Mushroom Tinctures & Extracts




   As promised here they are! Introducing our premier line of Medicinal Mushroom tinctures and extracts. Like any other of my undertakings, quality control and attention to detail begin with the first steps. This process begins with either choice Wild Mushrooms or ones that have been grown Certified Organically.

   These are what we call double extracts, there is an alcohol extraction process and a water extraction process, which when combined creates a very complete and comprehensive concentrate (and yes its gluten free). The mushrooms i have chosen have all been shown to have medicinal properties that I will explain in later posts. Generally speaking mushroom tinctures are taken as a dietary supplement.

   These will be available shortly in our online store and during all of the Farmers’ Markets I attend in season, so make sure to check those pages for more info and updates. If you do not want to wait till then or would like to know more about my mushroom tinctures feel free to contact me. Phone orders are currently being accepted.

Help Wanted!

20141126_185146 (1)

After all these years, beginning this Spring I am proud to say I will begin offering Medicinal Mushroom Tinctures and extracts. To include: Maitake, Reshi and Chaga. These will complement my extensive line of fresh, dried, organic and or wild offerings. Stay Tuned!

Final Plantings Of The Season


The last plantings of 2014!! Putting the final garlic and shallot bulbs in the ground and then tucking them in for the winter with a nice blanket of straw mulch. A few thousand lbs of compost was added to this patch and worked into the soil a couple weeks before in preparation. Timed applications of seaweed emulsion, fish emulsion, choice biologicals and other goodies will ensure a healthy bounty of palm sized garlicky goodies once again next summer.


The Planting Never Ends !!!

As the harvest season comes to a gentle close, and the fields are finally laid to rest… the planting continues. Today on this rainy day i am pulling out my seed garlic and separating the cloves in preparation for planting. If the ground dries up I will be planting and mulching in my garlic on Monday. And no … your eyes are not deceiving you.. these heads of garlic are palm size or larger… many cloves are bigger than my thumb!!
