We had a dream. Yes. And that was cultivated nettle. Again enthusiastic with scarce knowledge , but many observations of wild nettle we decided to create our fields with this unique plant. We purchased organic, selected seeds from a leading producer in Europe. We produced seedlings on a water bed in our greenhouse. We planted in rows. We built drip irrigation. It was not an easy task, but we did it. There were some difficult moments, especially with weeding. After the second year I bought a mobile watering machine.

We collect young stalks, in three cuts a year. The yields are increasing every year. We dry it in the shade or in our dryer at 45 degrees.
