See Mason below at our Schizandra (Schisandra) orchard: note the rugged and wild landscape. There's companion planting and a flourishing, diverse eco-system. This is as close to fully wild as you can get! We stay in constant communication with our small-batch farmers, who are brimming with deep wisdom about how to harvest these berries, with long term harvesting in mind. See Mason below, as he explains why organic isn’t good enough and why we source Di Dao (Di Tao) Schizandra. We will never lower our sourcing standards.
This is as close as you can get to eating the wild herb! No pesticides, no “organic” fertilizers, just techniques that are HUNDREDS of years old to grow the most amazingly adaptogenic schizandra among a living ecosystem and diverse soil.
Our fave little schiz-berry works wonders for the skin, hormones, vitality, mental acuity, sharpness and feelings of passion by effecting all five of the organ systems. It tones our over-worked liver and helps detoxify years of muck (hello alcohol, drugs, the pill etc). Essentially, you cannot go wrong with schiz.
Mr. Lee is the SuperFeast farmer across 100 acres of pure, unadulterated, wild land in Changbai Mountain region. Schizandra berry is one of our all time favourite herbs, it is one of the main ingredients in our Beauty Blend and we need it to be potent in its effects. That’s why we source it from this particular region and farmer.
We've also got more behind the scenes vision of Mason, live from the schiz farm, tune in here to see.
