Located in Appalachia, the oldest mountains on earth, Herb Mountain Farm was originally established in 1970, as an organic vegetable and flower farm, by Hart Squire and his family in Weaverville, North Carolina. It is our goal, our greatest hope, that we can bring people here to share in the love of plants and all of nature to cultivate relationship and understanding.
Who We Are
We are a 138-acre Botanical Sanctuary and Learning Community in the Appalachian Mountains, nestled between the Reems Creek Valley and the peaks of Mount Mitchell, calling in folks who want to come join us in honoring the natural world.
Some of us have been nurturing the land all of our lives, some of us are rekindling that connection and some of us are just learning how to know the land, make allies with the plants and trees and creatures around us. Wherever we are on that spectrum, we can learn from one another and share in the wisdom of the natural world – we are a part of it!
At Herb Mountain Farm, you will find numerous opportunities for immersing yourself in a plant haven, whether you are coming for a educational, renewal and inspiration reasons. There are workshops, classes, amazing food, cozy beds, garden tours, trail walks and more!
