Mad About Saffron Begins

With support from North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NCR-SARE), our farm is exploring how to grow and sell saffron in the Midwest.

In August 2018, we planted 1000 bulbs outdoors and in containers in a hoop house. We are studying the weed management, labor needed, and market viability.

Learning From Farmers

In November, we traveled to Northumberland Canada to visit True Saffron farm. Our gracious and generous hosts showed us how they harvest and trim saffron. Their model includes making saffron-infused sauces and selling saffron to regional producers.

Purchase Our Saffron

Our 2018 saffron crop was fully cured and ready for sale beginning in November. We will bring it to the Clintonville Farmers’ Market starting April 27, 2019. If you can’t wait until then, email us for purchasing options.
