Herbs An Overview

Herb Production in Saskatchewan

The number of herbs that are available worldwide is exceedingly great, but only a limited number are grown commercially outdoors in Saskatchewan. Some herbs, such as sweet basil and rosemary, are adaptable to greenhouse production. 

The interest in herb production in Saskatchewan, as well as all of North America, has varied dramatically in the last three decades. This has been stimulated by many consumers looking for natural food and organically produced products, ethnic foods, and alternative medicines, as well as farmers wanting to grow alternative crops for economic reasons.

The Production, Marketing, and Starting a Herb Plot pages will provide more information how to grow and sell herbs in Saskatchewan.
