Kaituna the Farm
Growing anti-Candida and anti-yeast ingredient
Forest Herbs has spent many years learning how to grow and harvest Horopito sustainably. Some varieties will not survive regular harvesting, others are too slow to be commercially viable. Even the fastest of these slow growing plants takes eight years to grow from seedling to harvestable size.
Forest Herbs' farm, Kaituna, is set in a temperate rainforest on the edge of the million acre Kahurangi National Park. The microclimate there replicates Horopito's natural growing conditions, so the plants can be grown without artificial fertilizers or sprays. The farm and the Kolorex Horopito leaf harvested from it, have been certified organic for many years by IFOAM accredited organizations.
