From the careful plant germination, to the hand-harvesting, drying, blending and packaging, farming tea is never simple even in its native tropical climate.
It’s even less so here in Northern Michigan, where Light of Day Tea Farm founder Angela Macke owns and runs the only tea farm in the state.
CALL TO WELLNESS
Founded 10 years ago on the Traverse City land that Macke calls home, Light of Day started small, with just a few crops: peppermint, chamomile, raspberry leaf, and spearmint. It was expanded later to a full farm on M-72 near Sleeping Bear Dunes.
