This robust Lakadong Turmeric is carefully cultivated under the watchful eye of master farmer, Hambakla Rymbai and the all-women cooperative she leads on the misty slopes of West Jaintia Hills. Experience this exceptionally potent, all-naturally grown turmeric root in your tea, coffee, lattes, smoothies, marinades, rubs, dips, dressings or your morning oatmeal!

Regenerative Farmer: Hambakla Rymbai

Hambakla, along with the all-women cooperative that she leads, practice a number of regenerative agricultural techniques. Turmeric roots are planted on the many hills that surround their home. This is known as contour farming, a practice which allows for maximum conservation of water needed for irrigation. Contour farming also frees up the more limited flat land for other crops, mainly rice.

Hambakla and her cooperative cultivate Lakadong turmeric in their village in the east of Meghalaya. This indigenous Lakadong turmeric is prized for its remarkably high curcumin content (typically 4x the standard) and can only manifest these properties when cultivated in Hambakla’s village or the immediate surroundings. When the root has matured, careful attention must be paid to ensure the rhizome dries fully (a challenge in the state’s frequent rains) in a clean environment before it can then be ground for your use.

This makes an excellent immunity-boosting warm drink! Add 1/4 tsp of Lakadong Turmeric to a coffee cup of hot water with ginger (powder or root), 2-3 crushed Hennali Jungle peppercorns, a squeeze of lemon, and your sweetener of choice!
