Possum Creek Herb Farm’s humble start began with a few gardens and one greenhouse in July 1998. Open on Sundays, the farm drew in people from down the street or two or three states away. These people stopped in to pick up healthy, organically grown herbs to grow in their own gardens, often returning several times a season and always at special events, classes and open houses.
It really was a simpler time that first five years.
Many changes have come to the farm in these
past fifteen years with the largest and most productive being the
wholesale operation that began in 2006.
I can proudly say our herb plants are in almost every state of the nation in small nurseries, little shops and quaint herb gardens
and even in the National Arboretum in Washington D.C..
Possum Creek has become a growing facility that my family can be
visiting with all of my friends and customers at the local
farmers markets. It is a great time to pick up a local order or
just pick up a few plants or other herbal products. The farmers
market schedule is listed on the events
