Herb Farms A-Z: Finding Farms that Sell Herbs, Part 1

n.heraud2You can check out the Lemon Verbena Lady at her blog Lemon Verbena Lady's Herb Garden.  

Here is a list of herb farms in various parts of the United States. I found herb farms in 37 of the 50 states. This is not an exhaustive list, and it doesn't feature every state, but maybe it will help start your own journey to find an herb farm in your area. I have done my best to make sure that these are valid sites. In some cases though, it has been a secondary link such as Facebook or another organization that I have used. I mainly chose these sites because they say they sell herb plants. Most of these herb farms do not have a catalog. They want you to come for a visit. I found in my experience that growers of herbs are passionate people and make their herb business a destination to enjoy. 

Please do your homework and call or e-mail before making a drive to these farms to be sure they do have herb plants for sale. If they ask where you found them, please say through The Herb Companion magazine website.
