Who we are
SunGold Botanicals LLC is the brainchild of three long-time Oregonians- Josh Gulliver, compost extraordinaire and innovative farmer, Isaac Daniel, fermentation and value-added goods specialist, and John Eveland, organic farmer and founder of Gathering Together Farm. With the onset of the Hemp Pilot program in Oregon, Josh and John started J & J Organics, growing USDA certified organic hemp right in the fertile soils beside the Mary’s River in Philomath. As production grew it became apparent that there was a major lack of infrastructure to process organically grown hemp into certified organic full spectrum hemp oil. This gave birth to SunGold Botanicals, one of the first fully USDA certified hemp processing facilities on the west coast.
Located a mere 3 miles from the fields of hemp, our 8000 square foot facility enables us to produce truly local products and contribute deeply to our local economy. Our facility is dedicated organic and all of our products are certified USDA Organic through OneCert, a premier international organic certifier. (See our Organic Certification tab for more info on what USDA Certified Organic means for hemp products.) Within our facility we have dedicated space for hang drying and batch drying hemp, sorting and storing hemp flower and biomass, extracting hemp into oil using certified organic cane ethanol, and creating a large variety of consumer-level products like salves, tinctures, and lotions.
We are proud to use our self-grown hemp and in-house extracted full spectrum hemp oil in all of our products. The SunGold Botanical product line includes tinctures, massage oils, lotions, CBD-infused coconut oil, and salves. Our interests go beyond hemp too. We also make herbal oils including Arnica Oil and Calendula Oil. All of our calendula is grown beside the hemp and is also certified USDA Organic. In future years we hope to expand our botanical line of products to include essential oils and hydrosols using all self-grown herbs.
