Equinox in Harvest

Happy Equinox and the Earths day of balance between day and night! Fall has just begun here in Vt by date and cooler weather after six weeks of incredible weather!

We are enjoying a bountiful harvest of apples and more this year. Its been a bumper crop year of apples and other fruits here in Vermont and we are hard at work trying to gather and process all of that precious medicine into foods, dried, extracted and more.

Working with Wild Branch Foods, we will release a new cider jelly this year based on our abundance of the good tart and sweet!

we are also getting the roots and bodies of plants out of the ground as well! We recently harvested Ashwagandha and Solomons seal with a Johnson State College herbal class that came for the day of harvest and medicine making.
