St. Francis Herb Farm opens new facility in Ottawa Valley
Building on 33 years of success as a provider of plant-based medicine in Canada, St. Francis Herb Farm recently opened one of the country’s largest plant-based medicine facilities.
The 33,000 sf of space is dedicated to craft products to help enhance and protect the health and wellness of Canadians. Built in Barry’s Bay, Ont., the new site unites St. Francis Herb Farm operations for product research and development, production, distribution and warehousing, and allows expanded manufacturing capabilities, with the goal to add 12 new roles to the existing team of 50+ staff.
“When my parents started St. Frances Herb Farm, back in the summer of 1988 in the kitchen of their old farm house, they had a goal to help people live healthier lives. I know they had no idea that our wellness community would grow to this scale in Canada and we are grateful to our many dedicated and long-term customers who have supported us across Canada for all these years,” said Paul Rivett-Carnac, president, CEO and co-owner of St. Francis Herb Farm.
