We harvest Ethiopia rosemary leaves by cutting off two to three inches of every sprig. These cuttings usually have the oil content that not only spices up meals but serves as medicine. We then dry the stems so that they can undergo processing for the oil. We then wait until the needlelike leaves are mature and pick them the same way as any other leafy plant. All of our harvesting methods include sharp sterilized pruning equipment and harvesting scissors.

We also process Ethiopia rosemary for sale as a dried tinned product. Soon after harvesting, we dry the leaves and stems using an industrial dehydrator. Mechanical trays remove excess moisture under high temperatures in just a few minutes. We only keep single layers of Ethiopia rosemary leaves on the trays so as to ensure uniform drying. In a few minutes, our experienced workers take off the leaves and place them on sheets for settling in anticipation for packing.
The final step involves hanging the dry rosemary leaves upside down so that the pointed needles will come off the leaves. Finally, our workers under the supervision of a food safety representative in Ethiopia oversees the removal of the naturally dry leaves off the hangers. They then rub them off the stems before putting the now powdery leaves into jute bags or tins.

You may also request for medium and larger sizes than these. Each packet or carton consists of whole and split dry leaves with some powdery elements.
