O'Toole's Herb Farm is a certified herb grower located on the outskirts of the small, sleepy town of Madison, in the center of North Florida.  O'Toole's, open since 1990, was created by Jim and Betty ('B') O'Toole---a dream come true.  A haven for their customers, the Farm conveys a sense of beauty and peace that is searched for in today's hectic world.  The farm is situated in the middle of a section of family farm owned by 'B's family since the early 1840's.  Everyone enjoys a lazy stroll around the gardens, through the greenhouses or visiting the 2 old cracker houses converted into retail shops.
 
Sadly, Jim "Toolie" lost his battle with lightning fast pancreatic cancer on December 16, 2007.  His presence will always be apparent but deeply missed by all who knew him.

'B' is the recipient of the 2009 NFREC-SV Hall of Fame Award

These days 'B' is doing well......


‘The PATCH’, the main garden, is a beautiful re-charger of the senses and a lovely spot for special occasions. Many of the workshops or seminars that take place at the farm during the spring and fall take place in ‘The Patch’.  The Secret Garden is somewhat enclosed and features a water garden.  It is a lovely, quiet place to pause and reflect.  The Butterfly-Hummingbird Garden is alive with ‘Flying Flowers’ in the spring, summer and fall.  

 

Though organic farming methods, ‘B’ is providing stewardship with the land by growing a quality product, replenishing and maintaining the soil’s fertility while assisting nature’s balance.  No synthetic pesticides or chemical fertilizers are used.  O’Toole’s Herb Farm has been certified organic since 1991.

The Herb Farm has two greenhouses and one shade house open to the public.  Over 350 varieties of herbs, perennials and vegetables are grown.  All are propagated on the farm using organic seeds when possible and existing plants for cuttings.  Plants are available for sale in 4” pots, gallons and some in 3 gallons.  

 

Two quaint old cracker houses have been moved onto the farm and converted into shops and office space. They are loaded with all sorts of fabulous herbal creations, organic gardening supplies, baskets, books, terra cotta and regional art. 

If you can't visit us, be sure to at least take our photo tour....
