Dried Lemon Balm aerial parts.
Grown organically and regeneratively by one of the Meeting House Farm Collaborative Farms. Plants 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 Lemon Balm from July through October.

From our Experience:
We love to slip a stem of lemon balm in our water while we work in the fields. When blending herbal tisanes, lemon balm typically acts as the base herb and combines well with holy basil (tulsi), milky oats, marshmallow, mint, and lavender.
