Salvatore Family Farm is a small family farm located in Chichester, NH. We specialize in growing organic saffron. Saffron is the world's most expensive spice and is primarily grown in Europe and the Middle East, but we are proud to be able to grow this great spice in the US!
We planted our first saffron fields in 2019 and have never looked back. Our fields are tended strictly by hand from planting to harvesting (and everything in between). We care about where our food comes from and how it's grown. We do not use any chemicals or pesticides on our farm - not even those approved to be organic! We provide high quality products that make it easy to get your daily dose of saffron.

The flavor and aroma of saffron is very unique. Saffron imparts a beautiful flavor with amber, sweet, floral, and earthy notes with an aroma that lingers. Pure saffron will leave foods with a golden yellow color.
Although saffron is most famously known as a culinary spice, used to flavor dishes such as paella or cream sauces, it has also been valued medicinally by eastern cultures.
In Ayurvedic medicine, saffron is known as the sunshine spice. Not only for its golden color but also for its mood-boosting qualities.
Saffron's main components (crocin, crocetin, carotene, safranal) are potent antioxidants. Saffron holds a wide list of health benefits: reduces inflammation, improves sleep quality, helps combat ADHD symptoms, enhances skin, reduces depression and anxiety, and relieves symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. More and more studies continue to be completed that show the awesome health benefits of saffron!
