|Open since 1990, O'Toole's Herb Farm is a certified organic herb nursery and gardens. We wholesale and retail herbal plants, fresh-cut herbs and greens, and shiitake mushrooms. On site are 2 gift shops full of herbal products, regional art, gardening supplies and organic products. Remember that we are now primarily a wholesale nursery but are delighted to have retail guests. Call in advance to set up an appointment.|
Groups are always welcome by special request.
Ah! Do I feel a little change in the air? The humidity, heat, bugs and
weed-growth of our ‘longest summer’ are about to dissipate and the
desire to seek the sanity and sweetness of the garden will return. The
magic of Fall in the deep South delights us all! With that seasonal
change brings the return of activities at the farm. \
Late Spring and Summer were filled with wonderful travels and adventure. A magical trip to Europe was the highlight. Wonderful time spent with Monday Volunteer, Dot Bacot in Brugges, Belgium, and a dream come true visit to Paris and Giverney, France. Many trips to the cool of the Western North Carolina Mountains made the heat of this summer bearable. Lots of good company and good times were shared. Great trip out West is planned for this Fall with friends from Native Nurseries.
Other changes are in the air at O’Toole’s. The farm’s five year transition plan will be coming to an end January 1, 2016. Roosevelt Oliver, who has been the most wonderful and faithful employee, will be retiring. I am sure he will be around as there is always a lot to be done on the farm. The pressure of ‘greenhouse production’ for wholesale will be eliminated but Monday Volunteers will still come. Friday Yoga in the Heartspace and the occasional workshop/special event will still happen for as long as folks are interested in participating. The greenhouse (retail sales) and the garden will be open by appointment. Exciting times ahead!
MONDAY – MONDAY!
