Farming Status and Plans
Farming status:Not currently farming
Description of farming status, plans, and practices:
We plan on growing medicinal and culinary herbs and plants for use in beverages and other goods. The plants we grow are ancient and commonly used in folk remedies and ayurvedic and chinese medicines. Some examples of these plants are: wormwood, rhubarb, ashwagandha, and fennel.
Description of marketing method:
We are very active in the NYC restaurant and beverage production community. We will be marketing directly to leading producers and restauranteurs. We have extensive experience with the growing craft beer and craft spirits market and we plan to grow the very ingredients that they are commonly using to make their products. Most of the botanicals commonly used are purchased from outside the country. We hope to make as many as possible available locally.
