Almost 10 years and growing

My 20+ year interest in growing, using and learning about herbs led us to open Cloverleaf Herb Farm in 1998.

Our goal has always been to offer a wide variety of high quality plants and herbal products at a reasonable price. We specialize not only in herbs, but also old-fashioned plants. In our greenhouses, you'll find common and unusual varieties of culinary, medicinal and fragrance herbs. We offer 17 varieties of basil, 11 mints, 10 lavenders and 17 thymes. We carry unique varieties like costmary, lemon grass, vietnamese coriander, patchouli and valerian. We offer an extensive selection of tried and true old-fashioned plants. These are plants like hollyhock, larkspur, clove pinks, four o'clocks, Jupiter's beard, lithodora and bells of Ireland that were found in grandma's garden.

Many varieties of both herbs and ornamental plants are found in extensive themed gardens on our three acre property.

With the opening of our herb shop, our inventory expanded to include herb related products. Many are grown and harvested here at the farm. We offer bulk herbs and spices, dried flowers, decorative wreaths and arrangements, dried topiaries, potpourri and sleep pillows. In addition, we stock cosmetic and gift items like handmade soaps, body and linen sprays, organic candles, beaded jewelry and pet products. We carry herbal and gardening books, soapmaking supplies, containers and essential oils in the shop.

Gift certificates are available and we accept VISA, Mastercard and Discover for greenhouse and shop purchases. Our informative newsletters, sent in the spring and fall, cover a variety of herbal topics, plant profiles and recipes, etc. We offer a series of classes on herbal and gardening topics each spring.

April - Christmas, the greenhouse and herb shop are open Tuesday - Saturday, 9 AM to 5 PM, with additional hours in spring.

January through March, the shop is open Thursday - Saturday, 9 AM to 5 PM.
