While our goal is for Appalachian Botanical Co. to be funded in West Virginia, by West Virginians, we’ll gladly talk to anyone who shares our commitment to growing opportunity in the Mountain State. If you would like to invest in us, or learn more about this investment opportunity, please click here to send us a message. Our mission is to build a profitable botanical enterprise that puts West Virginians and reclaimed coal mine land back to work.
Our brand is built on the strength of our people, place and products—what some refer to as a “triple bottom line” philosophy.
• Since 2019, we’ve been growing lavender at commercial scale on reclaimed coal mine land in Boone County, WV. The plants—and our bees—love it up there on Ashford Hill.
• So do our workers, most of whom come from Boone County.
• We use organic farming practices. No pesticides, no chemicals—ever.
• We produce our high-quality aromatherapy, body care, culinary and home products locally.
Since 2018 we’ve been recruiting and training a local workforce to put reclaimed coal mine land to good use. We have 35 acres of lavender under cultivation with plans to expand to up to 120 acres in the next two years. We have a 15-year lease on this land—so we’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
We’ve achieved revenue and we’re building a strong regional brand with excellent potential as a national brand, so please contact us if you would like to invest in us and our mission.
