“He could not imagine any greater joy than to go away into the woods for months on end, to break off this chaga, crumble it, boil it up on a campfire, drink it and get well like an animal.”
- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Cancer Ward (1968)
Chaga is a sterile conk (meaning it doesn't have spores) that grows on birch trees and has steadily gained interest in the scientific and medical communities for its wide range of health benefits. Chaga only occurs naturally in roughly 3.75% of the birch trees in the northeast region, according to a paper written by the Maine Forestry Service. The demand for Chaga is soon going to be greater than nature can supply.
We are The Chaga Farmers and we cultivate Chaga in living birch trees by implanting a small wooden Chaga plug, like a seed. We partner with private and commercial landowners of all sizes that have birch on their land using each plot as a surrogate to grow Chaga, called a Chaga Farm. Then, we harvest all of the Chaga and buy it back from you!
1. We first speak on the phone and discuss Chaga Farming.
2. You invite us to your land to assess the forest for Chaga Farming viability.
3. You invest by purchasing the dowels from us and they include installation.
Yellow and white birch with a minimum diameter of 4" are "seeded" with no more than 5 Chaga dowels per tree.
Chaga take 5-7 years before it's ready to harvest.
Each Chaga dowel produces 3 harvest over 15-18 years.
4. We provide yearly Chaga farm check-ups and replace any dowels that are not showing signs of growth by year 3.
5. We harvest all of the Chaga and buy it back from you at a minimum market rate of $5 per lb.
It's a simple and zero maintenance way for you to add another form of profitability from your forests!
The artificial inoculation of Chaga dowels into living birch trees has been studied for many decades around the world, each time fine tuning the process and increasing the yield. On a commercial level, we work closely with foresters all over the state of Maine and provide the most advanced Chaga Farming practices on the planet.
"The healing benefits of chaga have been studied by scientists for decades in the US and used for centuries around the world,' says CEO/Co-Owner Nikki Leroux. "There are over 300 scientific papers written on Chaga and it's medicinal benefits in the National Library of Medicine."
We believe many illnesses are caused by the toxins created by our own bodies in response to prolonged external stress. This results in diseases, anxiety, depression, fatigue, dry skin and hair, poor sleep and an overall sense of unwellness. The natural healing compounds extracted from chaga help to heal the broken molecules, called free radicals, that cause these struggles.
"Let medicine be thy food and food be thy medicine." ~Hippocrates
This investment opportunity provides land owners with new options to profit greater from their forest than with just selective cutting.
