Sacred Blossom Dream Tea

Small scale farming and artisan care allows us create functional, delicious and beautiful herbal teas.

No, this isn't sawdust. It's what's inside an entire box of mass produced herbal teabags.

Grown Naturally

We grow our herbs in poly-cultures in biologically active soils.  Minimal fertilizer and irrigation makes heartier, more potent herbs.

handled with care

We dry our herbs at low temperatures and process by hand and with custom built machines to produce dry herbs of uncommon quality.

Fresh

We grow and dry what we can each year and sell it fresh. When the season’s harvest is sold out, you’ll have to wait for the next one.

Tony D.  Owner, CEO and President.  Chief web developer and in charge of shipping your order.  I manage wholesale accounts to 50 stores and package most of the teas.  My favorite role is growing the herbs that go into Sacred Blossom teas. There are no other employees but I get help from a wonderful world of mentors and neighbors, sporadic volunteers, my landlords and friends.

Born in California, I went to highschool in Costa Rica then business school in Argentina. I dropped out to start a horse tour company and run a beachfront restaurant in Uruguay. Then I became a barefooted global nomad, of course.

At 22 I met Farmer Paul, a then 70 year old, life long student of health; soil, plant, animal and spiritual. He taught me so much and had a tremendous impact on my path. I learned under Paul for six growing seasons (nomading during Minnesota’s long winters) then went on a two year long farm tour, culminating in working the summer on an industrial scale organic herb farm in Oregon.

I started Sacred Blossom in spring 2016 on rented land at Crazy Rooster Farm. The capital available to start this business I had saved while working at other farms, which is to say, I pretty much didn’t have any. I was blessed to find this beautiful farm in a community with many organic produce growers. In 2019 Sacred Blossom produced about 2,200# of herbs which is the capacity of our buildings and infrastructure.

The goals for the next three years on the farm are the same as they’ve been for the past three years. Always better, not bigger. Don’t go out of business. Be grateful. Learn. Love life. Contribute. Now that things are a bit established there is a new goal too - save money so that I can eventually own a farm and raise a family.

My long term goal is to be the steward of a lot of land. I envision large scale mixed land usage with the best benefit to ecology, agriculture, residential and tourism. Please get in touch or join the mailing list if you share this dream.

Sacred Blossom Farm / Crazy Rooster Farm and Amish Telephone Booth is located in the beautiful driftless region of western Wisconsin near the town of Gilmanton. Due to chronic understaffing, we are only open to the public during our annual open house.

Growing Medicine, Not Commodities.

 

We grow our herbs close together, in dense polycultures, so plant roots intermingle. Living soil. It’s how medicinal herbs grow in nature. Closeness and companionship, along with competition and struggle, leads to vitality and potency. Sure, it’s more expedient to plant and harvest large monocultures.  Yields are higher in well fertilized and irrigated fields but big bushy herbs are weak. Our goal is highest quality, not most volume.

 

Cutting The Best

 

Small scale production allows us to harvest herbs by hand and at the perfect time. Efficiently but with respect for the plants and their end use. Ugly herbs, browning bottom leaves and all stems go to the compost pile. We reject herbs other farms would grind and put in your tea bag.

 

Drying and De-stemming with Care

 

We learned a lot from looking at herb farms around the world. Including how not to handle herbs. We have seen them dried in the sun, like hay.  Or blasted with hot air. Then run through huge machines which grind and pulverize the plants.

We chose instead to follow a more sacred process. We dry each variety slowly, at just the right temperature, to dry-in freshness and potency.  We have custom built, human-scale machines which allow us to de-stem and cut herbs with the highest level of artisan quality.

Low-input, Sustainable, Innovative Farming

 

I didn’t start farming to get rich but to follow a dream of living and working in harmony with nature. Sustainable is so difficult in the modern age with easy access to tractor power and soil consultants recommending adding tons of amendments to the acre. We try to minimize inputs, tractor usage and are soon to phase out our clear plastic canisters for more sustainable packaging.

In the fields we are developing innovative polyculture systems, inter-seeding strategies, small scale weeding tools, using minimum tillage, intensive cover cropping maintained by animals, long term sequential no-till plantings, pig tillage, soil health and fertility strategies a-la Dr. Elaine Ingham and Gabe Brown, and so much more. What can we say… its our passion. And our herbs are dried largely with solar power too.

Join our mailing list. We send 2 - 4 emails each year announcing our open house, the yearly release of new tea blends, etc.

Since our teas are whole leaf and additive free they take a little longer to brew. Pour 12 oz boiling water over 2 grams of herbs. Let brew for 7 - 10 minutes. Strain, then enjoy
