The Herb Farm gardens: a co-creative partnership with nature.
The Herb Farm is set in the wild tranquility of rural Ashhurst and we promote this tranquility throughout the property. Our fourteen themed gardens have been developed within a creative partnership with nature; rather than fight against nature we work with it to ensure our gardens grow as nature intended. Raised beds, mulching and allowing the plants to grow strong and develop their own survival strategies have resulted in a health and vibrancy which many visitors feel, see and experience on their garden walks.
The gardens are open all year round Monday - Sunday 10am - 4:30pm and some public holidays. The garden is at it's most decorative from October - March but each season has it's special magic. Our gardens have no entry fee so all can enjoy their beauty and tranquility.
Our Working Garden
Our garden is a working garden, where herbs are harvested to create tinctures and oils to use in our 100% natural skincare and healthcare products manufactured on site. The fourteen themed gardens over 2 acres are enjoyed by all ages and kids love finding the fairies, gnomes and elves hidden in the woods.
The abundant bird and insect life fits in with nature's grand plan for these gardens. Gaia, the philosophy that says that the earth participates in its own healing, is a concept we embrace at The Herb Farm. Visit us and see the living magic at work in the gardens and experience it by using our products.
