Our lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a harmonious blend of responsibly wild foraged and farm-grown plants, meticulously crafted to deliver the finest quality and exceptional benefits.
At Moon Chaser Farm, we believe in the importance of sustainable practices and responsible sourcing. Our dried lemon balm is a result of a careful balance between wild foraging and farm cultivation.
We carefully hand-select lemon balm leaves from pristine locations where it thrives abundantly. By adhering to ethical wild foraging practices, we ensure the preservation of these precious ecosystems for future generations to enjoy.
In addition to wild foraging, we cultivate lemon balm on our farm using organic and sustainable methods. By growing lemon balm on our farm, we ensure a consistent supply of this remarkable herb while minimizing the impact on wild populations.
