Prairie Doctor Brand was founded in 1994 by Robert, a Vancouver Island based Echinacea farmer. Prairie Doctor Brand began by happenstance, after Robert one year grew more Echinacea than he knew what to do with and decided to tincture it as a way of not letting it go to waste.
In 2020 Prairie Doctor Brand was purchased from Robert by its current owners, the father/daughter/son team of Shawn, Remy & Teagan. Now, in 2023, what was once a single tincture brand has grown to produce approximately 300 herbal tinctures supplying independent health food stores across Canada.
Our Values & Our Products:
We are incredibly meticulous when it comes to crafting our products. Every herb and material that we use is diligently & individually sourced to ensure that we are always offering the highest quality and most sustainable products possible. Close to 80% of our herbs are certified organic, and those that aren't are what we like to call "uncertified organic" meaning that despite not having the certification, they meet all of the standards and guidelines. Being kind to our planet in our choices is of critical importance to us, so we always do our best to source our herbs from as close to home as we possibly can. We are lucky to have the opportunity to work with a lot of BC-based farmers and growers, and what we can't get here we get from within the Pacific Northwest or from sustainable, high-quality producers across the globe.
All of our tinctures are made using a 100% Organic & non-GMO Cane Alcohol as well as a locally sourced spring water. From batching, stirring and pressing to bottling and labelling, all of our products are made entirely by hand in small batches. We're big believers in the energetics of the herbs, and do everything by hand in an effort to not disrupt or alter that by using electrical, industrial equipment. It's labour intensive, but it's what allows us to make the best herbal medicine that we possibly can which is without a doubt worth the extra time and energy.
