Michael "Skeeter" Pilarski shows me his storage shed for his herbs. He has a successful business of selling herbs, both fresh and dried. Skeeter is a well known permaculture instructure and wildcrafter.

He mentions that about 3/4 of his dried herbs are organic farmed (vs. wildcrafted (wild harvested)) and 1/2 of his fresh herbs are organic farmed.

It sure smells good in there!

Skeeter talks a little about his herb cleaning system.

Skeeter also has tinctures.

The shed is dry and rodent proof with a good, even temperature.

There is enough in the shed for hundreds of thousands of cups of tea, and hundreds of thousands of bottles of tincture.

Well known clients of skeeter's: "The Herbalist" and "The Herbalist and Alchemist" - most of Skeeter's stuff ends up with naturopaths.

Wowee    Looks great!  Wish I could smell that shed for myself.
 
They weren't very bright, but they were very, very big. Ad contrast:
