VERMONT BOTANICAL COMMONS
Among our farming innovations and future visions is to include growing, harvesting and extraction of botanicals to produce products for health and wellness, with partners Kria Botanicals, Shrubbly Prebiotic Beverages, Upstate Elevator Supply Co., and other agricultural entrepreneurs interested in floral and herbal extractions for tinctures, salves and more.
Currently in the early planning stages.
VT Botanical Commons practices methods of extraction, steeping, blending and mixing botanicals grown at Earthkeep Farmcommon and other area farms. The Commons is an innovative center focused on supporting and advancing the use of botanicals in health and wellness products. Look for these in our upcoming Farmer's Markets.
