Dandelion Root - Grown Organically
Grown organically and regeneratively by one of the Meeting House Farm Collaborative Farms. Available chipped.
Chipped roots are dried immediately after harvest in an on-farm drying facility to maximize potency and preserve quality.
Pre-orders are closed until Spring of 2024.
For customers who pre-ordered from our 2023 harvest, you were put into a queue for the next harvested pound. Orders will ship out in the order they were received.
Smaller bags (1 oz and 4 oz sizes) will be made available once we have filled all pre-orders.
We typically harvest Dandelion Roots in May and June.

Roast the roots to add a fabulous and healthy garnish to a salad. Very bitter in infusions unless specifically blended to act in a coffee-like manner. Dandelion greens make a fabulous liver-supporting pesto. The blossoms make excellent fritters and wine.
