Maca harvest season is in May. The Maca root is unburied from the soil by hand and placed in large sacks where two persons shake-off the dirt and leave the root bulbs soil-free. Maca grows as a native plant in the high planes of Peru with freezing temperatures and high winds.

The root is then washed, peeled and placed in a low-temperature dehydrator. After the moisture is extracted, the maca is pulverized and packed.
