If you’re reading this, you’re probably interested in forest farming. And if not, perhaps you should be—forest farming can provide economic opportunities to the forest landowner or land steward while also providing significant environmental benefits, such as preserving forest cover and enhancing biodiversity through the reintroduction and establishment of new populations of at-risk forest herbs.

This 2nd edition is a comprehensive introduction to forest farming and how to sustainably produce medicinal woodland herbs for market. Includes detailed cultivation guides for six iconic Appalachian species, including American ginseng, ramps, goldenseal, black cohosh, bloodroot, and Solomon's seal.

Whether you’re interested in earning a supplemental income from your woods or contributing to the conservation of native species, forest farming has something for you.
