Over the past decade, over $2 million in awards from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and the United States Department of Agriculture has culminated in the creation of research grade quality goldenseal extract. This extract is unique in several ways, but primarily because it is standardized based on bioactivity, providing greater control of dosage and the opportunity for synergistic relationships between plant parts. Sleepy Hollow Farm is a Founding Member of the Institute for Nutraceutical Research at Clemson University and the American Council for Medicinally Active Plants. University collaborators with our projects include researchers from Clemson University, the University of Illinois at Chicago Colleges of Dentistry and Pharmacy, The University of Georgia Center for AgriBusiness and Economic Development, Rutgers University, University of Arkansas for Medical Science, North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and Western Carolina University’s Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation (and SBTDC).

We have long recognized that collaboration is the key to our success in scientific research, production, and marketing. Our commitment to providing the highest quality research grade goldenseal products is reflected in our collaboration with preeminent investigators who are advancing the scientific understanding of natural products and their interrelationships with living things. By forming strategic relationships with major university research institutions and faculty researchers on an individual basis, we have access to laboratories equal to most pharmaceutical companies. Yet, we never forget that the natural products with which we are so involved have been used and appreciated for thousands of years across numerous cultures and contexts.

Today, each of our products are grown, harvested and processed by a cooperative group of family farmers who remain dedicated to preserving traditional values while exploring the full potential of natural products through cutting-edge scientific research methods.
