Have never lodged a complaint about any company before, let alone one from a profession with which I am most sympathetic (Nurseries). Nonetheless, I spent a long time on the phone with the man who runs this business, very friendly conversations if not unnecessarily prolongued. I was assured in many separate conversations that my $80 order of comfrey roots would ship out within the next few months. This kept happening for a year and a half. Never got a refund.

On December 9th, 2014, foodforesters changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:

I've now received a refund and apology from the owner.

This company's promotion of comfrey for internal use ("Certainly, millions of people over thousands of years, have consumed Comfrey in various forms for food and medicine... the leaves are consumed daily by multitudes—fresh, cooked, juiced . . .") omits evidence that the herb contains toxic alkaloids that can severely damage the liver, as well as suspected carcinogens. Cases of both animal and human poisoning have long been known, and both the FDA and many herbalists discourage internal use of comfrey.

Buyer beware!
