List of Farms and Supporting Businesses
Tours of our medicinal herb farm and food forest throughout the day, between the hours of 11 am-4 pm. Our farm is on a hillside, parking is limited and space to turn around can get tricky, Sundays are a great day to park on sides of Diamond Knob Rd and walk down the short driveway. The food forest and apothecary farm tours are free and do not require registration. Please come join us, and check out our new cordwood herb processing center and apothecary!
