Fenol Farm, Hillsvale
Fenol Farm concentrates on growing botanical medicinals and producing high?value extracts and preparations. It is led by two PhD chemists, Dr. Sherri McFarland and Dr. Colin Cameron, with over 15 years experience in their respective fields; both are highly skilled at extracting, purifying, and characterizing new materials. Recognizing the significant economic opportunity presented by natural products such as resveratrol, Fenol Farm will produce and market several lines of products. The flagship products will be based on resveratrol isolated from Polygonum cuspidatum, a plant that grows very well in Nova Scotia’s climate. Other product lines will be added subsequently to expand and diversify the operation, and profits will be reinvested in research.
