Elder Farm is an off-grid medicinal herb farm that works to close the loop of growing plants to giving medicine. Alongside cultivation, Elder Farm also prepares, prescribes and promulgates the virtues of herbal medicine. The pill-popping ‘solutionism’ approach to medicine (and food) is at odds with a holistic approach to agriculture practised by... more
