Why Our Slippery Elm?
We get our slippery elm material from an experienced network of harvesters in the Southern Appalachians. These skilled botanists excel at obtaining high-quality material. They collect in the spring while sap is running, which allows for easier rossing or separating the inner bark from the hard wood. Collectors look for trees that are at least 15 years old (usually closer to 30) and use only sustainable wild-crafting methods. Our slippery elm bark is non-GMO certified.
