|CONSULTATIONS SERVICE FOR FARMERS INTENDING TO GROW MEDICINAL HERBS|
|Pleasance Herbs now has a service for farmers
intending to grow medicinal herbs on a large scale.
Business plans are now available for those intending to acquire loans to set up for herb farming.
We have financial information to download from this site or purchased on floppy disk through the mail.
There are two sets of information available:
1. Large scale herb farming
2. Small scale herb farming.
Over the years of operating a small scale herb farm, and then a larger farm we have come up with financial information to help those farmers finding difficulty in locating detailed information to set up these types of businesses.
|My experience involving herb farming goes back
to 1972 when my father Mr Phil Pleasance and his brother Guy, operated Martin &
Pleasance Wholesale Chemists in Melbourne from the early 40's to 1989. A very
successful business in Homeopathics and the vitamin label "Golden Life" which is
still on the shelves today. My father was importing medicinal herb from England and the
States, also some countries in Europe, when I thought we should be able to grow
medicinal herbs in the harsh Australian climate quite easily. This we started in Casino
with a Hereford stud. It soon became evident that some of the herbs ( the more expensive
ones) could grow quite easily here on the north coast of NSW.
Today we still grow medicinal herbs for Martin & Pleasance, even though the business does not remain in the family any more.
A 1 hour visit to Pleasance Herb Seed Farm $40, viewing the crops available to grow, fertilizer requirements maintenance problems, and particularly the market quotas I have to slot you into and general layout of your farm.
Financial information is available for an extra cost of $50 for those intending to start small scale farming.
