We believe well grown food can be the best medicine. We grow and wildcraft a variety of nutrient dense fruits, herbs, mushrooms and veggies throughout the summer. As each berry, leaf, flower, root, mushroom or fruit comes into season some will go into our solar dryer for later blending into tea mixes or tincture.
Some berries go to the freezer to later be turned into syrup.
For the first time, we are now offering a collection of this preserved summer goodness as a Medicine Share. Available in November as a one time pick up (since everything is shelf stable we could also ship this share).
For $65 share holders receive :
3 herbal tea blends – our tea blends are tasty and full of vitamins and minerals to keep your immune system humming along. These teas are herbal, contain no caffeine and are loose. VT Earl Gray Tea is our local version of the same flavor profiles as traditional Earl Gray. Berry Good Tea contains a mix of dried berries and berry plant leaves, full of antioxidants and vitamins and tart, rich berry flavor. Our newest tea blend tastes like a walk in the woods, containing evergreen needles, sage and Tulsi.
4 oz. Elderberry/Black Currant Syrup- Fight off colds and flu with this sweet medicine made with Elderberry and Black Currant juices, local honey, organic cider vinegar, and tincture of rose hips, Tulsi, and Echinacea.
4oz dried Shiitake mushrooms– Our dried Shiitakes can be rehydrated in warm water and thrown into all kinds of dishes, or tossed into soup. We sun dry our mushrooms which greatly increases the Vitamin D content. Enjoy shiitakes just because they taste delicious, knowing that they are also boosting your immune system!
3# Garlic– Probably the best example of food as medicine, garlic is antimicrobial and fights off viruses and promotes immune health all while making just about anything you cook taste better.
