We are getting ready to start new seedlings. This year we plan on expanding production of lavender that we will be drying and using as one of the ingredients in the Special Tea. This tea is one of our best selling teas and helps people to fall asleep more easily and to get back to sleep if they awake in the middle of the night. We have also been expanding production of blackberries and raspberries as these flavors are so popular in our jams. We will also be boiling our maple sap soon to make this season's maple syrup. We have been using mostly maple syrup for sweetener over the past year as we can market our product as completely grown in Vermont. This is a change from our use of predominantly agave syrup. Looking forward to the coming growing season!

Introducing a New Tea Here at Lightfoot Farm: Time for Pause TeaTime for Pause Tea is good for women in their menopausal years. It contains red clover flowers, nettle leaf, comfrey leaf, milky oats, and stevia. Red clover is rich in isoflavones, chemicals that act like estrogens. It may help with hot flashes, cardiovascular health and osteoporosis. Studies so far are inconclusive. Red clover contains low levels of coumarins ,which thin the blood. This tea should not be used by individuals on the prescription medicine Warfarin (Coumadin). Nettles (Urtica dioica) have been known to help rehydrate vaginal tissues. They contain vitamins, minerals, proteins, and micronutrients that are nourishing for many functions in the body. They also are good to maintain healthy bones. Comfrey leaves are safe, according to herbalist Susan Weed (roots can cause liver damage). Comfrey is known to be good for vaginal lubrication, to strengthen bones, to soothe joint pain, and to improve mental functioning.
