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, to bring people here to share in the love of plants and all of nature and together 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.
