The short answer: our mission is to apply principles of agroforestry and permaculture to grow, harvest, process, and create herbal products in hope to aid in longevity and equanimity for both the individual and mother nature.
For a slightly more elaborate answer, continue reading.
What do you sell?
Herbal teas, tinctures, and tees.
How are you different from other companies?
The majority of American farmland is dominated by industrial agriculture ~ the system of chemically intensive food production developed in the decades after World War II, featuring astronomical single-crop farms and animal production facilities. We use principles of agroforestry and permaculture to grow extremely diverse and abundant systems. We understand that profits are a priority, but for us, that does not mean our conscience should take a back seat.
Where do you get your herbs from?
From suppliers who share and support our vision. The Haiku Aina Permaculture Initiative (HAPI), where we are aspiring to create a model of soil renewal, reforestation, and human interaction with nature in a paradigm of respect, harmony, and adherence to the natural law.

Who are our products for?
Anyone who is concerned about their ecological footprint. Athletes. Artists. Musicians. Entrepreneurs.
Why? Why do you guys do what you do?
Because we care. We care about the impact our decisions—from something as simple as what shirt we choose to throw on in the morning—have on everyone else. But also because we need to. We are explorers, travel junkies, and creators; we simply cannot do a 9-5 desk job. Thus this choice down the risky, exciting, restless road of entrepreneurship.
