RISE UP REMEDIES is a three-quarter acre medicinal herb and mushroom farm located in Gresham, Oregon.
OUR MISSION is to provide herbalists, herb shops, and healers with potent medicinals while facilitating connection to earth, ourselves, and each other.
We tend over 50 medicinal plant varieties on our small yet abundant farm where ecosystem care is the driving force. Many of our plants are perennial with deep roots, allowing us to till less frequently and use less water. We utilize the resiliency of medicinal plants to keep pests at bay while encouraging beneficial insects to flourish. The main ingredients of our farm are sun, soil, water, sweat, and laughter. Growing herbs and mushrooms in ways that build soil, conserve water, and encourage biodiversity is at the heart of our operation.

ABOUT HEADWATERS INCUBATOR FARM
RISE UP REMEDIES is situated amongst 14 other small farms using sustainable practices at Headwaters Incubator Farm.
What's an Incubator Farm, you ask? Incubator Farms are a new model of farming that address barriers to beginning farmers, like access to land, capital, and credit, and provide opportunities to learn and develop skills in farm business planning.
At Headwaters, we share land with a diverse mix of vegetable, fruit, and flower farms, giving us an unmatched knowledge and resource exchange every single day. We often learn from our farm neighbors and opportunities for collaboration arise from our close proximity to like-minded ventures. We consider ourselves lucky to be a part of a growing network of farms that provide local food, flowers, and medicine for the greater Portland area! And with a five year lease at Headwaters, we plan to leave the land in better shape than we found it. Learn more about Headwaters Incubator Farm.
