Here in the beautiful Annapollis Valley I am pleased to be growing summer savory and using it to create the "flavors of the Maritimes in our spice mixes!
My parents came from Holland in 1958 and started farming here on this farm in 1960. Farmer John' Herbs has evolved and today we have 3 generations working on the farm, growing the crops and delivering the products. We have been wonderfully supported by the public and the grocery stores of the region. Our goal is to bring you "the flavors of the Maritimes" through our savory and many spice mixes. We are a certified organic processor, being certified with ACO, www.atlanticcertifiedorganic.ca , and use mostly organic herbs in our spice mixes.
We are always working on new projects and we expect to have a line of 6 new tea products by the end of April 2013. Summer savory was used by early Acadians as a tea for medicinal purposes and we know that our savory contains carvacrol oils with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, which would indicate that they had the right idea.
We hope that you enjoy our many products and that you let us know your commets, whether positive or not. Many of our current product come from customer suggestions. Also, though we are a working farm and do not have a retail store on site currently, we welcome your visit. We always participate in the Sobeys open farm day around the middle of September so that is a great time to visit.
