BORAGE

About Borage

Borage, also known as starflower, is an ancient oilseed which has been used in the far-east for thousands of years. The oil is produced from borage seeds, and is one of the richest sources of essential fatty acids. Borage oil can be used both internally and externally. Internally, it can help regulate the hormonal systems, lower blood pressure, and relieve pre-menstrual tension. When used externally, borage oil can relieve unwanted skin conditions.

Borage is used for and can help with the following 

  • Skin conditions
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Stress
  • Diabetes
  • Attention deficit-hyperactivity syndrome (ADHD)

What makes our borage the best choice?

Best practices

Our growers are invited to attend Good Agricultural Practices Training (GAP) annually. This is an in-person training that meets the requirements of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule. We co-sponsor this with the North Dakota Department of Ag in order to ensure food safety best practices are followed on our growers’ farms.

Local growers

The seeds in our products are grown locally. We have long-term good working relationships with our growers, helping and supporting them during all parts of the growing season. We often make visits to the fields to monitor the crops in our products.
