We started the Farm and Herb Festival years ago to give the public free farm tours. Over the years it has evolved into an event where you can come and learn about health and the healthy products that are available in our area. We also have guided herb garden tours, herb talks and herb plants for sale! It is a great way to explore the farm and learn about the community!
