SOURCING

Turmeric is a relatively new crop for Nicaragua, where it helps to improve the livelihood of the local farmers as a higher value crop than their main export: coffee. It turns out that turmeric is very happy in the rich volcanic soil and the mountainous terrain. 

Our turmeric is grown by a group of farmers in Nicaragua that allow their plants to grow for 2 years before each harvest, rather than the typical 6-12 months. Each plant can yield a shocking 10lbs of fresh turmeric, and the extended ripening period kicks the curcumin levels waaay up.
