Milky Oat Tops
Dried Oat buds harvested at the milky stage.
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 Milky Oat Tops in July through September.

From our Experience:
When blending herbal tisanes, milky oats typically act as the body herb. They combine well with Holy Basil, Lemon Balm, and almost any other herb, adding a sweet note to any tisane.
