Seeds collected from our gardens where we cherish our wild dandelions! We use the dandelions in salads, tinctures, wine & preps.

Easy to grow, nourishing plant useful for salads, teas and wine. One of the biodynamic compost preparations (506) helping compost work better to grow nourishing food. We use the fully opened flowers to make wine. It produces a wine with a champane like quality that is very healthful. We also collect the flowers that are not fully opened to be used for the preparation. We also tincture the whole plant and use the tincture as a vitamin supplement to provide potassium and nourish as well as cleanse the liver. The plants are companions in our gardens bringing up minerals from the subsoil. We also use the leaves in salads and to add to our cooked greens. Instead of spraying herbicides to kill the dandelion, we encourage them in our gardens.

All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds. The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
