledge that has been honed over thousands of years, and an unshakeable belief that the way herbal medicines are made matters. Quite simply, they craft their herbal medicines the traditional way with the highest quality herbs they can find,because it results in better, more effective medicine. At every step, they make decisions with thoughtful care and intention, and they work hard to make sure that they get it right.
They use the whole herb, because it contains all the active ingredients working together in perfect balance. That’s the age-old way of making herbal medicines. Using whole herbs also means they know exactly what they’re getting – they have seen powdered herbs from third parties that have been compromised. This is more than a “best practice”; it is a belief in and a respect for the traditional methods of herbal medicine.
