Many farmers might just except the situation but not Dante Thorpe of Mint Brook Meadows Tea. Dante and his farming buddy Joseph, decided to close down their meager Amish dairy production, till up the soil and plant peppermint. “We took an enormous risk and decided to try something different, fortunately it has worked out pretty well.” Fast forward a few years to find these Ohio farmers harvesting high quality mint and blending it with one of a kind teas from around the globe.

We like the feeling of working together, one small plantation owner supporting the other.” Mint Brook Meadows teas can be purchased both in Middle America grocery stores and online at their website
