Echinacea roots. Echinacea purpurea.
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 Echinacea roots in Late Fall.

From our Experience:
Echinacea is a beautiful addition to any garden. It feeds pollinators during the season and birds all winter.
Use dried leaves and flowers in an infusion within the first 8 months after harvest. The roots maintain medicinal value for up to 18 months. Test your Echinacea's effectiveness with the mouth buzz test - if it buzzes your mouth when you taste it, it’s active!
