Since 1994, the North Carolina Ginseng & Goldenseal Co. has been growing organic medicinal herbs (and trees), specializing in ginseng and goldenseal, plus other woodland botanicals in a natural hardwood cove at Eagle Feather Organic Farm.

The Southern Appalachian School for Growing Medicinal Plants is an herbal growing school that holds classes for individuals throughout the season on all aspects of organic farming in the woods with forest crops. Classes are geared to what the student wants to learn, such as starting a garden, growing in the forest, or sessions on water. Robert Eidus, owner, also holds farm tours as interest in agritourism develops.
