Company Profile: Richters Herbs

A Family-run Business Turned Herbal Landmark

| June/July 2002

  • An exhibitor’s table of herb goodies in the greenhouse is irresistable to this Annual Herb Fair visitor.
  • This is just one of Richters’ many growing fields.
  • Conrad Richter, vice president of Richters, leads an onsite seminar.
  • In Richters’ greenhouse, visitors can choose from an assortment of herb plants.
  • ‘Margarita’ mint is a new intro in 2002 and suggested for use in the fragrant tea blend at right.

“We live and breathe herbs here.”

That’s what they say at Richters Herbs, an internationally known herb nursery and mail-order business in the little town of Goodwood, just outside Toronto, Ontario.



For herb lovers, a visit to Richters is like being a kid in a candy store. Greenhouses are open year-round—even in the snowy Canadian winter—and crammed with a tantalizing selection of plants. Looking for lemongrass? No problem. Want to expand your echinacea collection? Richters has half a dozen kinds to choose from. Revel in the endless rows of scented geraniums or splurge on a baby bo tree (Ficus religiosa), a junior version of the one that sheltered Buddha during his meditations. An adjoining gift shop features books, pots, stationery, and seeds—enough to satisfy the most ardent herb-o-phile.

If you’re lucky, you might be able to attend one of the many free seminars or special events held onsite, such as soap-making or landscaping with herbs.
