At Steadfast Herbs we want to support folks in taking care of themselves and each other.
We believe that health is political, care is essential and bodies are resilient. We create locally grown, handcrafted remedies for cultivating physical, mental, and emotional well being. We make herbal medicine to provide preventative and holistic care for our communities while also caring for the plants and places that tend to us. We try to keep the cost of our Herbal CSA low and are committed to donating medicine to Bay Area projects working towards economic and racial justice.
We cultivate our own organic herbs at Root Down Farm and Potrero Nuevo Farm in Pescadero, CA. We use local honey and beeswax from Oakland's Bee Healthy Honey Shop and all other materials like oil, alcohol and vinegar we source organic and local as often as possible.

We are two radical queers who are rooted in magic and committed to anti-oppression politics. As anti-capitalists we are experimenting with navigating a business with integrity- honoring our labor, holding respect for the plants and making our remedies accessible. It's a process that we're excited to include you in!
