Terra Medica - See medicine growing

The wondrous world of medicinal plant cultivation in Staffort is called Terra Medica. This name stands for the fact that the medicinal plant nurseries belonging to DHU and Schwabe in Staffort are far more than just plots of land for cultivating medicinal plants. They are also the terrain from which our medicinal products rise – a true “Terra Medica”.

Quality – without compromise

The majority of medicinal plants processed at DHU originate from our own plants, grown on Terra Medica®, which are cultivated in an optimised biological environment. Join us on a virtual tour of Terra Medica®. All the plants that grow here have their own characteristic properties. They all need different conditions in which to flourish – ultimately in the same way as humans, who stand to benefit from the natural healing powers of the various active ingredients.
