Pick-Your-Own Milky Oats

June 27, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

Milky oats (Avena Sativa) are the oat tops harvested when they are in their milky stage, during which the oat tops release a white, milky sap when squeezed. This stage lasts approximately one week, just before the seed hardens and becomes the oat grain we eat as oatmeal. Tincturing the milky oats while fresh preserves their bioactive potency. Alternatively, milky oats can be dried and used as a nutritive tonic and are a beautiful addition to tea blends.

Fox Haven is happy to offer pick-your-own chemical-free farm-grown Milky Oats. More dates may be announced for the following week.
