We make sure to use the ideal land for Maca farming. The cultivation land is rotated annually and each planted area is allowed to rest for 5 years to ensure growing maca roots with the greatest nutritional power. The land is prepared to begin planting in the months of November and December after natural rains

SOWING

After 8-9 months from planting, the harvest is carried out by families from Junin-Pasco. The cultivation is done in a traditional way (manual) and then they proceed to clean the excess soil from the Maca with the «shaking» technique.

HARVEST

The maca roots are placed on blankets for 30 to 60 days to dry in the sun. Then a second cleaning is carried out to remove the leaves and thus transfer the tubers to the phyto-awnings to reduce humidity. Afterwards, the maca roots are classified by their different ecotypes (colors) and then prepared to be transported for grinding

DRYING

In Lima, our organic maca roots go through the processes of washing, cutting, extrusion, micropulverizing, sieving and packaging, resulting in bulk Gelatinized Maca Powder.
We also have the organic maca encapsulation process.
